The Fly

 (1986)

Seth Brundle, a brilliant but eccentric scientist attempts to woo investigative journalist Veronica Quaife by offering her a scoop on his latest research in the field of matter transportation, which against all the expectations of the scientific establishment have proved successful. Up to a point. Brundle thinks he has ironed out the last problem when he successfully transports a living creature, but when he attempts to teleport himself a fly enters one of the transmission booths, and Brundle finds he is a changed man.

For more about The Fly and the The Fly Blu-ray release, see the The Fly Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis, John Getz, Joy Boushel, Les Carlson, David Cronenberg

The Fly Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Fly is presented in 1080p 1.85 video encoded in MPEG4 AVC. The film itself is fairly clean, with no major damage or defects. Grain is present, but is natural and not too obtrusive except in the few optical effects where the teleporter is used. Some may mistake it for video noise. Most of the film takes place inside Brundle's loft, where it is rather dark: it's here where the grain is most apparent. Shadow detail is very good. The few exterior and daytime shots are much cleaner. Colors are saturated, with natural fleshtones. Blood is a proper bright red. My only real complaint is that the film is rather flat looking, the age of the film non-withstanding. The Blu-ray of Close Encounters of the Third Kind proves older films can have as much depth as recent theatrical releases. However, it is still a good upgrade over the DVD version, and even looks better than the version recently shown on HD cable. Short of a major Lowry-style restoration, I don't see how much more the film can be improved.



The Fly Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The film is encoded in 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio lossless format. It is not a spectacular soundtrack, with most envelopment going to Howard Shore's somewhat overwrought, 1950's horror genre styled score. The sound is clean, there is no major distortion and dialogue is easy to understand. This is especially important because Jeff Goldblum's Seth character is very quiet and soft spoken. As far as surround sound, aficionados searching for a demo disc may want to look elsewhere. Keep in mind that in 1986 films were still being released in either mono or Dolby Stereo sound, and there were very few 70MM discrete 6-track releases. The book Widescreen Movies lists The Fly as having 70MM prints made, but I cannot find confirmation of that from Dolby. The intimacy of the story does not call for a showy surround track anyway, and the director's intent comes across well in this track.

The soundtrack is also presented in Dolby Digital (DD) 2.0 @ 224 kbps in Spanish and French. Not listed on the box, the disc also contains a 5.1 Dolby Digital (DD) track @ 448 kbps. Those of you who wish to play the disc at night or on small systems will appreciate this.
