The Breakfast Club Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Breakfast Club arrives on Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. While sharpness in noticeably better than on previous home video releases, the source elements for this film still belie its less than blockbuster budget. This was one of A&M Films' first forays into co-production with a major studio (Universal), and there's a certain indie feeling to the whole production which unfortunately becomes a detriment to its video quality. Right off the bat there's noticeable telecine wobble throughout the opening credits, but perhaps more surprisingly, that wobble continues through several master shots in the film's opening moments. There are also a smattering of inartful edit jumps and splices, with moments of misframing. None of these issues can be attributed to the Blu-ray itself, but they will probably trouble the more persnickety viewers who may have expected some sort of major restoration for a release of this renown. On the whole, colors look very good to excellent, though nothing is overwhelmingly saturated. Grain is natural looking, giving The Breakfast Club an appealing texture. And while, as mentioned above, there is certainly an up-tick in sharpness (compare for instance the 480p version of the film included in the Hughes retrospective included as an extra), there's nothing here that screams "high definition." Fans of the film will probably be thrilled to have this film on Blu-ray and so will be more likely to overlook its video flaws, but those hoping for a digital restoration and something a bit more pristine are bound to be disappointed.


The Breakfast Club Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Considerably better, though with its own set of problems, is this film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The best part of this mix is with the music cues, which are nicely bombastic and fill the surrounds quite invitingly. The opening kick drum of Simple Minds' "Don't You Forget About Me" thunks nicely through the subwoofer and Jim Kerr's plaintive voice sounds excellent. Somewhat more problematic is the dialogue, especially in Judd Nelson's voiceover which open and close the film, which sounds strangely muffled and boxy. Otherwise, this is a solid presentation, though not very immersive. Onscreen dialogue (whether looped or not) is clear and precise, and underscore and source music cues sound great. This is a fairly talky film, with few if any opportunities for surround magic, so with that in mind, The Breakfast Club's soundfield, while limited, is excellently rendered.
