Roadie

 (2011)

Roadie Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

For over 20 years, Jimmy Testagross has lived his childhood dream: being a roadie for his childhood heroes, Blue Oyster Cult. But the band's Arena-Rock glory days are a distant memory. County fairs and club gigs pay the bills. And Jimmy has become a casualty of these leaner times. With no place to go, no job prospects, and no real skills outside of being a roadie, Jimmy needs to regroup. So he returns to his childhood home in Queens, Ny. There, he revisits old relationships: his ailing, widower mom, a high school crush, a former nemesis and, most importantly, his relationship with himself. Jimmy, the middle-aged man-child, has never grown up. He still carries the resentments and frustrations of his youth, and has allowed them to fester and define who and what he is.

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

Starring: Ron Eldard, Bobby Cannavale, Jill Hennessy

Roadie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

I couldn't dig up any definitive info on whether The Roadie was shot digitally or on film, but the Blu-ray's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer looks to me like it was sourced from a 35mm print--it's got a layer of grain that's too warm and filmic-looking to be digital source noise. That said, there's something digital-ish about this picture. It's not quite apparent from a distance--unless you've got a massive screen--but up close the image seems to suffer from a bit too much compression. Otherwise, however, this is a decently satisfying high definition presentation. Easy on the eyes, if never exactly stunning. Although there are quite a few shots that looks noticeably soft, most of the film has a good sense of clarity, with resolved textures in closeups. Color is fairly strong too, with consistent skin tones, deep-enough blacks, and a light grading that gives a warm cast to most of the highlights. A serviceable, watchable image.


Roadie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Despite Jimmy's rock 'n' roll background, you're right not to expect an aggressive, room-rattling mix from this low-key mid-life-crisis drama. Sure, there are a few rock/metal tunes thrown into the mix, and they sound great--dynamic and expressive as the original recordings--but they almost never get to blast at full volume. This is a relatively quiet DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, one that focuses more on clearly understood dialogue than fat- bottomed guitar riffs. The rear channels don't get a whole lot of action, but they are used to add some depth to the music, along with putting out some light ambience from time to time. Like the picture quality, the audio gets the job done, and that's about all there is to say here. For those that need or want them, the disc comes with optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
