Sometimes a Great Notion

 (1970)

Sometimes a Great Notion Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Paul Newman makes his directorial debut in this sweeping saga. Based on the best-selling novel from author Ken Kesey (ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST), the story focuses on a two-fisted Oregon family that busks their close-knit timber community to deliver a shipment of logs in defiance of a strike. In the process, one man is killed, the family patriarch (Henry Fonda) is injured, and the eldest son (Paul Newman) almost loses his wife (Lee Remick) to his half brother (Michael Sarrazin). Filled with complex characters and issues that still resonate today, SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION is an intense and riveting portrait of life set against the rugged backdrop of logging.

For more about Sometimes a Great Notion and the Sometimes a Great Notion Blu-ray release, see Sometimes a Great Notion Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Paul Newman, Henry Fonda, Lee Remick, Michael Sarrazin, Richard Jaeckel, Cliff Potts

Sometimes a Great Notion Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Paul Newman's Sometimes a Great Notion arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout Factory.

The high-definition transfer is quite inconsistent. It has been struck from a dated source and more often than not it clearly shows. Generally speaking, detail and clarity range from decent to pleasing, but traces of light to moderate sharpening corrections are visible throughout the entire film. Naturally, during close-ups and larger panoramic shots depth isn't pleasing (see screencapture #9). Light electronic noise also sneaks in from time to time (see screencapture #4). Some grain has been retained, but it is almost always mixed with the aforementioned electronic noise as well as some artifacts. Sharpness levels have also been slightly elevated. Color reproduction is at times adequate, but saturation and stability are not impressive. Some light edge flicker is noticeable. All in all, there is definitely quite a bit of room for serious improvements in practically all of the key areas we typically address in these reviews. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Sometimes a Great Notion Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Shout Factory have provided optional yellow English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The lossless track opens up the film in all the right places quite well. Generally speaking, there is good depth and even some decent dynamic movement. The dialog is always crisp, stable, and easy to follow. There is no heavy background hiss. Also, there are no audio dropouts and distortions to report in this review.
