Sixteen Candles

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

It's Samantha Baker's sweet sixteen birthday and no one in her family remembers the occasion. She's a typical teen, enduring creepy freshman, spoiled siblings, confused parents and the Big Blonde on campus who stands between her and the boy of her dreams.

For more about Sixteen Candles and the Sixteen Candles Blu-ray release, see Sixteen Candles Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Molly Ringwald, Justin Henry, Anthony Michael Hall, Gedde Watanabe, Blanche Baker, John Cusack

Sixteen Candles Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) presentation comes with a heavy Universal catalog title burden. Suffering from a noticeably filtered look, grain has largely been lifted out of the picture, leaving a smoother viewing experience with moments of slight ringing and aliasing. Fine detail isn't nearly as strong as it could be, leaving close-ups less impactful, while costuming lacks deep textures. There are occasional crush issues that render distances and darker outfits on the solid side, with evening adventures clotting unnecessarily. The colorful palette feels slightly dulled, though fabrics do manage to retain their natural vibrancy, while locations offer appropriately festive hues, showing stability. Skintones look on the bloodless side, though Ringwald's natural strawberry pop remains. The print shows only minor wear and tear. The BD isn't perfect, but what's here is definitely an upgrade over previous DVD presentations.


Sixteen Candles Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix doesn't possess much home theater firepower, but its modest design fits the buoyant mood of the picture (and its original mix) quite nicely. Surround are rarely engaged in full, tasked to maintain distances and the occasional soundtrack flare-up, showing some life without a consistent presence. Music keeps to a frontal position, sounding full and crisp while managing a soundtrack of hits and era-specific tunes, swelling up when the moment requires. Low-end also shows some alertness with fuller instrumentation. I noticed a few quivery highs on a few of the cuts, but that could be a source issue. Dialogue is satisfactory and comfortably chaotic, with verbal exchanges always easy to understand, even when locked into a busy group dynamic. Atmospherics are stable and expressive without much in the way of movement. Already a thin sonic experience to begin with, the track manages to create excitement and clarity where it counts the most.
