Sideways

 (2004)

Sideways Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this must-own Blu-ray release

A wine tasting road trip to salute Jack's final days as a bachelor careens woefully sideways as he and Miles hit the gas en route to mid-life crises. The comically mismatched pair, who share little more than their history and a heady blend of failed potential and fading youth, soon find themselves drowning in wine and women. Emerging from a haze of pinot noir, wistful yearnings and trepidation about the future, the two inevitably collide with reality.

For more about Sideways and the Sideways Blu-ray release, see Sideways Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Sideways Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Intentionally shot in moderately soft focus while featuring a somewhat bland color palette, Sideways has never been a particularly lush-looking film. Given the film's extremely low budget (by Hollywood standards) it should come as no surprise that Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael shot the film as simply and naturally as possible. There's no CGI, camera trickery or telecine tweaking in Sideways and the entire films looks natural and unadulterated.

Colors are generally muted with the occasional splash of bright primaries. Skin-tones are a bit washed out and black levels can, at times, appear slightly crushed. Much of the film takes place indoors and at night; the film's use of natural light renders these scenes particularly dark and black levels excel in these instances. Digital compression issues are, thankfully, absent from this Blu-ray. I didn't detect any edge enhancement, macroblocking, ringing or noise; fortunately the film's fine grain structure is apparent throughout. In comparing this Blu-ray release to the previous DVD releases of Sideways, it is clear that colors, detail and overall clarity are greatly improved. The best thing about this Blu-ray edition is that Sideways finally looks like it was shot on film. The DVD version is far too smooth and its limited resolution eliminates most of the grain that adds essential texture to the look of the film. For those that appreciate the appearance of actual film, Sideways is sure to please. Recommended!


Sideways Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As the catalog of available Blu-ray films continues to increase, films featuring fewer explosions and less surround action will become more commonplace. Fans of explosive soundtracks have been spoiled up to this point as studios have concentrated on demo material as a priority in their Blu-ray release schedules. While there will always be plenty of action films to satisfy that market, there are far more films like Sideways; films that focus on dialogue over machine guns and quiet moments over momentary quiet.

Sideways is all about dialogue. It's a comedy / drama and no one has to fire a gun or ride in a helicopter during the duration of the film. As such, what this Blu-ray will provide is a perfectly realized 5.1 DTS HD-Master Audio soundtrack that never wavers in its attention to making sure that every line is clearly heard. Those expecting anything else will be disappointed as Sideways sounds like it is supposed to.
