The American President

 (1995)

The American President Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Comedy-drama about a widowed US president and a lobbyist who fall in love. It's all aboveboard, but "politics is perception" and sparks fly anyway.

For more about The American President and the The American President Blu-ray release, see the The American President Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The American President Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Warner's 2004 DVD release of The American President was not enhanced for 16:9 widescreen; I don't have definitive information about the 2008 re-release on DVD, but the film's fans have been looking forward to Blu-ray treatment so that Oscar winner John Seale's (The English Patient) widescreen Panavision cinematography can be seen in all its glory and production designer Lilly Kilvert's recreation of the White House can be seen in its full detail.

The image on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is generally good, with some concerns that place it a notch or two below the level of quality we've come to expect from Warner catalog releases. The image is clean and well-detailed, with deep blacks and a saturated palette of rich colors befitting the majesty of the nation's capital and the executive branch. There is no indication of detail filtering, and the film's grain structure is fine but still visible. Although Warner has used a BD-25, the lack of extras and the limited audio options allow the film to reside on the available digital real estate without compression issues.

The fly in the ointment is a small amount of artificial sharpening, visible in an occasional but slight edge halo. The haloing itself is sufficiently fleeting that most viewers probably won't notice it, but the presence of such sharpening lessens the film-like appearance of the transfer generally. Digital "enhancement" of this nature is a leftover from the DVD era, and its return in any transfer for Blu-ray is unwelcome. Possibly some colorist felt the need to "stabilize" this image from an era before the advent of digital intermediates, but if so more sharpening was applied than was needed to compensate for an issue in the raw scan. Maybe all those complaints on the internet about pre-DI films being "soft" or not sharp enough have done some damage after all.


The American President Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The American President was released with a 5.1 soundtrack, which is here reproduced in DTS-HD MA, but it is not a showy or elaborate mix. We get surround noises appropriate to various environments (e.g., the state dinner at which the President and Sydney have their first "date") and an occasional panning effect such as the President's helicopter flying in, but otherwise the surrounds are limited to supporting the front array. Dialogue is very clear, and the sprightly score by the versatile Marc Shaiman provides the right touch of storybook magic to the "happily ever after" proceedings.
