Semi-Pro

 (2008)

Semi-Pro Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Semi-Pro is an outrageous comedy set in 1976 against the backdrop of the maverick ABA — a fast-paced, wild and crazy basketball league that rivaled the NBA and made a name for itself with innovations like the three-point shot and slam dunk contest. Will Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, a one-hit wonder who used the profits from the success of his chart-topping song "Love Me Sexy" to achieve his dream of owning a basketball team. But Moon's franchise, the Flint Michigan Tropics, is the worst team in the league and in danger of folding when the ABA announces its plans to merge with the NBA. If they want to survive, Jackie and the Tropics must now do the seemingly impossible — win.

For more about Semi-Pro and the Semi-Pro Blu-ray release, see Semi-Pro Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, André Benjamin, Maura Tierney, Andrew Daly, Will Arnett

Semi-Pro Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5


New Line's Semi Pro Blu-ray Disc comes as a two disc edition with the movie having a disc to itself. The Super 35 photography is presented in 1080p high bit VC-1 video of 2.35 aspect ratio. This is another transfer that looks fine enough thrown onto a Constant Image Height scope screen. Grainy throughout most of the movie, the cinematography brings the 70's looks of glittering dense colors almost to a fine art. The basketball game sections seem to been purposely given that look of pushed Kodacolor ASA 400 negative film used by sports photographers at the time, as seen in magazines like Sports Illustrated and Modern Photography. That's one of the reasons I wound up being sucked into the photography, because as I watched the 70's game scenes they looked as if the grainy photographs of that era, with their brownish ASA 400 flesh tones set against contrasty uniform whites, had suddenly come to life, expanded into a widescreen shape, and turned into motion. People that don't like grain might not like the authentic look, but it surely brings in the 70's sport to the screen making the movie more realistic, and accurately transporting you where you should be. Instead of how out of place a film about the sport in the 70's would have looked if it was photographed digitally clean into a modern look like it was shot today. Maybe the way it looks will not resonate as much to people that didn't live through it all, but for me it was a great authentic touch.





The wide Scope framing is used for good effect, and is great for all that horizontally running basketball action in a way that I think 16:9 can't even touch. (After watching the 2.35 movie, the 4:3 clips on the supplements are almost painful). Close ups have facial detail, sometimes maybe too much in the case of Will Ferrell, which is great, and even with all the action going on I didn't notice any artifacts, which I'm sure the high bit rates used ensured properly. In fact at some point I stopped being mindful of the transfer as it seemed fine, and all I did after that was watch and enjoy the movie.


Semi-Pro Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5


As customary with New Line releases the Semi-Pro Blu-ray comes with DTS HD MA 7.1 Lossless sound. It has a couple of directional surround sequences, and the 70's music, including the new 70's hit Love Me Sexy, sung by Jackie Moon and produced by Nile Rodgers, sound from very good to excellent considering their vintage sound. During the games you get crowd effects and the bouncing dribble of the ball, while main dialogue is reproduced cleanly and you can understand every nuance, specially good for the sport commentators running throughout the film. Not an spectacular mix in design for this kind of film, which makes sense as it's based on real life. DTS MA tracks always sound effortless. No complaints there. The disc also has English SDH subtitles and espańol ones
