Strictly Ballroom

 (1992)

Strictly Ballroom Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Scott Hastings is a champion caliber ballroom dancer, but much to the chagrin of the Australian ballroom dance community, Scott believes in dancing "his own steps". Fran is a beginning dancer and a bit of an ugly duckly who has the audacity to ask to be Scott's partner after his unorthodox style causes his regular partner to dance out of his life. Together, these two misfits try to win the Australian Pan Pacific Championships and show the Ballroom Confederation that they are wrong when they say, "there are no new steps!"

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

Starring: Paul Mercurio, Tara Morice, Bill Hunter, Gia Carides, Barry Otto
Director: Baz Luhrmann

Strictly Ballroom Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Strictly Ballroom is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is a strangely schizophrenic looking high definition presentation that can be at least relatively sharp at one moment and then seem rather fuzzily soft the next. Colors and saturation are similarly variable, at time quite robust and at other looking really pallid. Contrast follows in this weirdly inconsistent tradition, with some scenes (ironically a lot of the dimly lit interior moments) offering great shadow detail while others have an overblown look that robs the image of fine detail. My hunch is some at least moderate noise reduction has been applied to this release. While grain is still more than evident, some of the extreme close-ups have a just slight waxy look about them which may belie such digital tweaking. On the whole, while this isn't a stellar release by any stretch, it's certainly passable and at least in sporadic moments quite good.


Strictly Ballroom Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Strictly Ballroom's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix reserves its surround activity almost exclusively to the music and crowd sounds in the dance competitions, leaving the rest of the mix rather securely anchored in the front channels. Fidelity is excellent, with dialogue and score presented very cleanly and clearly. Dynamic range is somewhat limited but has a few spikes in the dance competition sequences.
