Network Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Network beams onto Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p image in 1.78:1. I saw this film several times theatrically and can attest to the fact it never featured the sharpest looking image, something that director Lumet actually seems to favor, at least in his "big city" urban mode. The overall image here is therefore slightly on the soft side, though that is representative of what the film originally looked like. Too many younger viewers come to these mid-1970's films without appreciating them within the context of their times; from the early 1970's to around a decade later, films by and large were much, much softer looking than they are today, and Network fits that pattern to a tee. There's a noticeable uptick in color and saturation here, with good to very good fine detail. Note for example the funny-crazy patterned news set for Beale, which in previous home video releases never popped the way it does on BD. In the most brightly and naturally lit scenes, fine detail is quite good; in the main scene with Holden and Straight, with some lingering close-ups, it's exceptional. Black levels are really good, especially in the many dark control booth sequences, where the mixers' dark hair never crushes into the background shadows. Grain is intact and gives the film a suitably natural look.


Network Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Network debuts on Blu-ray with a generally fine, if obviously very narrow, DTS-HD Master Audio mono mix. Some of the film suffers from a bit of boxiness, but generally dialogue and effects are delivered with robust fidelity. This is actually a film which could have benefited quite well from a repurposed 5.1 track, especially in some of the multi-network simultaneous feed sequences, where everything pumping out of one channel can make the track sound muddled and too busy. Generally, though, this is a clean and damage free track. It may not be very exciting or modern day cinema-like, but it gets the job done with a minimum of fuss and bother.
