Starman

 (1984)

Starman Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

An alien's ship crashes on Earth, and, to avoid detection, he transforms himself into a physical replica of the deceased husband of a young woman, whose house is the first he comes upon in the woods. He then must assuage her fears, learn how to adjust to his human form, and use her help to get to the Arizona crater where the mother ship awaits him. Things get complicated when the two fall in love and the alien is pursued by U.S. government agents attempting to capture him.

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

Starman Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Starman arrives on Blu-ray with a sound 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer. As is the norm with most Sony titles, Starman features a thick layer of grain and contains no trace of artificial smoothing or digital manipulation. Blacks are fairly deep throughout but tend to drown out some background detail. General detail ranks somewhere between "average" and "good" but never disappoints when viewed in the context of an aging catalogue title from the mid-1980s. Human faces don't exactly revel in the finest of detail, but appropriately up-close shots showcase sufficient amounts of information. After a fairly dark opening act, the following day on the road and many subsequent scenes throughout the movie look great; the image appears consistently sharp in the daylight scenes. Detail increases somewhat, particularly the desert terrain as seen in the film's final act, and colors appear slightly more dynamic when given the chance to shine in natural light. Starman's Blu-ray release isn't going to earn the distinction as the finest catalogue transfer of 2009, but it's another well-above-average effort from Sony.


Starman Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Starman descends onto Blu-ray with an adequate Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. As the film begins, Voyager II streaks across the sky and into the atmosphere of an alien planet, accompanied by a deep, rumbling low end that's not going to shatter an eardrum but does more than adequately convey the intended effect. The return craft, too, flies through the sky with a nice whooshing effect that spreads across the entire soundstage. Background information is superb, too; chatter and the sounds of clunky 1980s computers, ringing telephones, and other niceties fill the soundstage in several scenes, creating a fairly realistic audible atmosphere. The presentation of the score never disappoints as it is delivered with the utmost clarity across the front. Dialogue reproduction never falters. Like the video presentation, Starman's lossless soundtrack isn't the end-all, be-all of catalogue Blu-ray releases, but it's borderline fantastic in its own right.
