Silent Running

Silent Running Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A botanist has spent eight years aboard the space freighter "Valley Forge" preserving the only botanical specimens left from Earth under huge geodesic domes. When he receives orders to destroy the project and return home, he rebels and hijacks the freighter, killing his fellow crewmen, injuring himself, and plunging the craft into the gaseous rings of Saturn.

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

Starring: Bruce Dern, Cliff Potts, Ron Rifkin, Jesse Vint, Joseph Campanella (I)

Silent Running Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Douglas Trumbull's Silent Running arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The film was transferred and graded in HD resolution from an interpositive 35mm source element made in 1996 and supplied by NBC/Universal, USA. Further restoration work was completed at Deluxe 142, London. Picture issues, such as dirt, light scratches, and debris as well as warped, damaged, or unstable frames were removed or improved upon using a combination of HD-DVNR, Phoenix, and MTI systems."

This Blu-ray release makes it perfectly clear that Universal Studios could keep a lot of people happy if they treated their older films like Eureka Entertainment have treated Silent Running - put the best raw transfer you have on Blu-ray without denoising and then sharpening it beyond recognition. Things may not be perfect, but the film will look like film.

Detail and clarity are pleasing, especially during the darker sequences, which look blocky and murky on the R1 SDVD release. Some of the close-ups look a bit soft but not scrubbed up. A light layer of grain is present throughout the entire film and there are practically no traces of edge-enhancement affecting the integrity of the image (the only extremely mild sharpening I noticed during a few scenes is as seen on screencapture #10). Color reproduction is convincing - the warm blues, greens, brown, and blacks never look manipulated. Furthermore, I did not see any serious compression issues to report in this review. Blown through a digital projector, the image also remains tight around the edges while boasting pleasing fluidity. Finally, there are no large damage marks, scratches, or warps. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Silent Running Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track and Music & Effects DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The loseless audio track opens up the film rather well. Not only are some of the special audio effects better enhanced, but generally the sound is also notably crisper and clearer (the birds in the domes, for instance, are a lot easier to hear). Joan Baez's singing is also richer and better rounded. There are no problematic pops and cracks, or background hiss.
