The Art of Getting By Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

The Art of Getting By Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

20th Century Fox has brought The Art of Getting By to Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that delivers exactly what you expect from a fairly low-budget independent drama—an image that's not quite as slick and polished as its top-tier brethren, but still clean and colorful. Unlike a lot of indie movies these days, Getting By was actually shot on 35mm, which gives the picture a warm, naturally filmic quality. The grain structure is thin and unobtrusive, and hasn't been touched by digital noise reduction or edge enhancement. The level of clarity is acceptable, with fine high definition detail visible in the actors' faces and clothing, but there are many longer shots that simply look out of focus. Color is satisfying, with a slightly warm cast, healthy skin tones, and a palette of rich neutral colors. Black levels are adequately deep and contrast is punchy without looking overpushed. Grain and noise spike a bit during darker scenes, but never drastically, and there are no other compression or encode issues. This is an all-around okay-looking disc, far from impressive, but far more impressive than the film itself.


The Art of Getting By Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Art of Getting By features Fox's standard-issue lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and the mix is typical for this kind of set- in-the-big-city drama/comedy. For most scenes, dialogue is the focus—it's always presented cleanly and clearly from the front channels—with a light backdrop of quiet environmental ambience in the rear speakers, from traffic noise and party chatter to the usual clamor of high school classrooms. The surrounds also help fill out Alec Puro's score and the various soundtrack songs—like that precious cover of "Turn the Clock Around"—and the music has plenty of depth and presence. The only time the track really gets to bump is when the kids somehow gain entrance to a 21+ nightclub and dance the night away to a thumping kick drum. The disc also includes a Dolby Digital 5.1 descriptive audio track, along with optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles.
