Stripes

 (1981)

Stripes Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Thanks to a run of bad luck and go-nowhere jobs, John convinces Russell to join the army so they can get in shape, likening it to a health spa. Once in boot camp, wiseguy John tangles with his by-the-book Sgt. and becomes the unofficial leader for his platoon, made up mostly of other misfits and assorted losers. After somehow making it through graduation, they are given a special assignment but, thanks to John's romantic interest in a pretty MPO, the other men wind up behind the Iron Curtain until John, Russell, their dates and Sgt. Hulka make a daring rescue attempt in explosive style.

Stripes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Stripes isn't the best looking movie ever to grace the Blu-ray format, but Sony's 1080p transfer nevertheless appears faithful to the source, which is almost all anyone could ask. Though the image is a little soft and fuzzy in a few spots, the bulk is rather sharp, clear, nicely detailed, and accentuated by a fairly heavy layer of grain, intermixed with some sporadic and occasionally unsightly noise. Detail ranges from adequate to exemplary; the brick walls and scattered elements around Winger's apartment as seen early in the film aren't extraordinarily impressive, but fine detail on army uniforms later in the movie can be downright breathtaking. Clarity is strong enough in the film's third act to clearly see that the many Garand rifles used in drills and practice are replicas/fakes. Colors seems bit more alive once the action shifts away from the city and into the army camp; even the olive drab uniforms that are so prominent throughout the picture take on a wonderfully natural tone. Slight background blocking is evident in one or two scenes, but not to a terribly debilitating extent. This is a somewhat uneven transfer. It never looks bad, but it does look old in a few places, particularly early on before the action shifts to the army camp. There's a hint of dirt here and there, too, but for the most part this is a good looking catalogue transfer that just asks viewers to take a little bit of "meh" with a whole lot of good.


Stripes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Stripes enlists on Blu-ray with a Sony standard-issue DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Much like the video, it has its high and low points, but the good easily outweighs the bland. There are times, usually early in the movie, where things seem to get a bit shallow, where dialogue plays with a hint of detachment about it. It picks up considerably as the action moves forward, however. Music delivery is good, and Bernstein's theme music sounds great: it's rich, big, energetic, spacious, and clear. Surround support is evident in many spots, both in music support and in the delivery of both action and ambience. Light atmospherics aid in setting various scenes, and good, solid bass supports the rumbling of thunder and various explosions that occur throughout the movie. Missiles zip and artillery rounds zoom, both tearing paths through the soundstage in several scenes. It's certainly not a war move extraordinaire type of soundtrack, but for an aging Comedy the material sounds quite good. Dialogue remains firm and center-focused through most of the picture, though as noted it does tend to struggle just a hair out of the gate. Overall, this is a pretty solid audio offering from Sony.
