Spaceballs

 (1987)

Spaceballs Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In this spoof of 'STAR WARS' and a handful of other sci-fi flicks from the 1970s and '80s, space-bum-for-hire Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-dog/half-man sidekick, Barf (John Candy), must rescue a spoiled Druish princess (Daphne Zuniga) from the evil Lord Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) in time to pay off Pizza the Hut. With 'Spaceballs', director Mel Brooks is at it again, this time with a science-fiction parody with all the blue-screen special effects and weird makeup (though in this film, things are always slightly off-kilter and unpolished). Here, maverick space travelers set out to save the planet Druidia, which is being harassed by the Spaceballs, a sinister group attempting to pilfer Druidia's air resources. Among the many gags and jokes is a hilarious parody of a classic scene from 'Alien'. Mel Brooks himself makes one of his funniest acting appearances as Yogurt, a send-up of 'The Empire Strikes Back's Yoda.

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

Spaceballs Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Spaceballs lands on Blu-ray with a marvelous 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Though appearing just the slightest bit dim, the transfer nevertheless dazzles in most every area. Colors appear rather strong throughout, particularly the brighter hues as witnessed in the scenes taking place on Druidia. Even in the other primary locales, all of which feature their own unique colors schemes -- brown and tan dominate the interior of the Winnebago; steely grays are found predominantly inside Spaceball One; shadowy, muted browns make up much of Yogurt's underground lair -- all manage to impress greatly on this Blu-ray release. The higher resolution also greatly improves upon the detail seen throughout. Whether the wear on Lone Starr's Indiana Jones-esque leather jacket or the revelation of some of the imperfections on the set -- scratches, dents, and mediocre paint jobs -- the 1080p transfer allows audiences to see Spaceballs as it was meant to be seen. The transfer also allows for easier recognition of some of the film's more subtle background information that might have been missed in previous releases, for instance a line of Rocky VHS boxes on a lower shelf of the Mr. Rental station aboard Spaceball One. Special effects shots appear noticeably rougher than any other aspect of the film, with a bit more in the way of grain and containing the majority of the scratches, pops, and speckles. Still, the appearance of such anomalies is generally minimal and hardly distracting. Outside the effects shots, the transfer is generally clean and film grain is never overbearing. Also sporting adequate blacks and flesh tones, Spaceballs on Blu-ray looks fantastic for home viewing, better than even the cast and crew could have imagined when viewing the "instant cassette" of the film on the bridge of Spaceball One.


Spaceballs Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Boasting a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, this Blu-ray release of Spaceballs betters its home video predecessors considerably. No matter what the soundtrack has to offer, the lossless mix handles it expertly. The upbeat track that accompanies the opening scrolling text dazzles across the entire range, playing clearly and cleanly as it engulfs the soundstage, and is equalled in presence by the menacing, Jaws-like track that plays over the opening shot of a rumbling Spaceball One as it slowly maneuvers through space. Throughout the film, music plays with a clarity that dazzles in every instance, and its presence may be enjoyed throughout the entire soundstage. The rear channels come alive with regularity, both in support of the music and offering plenty of information during action sequences. Whether echoing voices, organ music at Princes Vespa's wedding ceremony, Bon Jovi's "Raise Your Hands" as heard during the introductions of Barf and Lone Starr, or laser blasts during a shootout in the final act, the back channels certainly make their presence known and provide great atmosphere and a sense of immersion into the Spaceballs experience. Complimented by crystal-clear dialogue reproduction, Spaceballs soars with a wonderful soundtrack that surpasses all expectations.
