Stand By Me Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Stand By Me's 1080p transfer is solid, all things considered. The film's age is evident, and while the source is in relatively good shape, the picture simply lacks the polish, vibrancy, and absolute crispness of the best new releases. Still, fans should be quite pleased with Sony's efforts. Despite some wobble/jitter effects evident in the opening title sequence, the image impresses a great deal right out of the gate. This is a stable image that's surprisingly sharp in most places -- a hint of fuzziness and a touch of softness does creep in from time to time -- and nicely detailed, too. The transfer handles wooded areas and foliage quite nicely; groups of leaves both near frame and distant alike rarely appear clumpy or indistinct. The image also does well to capture small facial details, pick up the texture of a well-loved Yankees ball cap, and reveal the fine lines in Chris's dirty white T-shirt. Colors are lively and accurate, with natural greens really sparkling throughout. A bit of grain is retained over the image, but so too is a sprinkling of unwanted speckles. Blacks leave a bit to be desired, with nighttime shots showing a bit of crush, but flesh tones appear accurately reproduced. It's not a stunner of a transfer in the traditional sense, but Stand By Me really benefits from the 1080p treatment; most fans familiar with the movie will be ecstatic with the overall look and feel of Sony's latest catalogue effort.


Stand By Me Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Stand By Me arrives on Blu-ray with both a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack and the picture's original mono presentation. The 5.1 mix offers a richer and somewhat more clear and accurate presentation. Despite the extra available space, the lossless offering doesn't stray too far from the original source. This is a naturally reserved track built primarily on dialogue and music; the former is consistently accurate and center-focused, while the latter really shines thanks to the lossless boost. The period songs enjoy a greater clarity and crispness, a bit of a heftier and natural feel that gives the track some much-needed body. Still, most sound effects just come up lacking; a few .45 pistol shots play more as a muffled bang than a tight, loud crack, while even the raw power and energy of passing trains is generally met with minimal authority and a cramped, unfocused feel. Surrounds pick up a few random outdoor atmospherics and crowd chants during the fictitious pie eating contest sequence, but are otherwise left without much to do. The track isn't a disappointment, but it's not a revelation, either; the lossless track adds some space and clarity, but this is generally a routine, uninspired sort of listen.
