Rent

 (2005)

Rent Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Set in New York City's gritty East Village, the revolutionary rock opera Rent tells the story of a group of bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent. "Measuring their lives in love," these starving artists strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness and the AIDS epidemic. Rent is based on Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer and Tony Award winning musical, one of the longest running shows on Broadway. The raw and riveting musical stars Rosario Dawson, Taye Diggs, Wilson Jermaine Heredia, Jesse L. Martin, Idina Menzel, Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp and Tracie Thoms and is directed by Chris Columbus.

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

Rent Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sony sends in Rent with a rock-solid, 1080p high definition transfer. Presented in its original 2.40:1 image, nothing about this image looks anything less than flawless. Black levels are deep and pure; each scene where they are present showcases an inky perfection. While the film offers up a slightly drab and muted color palette, there is still an abundance of colors that are vibrant and rich, especially in brighter scenes, notably those taking place outdoors. There is no softness in any scene that I noted, and every detail is naturally sharp with a lifelike look and feel. Every scene is filled with lusciously reproduced, highly detailed scenery. Even the many drab locales look amazing. The loft where several characters reside is raised to the level of a minor role with the amount of detail seen in every shot, speaking to us as if it were a character in the film. Everything else, from close- ups of the cast to the clothing they wear to the streets on which they live couldn't be any more real save for a trip to the set in person. Sony has once again released a disc with a stunning image, and fans of Rent will want to add this to their collection immediately.


Rent Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Sony presents Rent with a rare choice between two high definition soundtracks. Provided is an uncompressed PCM 5.1 soundtrack as well as a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix. I screened the entirety of the film with the PCM track. The two seemed transparent to me in the few scenes in which I sampled them back-to-back, as they should be. One complaint I have with this mix is also one I had with another musical I've reviewed, High School Musical 2. The vocals of the numbers in both films clearly sound as if they have been recorded in the studio rather than being performed "live" during the shooting of the movie. Certainly, I don't expect them to be, but the effect is very obvious and distracting, though it's much less obvious in Rent than it is in Disney's pre-teen musical sensation which has "studio" written all over it. Nevertheless, part of the reason I could never get into this film was the clearly re-mixed and processed sounding vocals, a problem I've never noticed in the classics of the musical genre from bygone eras. One other nagging problem is that the film frequently mixes music, oftentimes modern rock numbers, with dialogue, and the spoken words seem to get lost underneath the loud instrumentation. Other than these two issues which are more nagging than serious, the track sounded just fine. There is a good bit of ambience to be heard as the sounds of the city permeate the entirety of the soundstage. Dialogue reproduction is excellent, again notwithstanding the sometimes hard-to-hear words underneath blaring guitar riffs. All in all, this is a solid mix and one that is sure to be a crowd pleaser for fans of the film.
