Roadie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Roadie is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.84:1. This is another nice looking high definition presentation from Shout!, which continues to mine the world for lesser remembered films and usually does rather well by them. Damage here is extremely minor, relegated mostly to almost minute white specks that dot the landscape from time to time. Color is very nicely saturated and natural looking and contrast is also strong and consistent. Detail pops very well in close-ups, though the film has a typically somewhat softer appearance redolent of its era. Fine grain is just that—fine, at least during the brightly lit daytime scenes. Some of the nighttime or darker interior sequences reveal heavier grain, but everything looks natural and filmic.


Roadie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Someone in the Quality Control chain for this disc better have their resumé updated and ready to send out. While Roadie advertises both a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix and a repurposed DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix, selecting the 5.1 mix brings up a track which my PS3 actually identified as Dolby Digital 2.0 which contains—nothing. That's right—zip, nada, zilch. The sound of silence. Well, you get the idea. How no one could have noticed this during the disc's production is frankly beyond me, but there you have it. It's especially sad since Roadie is filled with such wonderful music which obviously could have benefited from a surround mix. However, we're here to assess what is on the disc, not what isn't (even if it's advertised to be). The lossless 2.0 rendering is really nicely clear and clean, with excellent reproduction of the music and dialogue. No drop outs or other damage are in evidence. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is quite wide.
