The Bonfire of the Vanities

 (1990)

The Bonfire of the Vanities Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

The story of New York City bond salesman Sherman McCoy, who is charged with the hit-and-run of a young black man during an unexpected foray into the South Bronx while driving his mistress home from the airport.

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

Starring: Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith, Kim Cattrall, Saul Rubinek, Morgan Freeman
Director: Brian De Palma

The Bonfire of the Vanities Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Reuniting with De Palma for the first time since Blow Out, cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond brought his distinctive sense of texture and color to diverse (exceptionally diverse) settings and landscapes where The Bonfire of the Vanities plays out its farces and tragedies. If nothing else, the film looked good. Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded transfer has some minor problems but is overall an acceptable presentation, although it will no doubt be subject to the usual complaints about softness and lack of sharpness from eyes conditioned by digital acquisition and post-production.

(Necessary disclaimer: I'm not saying that the products of such digital means are sharper, but they have inevitably set the subjective standard for what looks "sharp". Like people who have become accustomed to uncalibrated TVs and then have to adjust to a less contrast-y but more detailed image after calibration, viewers used to today's digital standards may not immediately recognize just how detailed the image on a Blu-ray like Bonfire really is.)

Detail is good, colors are rich and varied without oversaturation, and blacks are deep without crushing. The lack of extras has allowed this 125-minute movie to reside on a BD-25 without major issues. The Blu-ray image's only noteworthy issue is recurring horizontal instability caused by gate weave, and although the issue is minor, it was sufficiently frequent to attract my attention.


The Bonfire of the Vanities Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

According to IMDb, Bonfire received a 70mm release with a 6-track mix, but there is no sign of it here. Instead, we have the film's standard stereo surround track formatted in lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0. It's perfectly serviceable, in the sense that the dialogue is clear, there's enough ambiance with an appropriate decoding system to convey a sense of environment (e.g., in the opening tracking shot, when Peter Fallow moves from one location to another), and Dave Grusin's inappropriately jaunty score is adequately reproduced. What the track can't do is improve the movie, because the sound design is entirely consistent with the overall flawed conception.
