Surfer, Dude

 (2008)

Surfer, Dude Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Longboarding soul-surfer Steve Addington returns to Malibu for the summer to find his cool hometown vibe corrupted. New sponsorship demands Addington to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Unwilling to participate in this new digital-reality, he chooses to spend his summer surfing his home break. But in a twist-of-fate, the waves go flat and stay flat. Out of money, his expense-accounts canceled, and betrayed by his buddies, Addington is backed into a harsh corner. He must endure the insanity that comes with no waves or give into "the Man" and his new, reality-altering machines. Aided by his manager, his mentor, his guardian angel and his summer lover, Addington has a chance of keeping his cool, but it's not going to be easy. The dude needs a wave, and there's never been a drought like this.

For more about Surfer, Dude and the Surfer, Dude Blu-ray release, see Surfer, Dude Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Alexie Gilmore, Jeffrey Nordling, Woody Harrelson, Scott Glenn, P.J. Byrne

Surfer, Dude Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Surfer, Dude crashes onto Blu-ray with a nice looking 1080p transfer framed inside a 1.85:1 window. The first thing viewers will notice is the grainy and somewhat blown out look the film employs. Colors never appear overly vivid despite the bright, hot look, coming off as more natural in appearance. Despite offering a fairly nice film-like transfer, there is little to become excited about with this one. Still, it definitely offers fine detail and clarity, besting even the finest in standard definition programming. The various scruffy, long-haired surfers look like they just got off an all-day stay on the beach; all the fine detail from facial hair to their golden locks transfer nicely to high definition, and while flesh tones veer towards the orange and golden side of the scale, it's to be expected of a film about the California surfing scene. Detail in clothing is nice, too; a woven hat worn by Woody Harrelson's character offers realistic texture, pleasing colors, and rich detail. Background details are also sharp and clear. Much of the background detail, like walls covered in graffiti, for example, are infinitely clear (and mostly readable, as the case may be). Surfer, Dude offers another quality high definition video transfer from Starz.


Surfer, Dude Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Surfer, Dude is presented on Blu-ray with a lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack. This mix features a nice, lively presence when playing back various music; the opening beats playing over the credits work the front speakers nicely, with heavy, almost tribal, beats emanating from the front left and right channels, with solid support from the subwoofer and the back channels. No matter the music, from the aforementioned percussion-heavy beats to a hard-rock song heard during a virtual reality demonstration, the soundtrack bursts forth with nice vigor and clarity. However, the track doesn't offer much in the way of a rear-channel presence, save for a bit of carry over when music plays. The front speakers handle most of he soundtrack's ambience, leaving listeners feeling detached and hardly engulfed during the experience. Nevertheless, it's sufficient enough, and this dialogue-heavy film never falters in conveying each syllable efficiently through the center channel. While nothing to get too excited about, Surfer, Dude does feature a suitable and clear listen on Blu-ray.
