Shall We Dance?

 (2004)

Shall We Dance? Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

For longer than he can remember, John Clark (Richard Gere) has led a dull existence... and even with a successful career, charming wife (Susan Sarandon) and loving family, he still feels something is missing as he makes his mind-numbing commute through the city each day. But one night, on his evening ride home, he looks up to see a beautiful woman (Jennifer Lopez) staring through the window of a dance studio. Haunted by her gaze, John impulsively jumps off the train and signs up for dance lessons... and his whole life begins to change. Now, he's entering a world he never imagined - the colorful world of competitive ballroom dancing. It's a place filled with grand passions, bitter rivalries, great friends and strange couples and it's about to reignite the excitement in John's life - not to mention the lives of his family, dance instructors and fellow classmates - in ways he's never dreamed.

Shall We Dance? Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

This 1080p high-definition Blu-ray transfer of Shall We Dance definitely shows that it has been busy dancing, because it is definitely no slouch (see the movie to understand). Presented at 1.85:1, the movie looks very good, sporting an above average, pleasing look that really shines on Blu-ray. While not the best transfer on the market by an means, Shall We Dance? ranks right up there with the "better" transfers, far surpassing many and looking at least somewhat better than most. A major accomplishment, this is nothing to sneeze at and even for a still-young catalogue title, the results are impressive. Flesh tones can look a bit on the reddish side on occasion, this being the only fault (and certainly not a major one) I found with the disc. The movie is generally brimming with rich, vibrant colors, notably red, and they all pass the Blu-ray test with, well, flying (or maybe in this case, better said "dancing") colors. Detail is natural and obvious, everything looking as it should, as one would expect to see on the format that more closely represents real life in the home than anything we've seen before. For example, clothing is immaculately rendered, and every single bead of sweat on the dancers faces is clearly and easily seen. Black levels are deep and rich, definitely proving to be one of the disc's strong points. The movie retains a natural film-like look to it, and there is very little in the way of noticeable grain. While there is a bit of depth about the image, it does not immediately and regularly "jump" off the screen, though it clearly looks as if it wants to on many occasions. Shall We Dance may not be absolute top-tier quality, but it approaches that level, and the image should easily please fans of the movie and Blu-ray owners in general.


Shall We Dance? Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Gliding across the soundstage between "good" and "average" is the PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack found on this disc. Subdued, reserved, and adequate are the three words that immediately come to mind when trying to describe this soundtrack. Dialogue is well-placed, centered, natural and clean, and is never lost or jumbled under even the more upbeat music tracks heard at times during the movie. Some of the more vivacious sequences, such as those taking place in a bar or at "Dr. Dance," are loud, making good use of the entirety of the sound field, but it sounds somewhat muffled and lacking in clarity. For the most part, other than those more rambunctious sequences, surrounds and the subwoofer are rarely employed, but the movie doesn't really cry out for them to join the party, either. There is little need for discrete effects, and the track on the whole is very basic one, even for a movie about dancing to various forms of music. Generally, I felt that what I was hearing was what was intended to be heard, no one element overplayed or under performed, just the right mix for a movie of this style and caliber. It gets the job done, but leaves no real lasting impression, either.
