Nights in Rodanthe

 (2008)

Nights in Rodanthe Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

From 'Message in a Bottle' to 'The Notebook' cinematic adaptations of Nicholas Sparks's novels are sure to inspire tears, and this drama should be no exception. Diane Lane and Richard Gere, who previously played a couple in 'Unfaithul', star here as an unhappily married woman and a conflicted man drawn together by a storm in the town of Rodanthe, North Carolina.

For more about Nights in Rodanthe and the Nights in Rodanthe Blu-ray release, see Nights in Rodanthe Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Nights in Rodanthe Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray edition of Nights in Rodanthe may have its fair share of problems (more on that later), but its rich 1080p/VC-1 transfer is the only aspect of this disc that adds substantial value to the release. While Wolfe's subdued palette is underwhelming at times, primaries are relatively bold, fleshtones are natural, and blacks are well resolved. Aside from a single sequence in which the transfer had trouble rendering clean reds (notice the man's flannel shirt and woman's bright blouse during the community's evening party), colors are strong, stable, and solid. Contrast is also quite attractive, blessing the image with convincing depth and dimensionality. More importantly, detail is sharp, fine fabric and skin textures are crisp, and delineation is revealing. A few soft shots pop up here and there (particularly when Adrienne returns home in the third act), but they usually appeared to be the result of the original print rather than its presentation here. It's tough to tell whether Warner employed a minor application of DNR -- a few close-ups do look suspiciously waxy compared to other standout shots -- but I rarely felt that the picture looked over-processed or artificial.

Thankfully, noise and artifacting are kept to a minimum. Even banding is kept under control despite scene after scene of cloudy skies and looming storms. I caught glimpses of all three issues in a handful of establishing shots, but they didn't become a legitimate distraction. As it stands, my only major complaint involves the use of some rather obvious edge enhancement. White outlines are clearly visible against the gray Rodanthe skies on more than one occasion and I found myself wishing studios would abandon such unnecessary enhancements and allow a high definition presentation to sink or swim on its own merits. Regardless, Nights in Rodanthe offers an impressive video transfer that should easily please fans of the film and give all those bored-boyfriends out there something to enjoy.


Nights in Rodanthe Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Sigh. At a time when Warner has been working so diligently to include lossless audio on every release, Nights in Rodanthe arrives with nothing more than a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track. Granted, a DTS HD MA or TrueHD mix wouldn't have improved matters much since the film is a conversational, front-heavy affair, but I would have at least liked to hear it presented without any possible compromises in quality. To its credit, dialogue is intelligible and nicely prioritized, effects have been neatly placed throughout the soundfield, and pans are quick and smooth. Sadly, the rear speakers are largely silent, ambience is uninvolving and underdeveloped, interior acoustics are surprisingly inconsistent, and proper LFE support is nowhere to be found. I doubt the disc's lifeless sonics are solely the product of a lossy audio track (I would blame the film's lackluster sound design on all counts), but it certainly doesn't help. Instead of delivering a robust and immersive experience, dynamics are limited, fidelity is problematic, and the majority of the soundscape has been crammed into the center speaker. All things considered, this one is passable but ultimately disappointing.
