Repo Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alex Cox's Repo Man arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"Approved by director Alex Cox, this new digital transfer was created in 2K resolution on an ARRISCAN film scanner from the original camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, and warps were manually removed using MTI's DRS, while Image Systems' Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, noise reduction, flicker, and jitter.

Transfer supervisor: Lee Kline.
Colorist: Joe Gawler/Harbor Post, New York."

The new and approved by director Alex Cox high-definition transfer is not identical to the one Eureka Entertainment used for their Blu-ray release of Repo Man in the United Kingdom. In addition to the framing -- the Criterion transfer is framed in 1.78:1 but actually has more information on the top and bottom -- brightness levels and color saturation are also different. Generally speaking, Criterion's high-definition transfer is also slightly darker (or the UK release has elevated brightness levels). Compression is also marginally better on the Criterion release. The most obvious discrepancies are during close-ups where light isn't severely restricted (compare screencapture #18 with screencapture #14 from our review of the UK release). In most cases, image depth is marginally better on the Criterion release. The color discrepancies are also very easy to spot. On the Criterion release the greens, browns, blues, and grays are richer and better saturated (compare screencapture #1 with screencapture #15 from our review of the UK release). Furthermore, grain is visible throughout the entire film, but as it was the case with the UK release there is light noise that is occasionally mixed with it. There are no traces of problematic sharpening corrections. Also, there are no large damage marks, debris, cuts, or warps. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. All in all, I think that the Criterion release of Repo Man is the all-around better looking release, but the UK release is also very healthy. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Repo Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless audio track impresses with strong depth and very good fluidity. It will not test the muscles of your audio system, but if you appreciate organic sound more than likely you will enjoy its good range of nuanced dynamics. The great soundtrack also gets a decent boost and further enhances the unique atmosphere. The dialog is crisp, stable, and easy to follow. There are no audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
