Romy and Michele's High School Reunion Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Don't be concerned by the soft, somewhat mushy appearance of the establishing shot behind the latter part of the credits that zooms over the Pacific into Venice, California, until it enters the window of Romy and Michele's apartment where they're watching Pretty Woman. The film was made during the industry's period of overlap between analog and digital technologies, when digital compositing was still reserved for big budget films. Both the credits and the transition from exterior to interior of the apartment are opticals, which degrade the visual quality. As soon as the shot ends, the quality improves noticeably, and it remains generally consistent for the rest of the film.

The cinematographer, Reynaldo Villalobos, is a veteran DP with credits that go back to Eighties classics like Urban Cowboy and Risky Business and forward to Breaking Bad. His delicate lighting contrasting the two distinct periods of Romy and Michele is capably reproduced on Disney's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. This is a soft but fine-grained and detailed image that doesn't appear to have been digitally reduced or artificially sharpened. The softness of the image is essential both to the frequently pastel palette and to the make-up that allows Kudrow and Sorvino to play much younger than they are. Other make-up effects that I'll leave for the viewer to discover also benefit from lighting that softens the edges and surfaces. Black levels are good enough to create the appropriate shadows for Justin Theroux's mysterious Cowboy character, and contrast never gets so strong that the Southwestern sun blows out details.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of Romy and Michele's video is that Disney has sprung for a BD-50, even though the disc image is only slightly larger than 27G. Another publisher might have tried additional compression for this 92-minute film, thereby risking artifacts in some of its trickier sequences. It's just too bad the additional space wasn't used for extras.


Romy and Michele's High School Reunion Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The prom and reunion scenes are the most obvious beneficiaries of rear channel activity on Romy and Michele's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, but the real glory of the track is the extensive array of Eighties pop standards, which are delivered with a clarity and presence that underline their nostalgia value both for Romy and Michele and for anyone else who has a soft spot for the original era of MTV. A partial list: "She Blinded Me with Science" by Thomas Dolby; "Dance Hall Days" by Wang Chung; "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins; "Whip It" by Devo; "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors; "Venus" by Bananarama; "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" by Belinda Carlisle; "Don't Get Me Wrong" by The Pretenders; "Addicted to Love" by Robert Palmer; "Our Lips Are Sealed" by The Go-Gos; "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club; and occupying a very special place in both the story and the film, "Time After Time" by Cindy Lauper.

Steve Bartek and James Newton Howard provided incidental underscoring that blends remarkably well with these selections, which sound like they came from a greatest hits album pitched on a late night TV infomercial. As good as it sounds, none of the music interferes with the intelligibility of the film's loopy but inspired dialogue.
