Rudy

 (1993)

Rudy Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

All his life, people have told Rudy he's not good enough, not smart enough, not big enough. But nothing can stop his impossible dream of playing football for Notre Dame. From the time he was a young boy, Rudy is determined to join the Fighting Irish. But his blue-collar family only laughs at his ambitions - they know Rudy will follow his father and brother to the local steel mill. And, for four long years after high school, he does just that. But some dreams won't die, as Rudy proves when he goes to heroic, occasionally hilarious, lengths to win admission to Notre Dame. Once there, he becomes a walk-on player, serving as little more than a human tackling dummy against the startling players. Bloodied but unbeaten, Rudy wins the respect of legendary coach Ara Parseghian and the other Irish players, who give him one shot at gridiron glory. Based on a true story.

Rudy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Rudy lines up on Blu-ray with a 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. The results are acceptable, but won't create a sense of wonder among audiences, either. At the film's open during a snowy backyard pickup game between friends, the film is drab in its color palette but offers a very nice cinematic look. There is some grain over the image here and throughout, coming across as rather heavy at times, and the occasional speckle over the print is to be found as well. Still, there is practically no pop or depth to the image. Colors are lacking and not as vibrant as I expected, but some shots do truly shine, particularly bright, outdoor shots of the Notre Dame or Holy Cross campuses that feature plenty of glorious fall foliage in select scenes. There is a noticeable change in the look of the film during the second act when Rudy's dream is within his grasp. Colors become more lively; the dark, almost depressing general look of the film's first act transforms into a brighter and more vibrant one, certainly more cheerful and hopeful, representing the renewed faith on Rudy's part and a new vigor and energy in his life. For football fans, Notre Dame blue jerseys and golden helmets never looked better. As for problematic areas, there are but two that I noted. There is a hint of banding in a few shots, and black levels are moderately good at best. Rudy will not walk away with "transfer of the year," but the source material being what it is, there is little room to complain.


Rudy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Rudy enrolls on Blu-ray with a lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack that, like the video, is never flashy or fancy but gets the job done nicely nevertheless. After an excellent effect at the very beginning of the film as the sound of a collegiate band moves from rear to front and becomes progressively louder as it marches forward, the film jumps straight to a smoky, quiet, early morning Illinois steel town where we meet our characters. The scene is representative of the majority of the movie from an audio standpoint, with strong dialogue reproduction, minor ambience, and, eventually, the presence of the film's score playing nicely across the front soundstage. Although dialogue is the backbone of the film, and it sounds great, there is a wealth of wonderful experiences throughout the mix. A tragedy in chapter three that kills Rudy's friend Pete offers up a powerful, all-encompassing explosion with solid lows and an engaging surround presence. The soundstage later comes alive with some subtle and not-so-subtle ambience. Words echo in a nearly empty church in one scene, for example, and the crowd noise at the football games places us in the middle of Notre Dame Stadium later. The sounds of football are here, but are nowhere near as powerful as what we heard (and felt) in Gridiron Gang, for example. Bass never comes into play all that much in this track, especially compared to Gridiron Gang and other football films of more recent vintage, but this track holds its own and offers listeners an experience that is the perfect compliment to the look, tone, and emotional power of the film.
