Planes, Trains & Automobiles Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The bad news is that Planes, Trains & Automobiles is another Paramount catalogue title that suffers through some unsightly noise reduction. The good news is that the end result is nowhere near as atrocious as what was seen in another recent release of a 1980s vintage film, Footloose. Indeed, Planes, Trains & Automobiles displays obvious noise reduction that yields pasty skin textures and frozen grain fields that, like Footloose, tend to move around in globs as if pulled and warped by an unnatural attraction between human and solid surface. Fortunately, the image isn't a total loss. Fine detail is still fair, even on some facial textures. The transfer also manages to reveal in great detail the texture of Neal's sports jacket and overcoat and the tiniest little signs of wear and tear on Del's rugged old beater of a travel trunk. There's a crispness and clarity about the image, and detailing is still boosted by the increase in resolution over standard definition. Still, the noise reduction is cause for concern, though in this case it's not a total deal breaker simply because it's not quite as severe as the abomination that is Footloose. Black crush is also a running problem, but there's not a complete loss of shadow detail in some of the darker scenes. Colors look good and represent the transfer's finest asset. Bright hues and dreary and cold grays alike are natural and pleasant. Lastly, the transfer is home to a few random pops and speckles, but nothing super distracting. Yes, this transfer is a disappointment. It's a bit better than it might have been if Footloose is representative of the bottom of big studio barrels, but it's nevertheless bad enough to warrant and wish for a remastered presentation somewhere down the road. Planes, Trains & Automobiles deserves nothing less.


Planes, Trains & Automobiles Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Planes, Trains & Automobiles sounds a whole lot better than a Chatty Cathy doll. For the most part, this is a dialogue film that has little need for major sound effects or even prominent supportive elements. Fortunately, dialogue is strong, clear, and balanced, but the track handles its various odds and ends quite well, too, even if they're generally few and far between. Music plays with a wide, enveloping feel. Each note is crisp and satisfying, clear and accurate in every instance. City ambience in the early New York taxicab sequence is nicely integrated, with honking horns, background chatter, and the general chaotic din of last-minute, pre-holiday hustle and bustle. The same may be said for various crowded airport scenes, but with a slightly less pronounced volume. Both the track's ability to yield seamless directional effects and a strong low end are tested when a halting but still rumbly train comes to a stop in chapter ten. The effect is handled without incident. All said, this is a good performer, nothing sonically special but a fine track and a solid companion for a 1980s Comedy.
