Risky Business

 (1983)

Risky Business Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Racy suburban comedy about a party-loving teen who is living the high life while his parents are out of town until a mishap with his father's Porsche requires some quick cash. The enterprising youth turns pimp and starts an escort service for his slavering chums. But things get complicated when business booms and he falls for one of his "employees."

Risky Business Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Risky Business arrives on Blu-ray from Warner Brothers sporting a fine 1080p transfer utilizing the VC-1 compression codec. The film is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and has aged extremely well. Risky Business has never been a typical looking film. Stylistically, the film features a number of stylized scenes that border on noir at times and even cross over into territory that might look at home in a Michael Mann film. Just take a look at the film's opening slow-motion sequence of Chicago's "El" train. It's the perfect way to open a film and show that the audience is in for something quite a bit more interesting than the typical teenybopper fodder.

Warner has done a fine job with this restoration of Risky Business. The restored source material is clean and well preserved and the film shows natural and appropriate film grain. Colors are also well represented, if a bit muted stylistically. Black levels are nicely rendered and detail is well preserved. I've never seen Risky Business look this good before and I'm thrilled to have the film in my library in such fantastic condition. Recommended!


Risky Business Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While not a sonic tour-de-force, Risky Business does benefit greatly from Warner's inclusion of a 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack. The primary benefactor of this TrueHD track's greater fidelity is the film's outstanding score from avante garde electronic composers Tangerine Dream. The film's score moves around the soundstage effectively with firmly rooted bass and an almost supernatural ambience that fills the listening environment. It really is a wonderful presentation of a film score that is not only underrated, but truly innovative.

Being primarily a dialogue driven film, Risky Business again benefits from Dolby TrueHD by presenting dialogue in a crisp, clear and easily intelligible manner. On the surround front, there isn't much to write home about with Risky Business, save a car chase and the occasional ambient fill. All told, this isn't a track that's going to blow anyone out of the water, but for fans of the film, the upgrade is clear and appreciated.
