The Blue Max Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Blue Max is presented on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.36:1. This Fox CinemaScope picture looks ravishing on Blu-ray, and those who only have known the film through its broadcast iterations on previous (problematic) home video releases may well be stunned at the difference here. Colors are gorgeously vivid and accurate looking (take a gander at Peppard's eyes in several screenshots—if he couldn't give Paul Newman a run for his baby blue money, I don't know who could). (Especially notable in the color reproduction are the lush reds; they have neither the rust color that would indicate a brown tint nor a purplish edge which would indicate a push toward blue.) The elements were either pristine or lovingly restored, with no diminution of natural grain or artificial sharpening. There is heavier grain and attendant softness in some process shots, and some of the rear projection is now more obvious than it was before, but that's simply because this transfer is so luminously clear. Contrast and black levels are consistently strong throughout the film and this certainly ranks as one of the finest looking high definition masters Fox has licensed.


The Blue Max Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Blue Max features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which nicely repurposes the original four track mag soundtrack. If things aren't quite as bombastic as contemporary listeners might be used to, they often come close, with fantastic LFE recreating the thunderous explosions of early 20th century warfare. The buzz and rattle of early flight also fills the surrounds in several key sequences. Dialogue is always cleanly and clearly presented. But it's Jerry Goldsmith's majestic score which really benefits the most from this lossless audio. From the first descending fourth in the strings (which some may feel presages Goldsmith's appropriation of Alexander Courage's Star Trek theme in Goldsmith's own Star Trek work) through the gorgeously burnished brass work, the score (as sadly truncated as it is in the film) has never sounded this magnificent. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is extremely wide.
