Swingers

 (1996)

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

An ensemble comedy about five guys, all in their twenties, all coping with the mysteries of life and women, and is set in the back streets and sometimes hidden clubs of Hollywood. It's a story told in the language of the "cocktail nation," a growing twentysomething retro-Swing dance movement that's taken Hollywood by storm and is beginning to sweep the nation. Mike is down in the dumps because he left his girlfriend behind in New York when he came to Hollywood to seek his acting fortune. Instead, he's found loneliness and the blues. Now, after six months of dealing with Mike, his buddy Trent and the other swingers have had enough. It's time to bring Mike back to life

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

Swingers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Liman shot Swingers himself, and he invests the film with a quasi-verité look that uses a lot of low lighting and handheld cameras, but overall Swingers's AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1 looks reasonably sharp, if never overwhelmingly brilliant. Black levels are decent, though crush is readily apparent in many of the dimly lit night scenes and many of the interior club sequences. Contrast is generally very good, though on the opposite side of the spectrum, some of the intensely lit outdoor scenes (notably the boys' roadside moment as they leave Vegas) are just slightly overblown, leading to a bit of softness. While Swingers is certainly not going to jump to anyone's Top 10 list in terms of image quality, the Blu-ray offers a noticeable uptick in clarity and precision, and especially with regard to color and saturation. No egregious DNR has been applied to this release, so grain structure remains intact. The trade off is that grain structure can also contribute to a softer looking image than some might prefer.


Swingers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Okay, I'm going to put on my fusspot musicological hat for a moment (I knew that double major in English and Music was going to pay off someday): the so-called "Swing" revival which Swingers supposedly celebrates is not Swing Music. Swing Music is big band music from the 1930's and 1940's, those jumpin' jivin' tunes from the likes of Goodman, Miller, Dorsey and others of their ilk. Swingers' lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is filled with what I would call the ersatz "swing-esque" music of Rat Packers like Dean Martin. These are simply pop vocal tunes from the 1950's and 1960's dressed up with some admittedly wonderful orchestrations and arrangements from the likes of Don Costa or Nelson Riddle, and most would be more properly labeled "lounge", which at least would indicate the sort of faux hipness factor that is played out in the hilarious scene with the older lounge duo performing "Stayin' Alive" in the film itself. When you also factor in more contemporary pop-rock tunes like "Magic Man" by Heart, Swingers' fans' claims that the film somehow propelled a neo-Swing renaissance seem at the best fanciful. All of this said (and I apologize for the mini-rant), Swingers' lossless stereo track sounds fine, even if it's incredibly narrow. There's really not even a lot of stereo activity here, but fidelity is strong, the source cues sound great, and dialogue is clear and crisp and always easy to hear. I personally would have loved a surround mix, not just for the score's purposes, but for the many party-casino-club sequences, where the sonic activity just sounds a tad crowded at times.
