The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

MGM's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is by no means perfect, and it pales in comparison to Mondo's Italian release of the film, but for U.S. viewers, this is the best we're going to get until someone ponies up the cash for a new remaster. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly rides off through the desert in dusty Technicolor hues, with the pale blue sky looming overhead. Black levels are mostly strong, giving the film a brawny dimensional presence, and there only a few scenes that look mildly washed out or crushed. MGM's transfer, which is based off a 2002 restoration, is not nearly as crisp as Mondo's, but the stubble on leathery faces is rendered fairly clearly, and textures, like cloth, show fine detail, all without the telltale signs of edge-enhancement. I should note though, that in several of the close-ups, the actors seem to step a bit too close to the lens and the focus becomes uncharacteristically soft. Additionally, some of Leone's staple wide shots also have a mild fuzziness. As The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is over forty years old, the print does show some expected wear and tear. White specks dot the screen fairly frequently, two or three hairs get stuck on the print, and at the 1:29:39 mark some strange yellow stains mar the image for several seconds. The thin, nearly unnoticeable layer of grain also testifies to some post-production tweaking, mostly in the form of DNR, but the scrubbing isn't as egregious here as it is in some other waxier, more smeary titles, like Patton, for instance, or The Sixth Sense. Still, if any DNR is a deal-breaker for you, you might want to sit this one out. Here's to hoping that MGM acquires Mondo's more-pristine transfer sometime in the near future and brings it stateside.


The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

While the film's visual presentation won me over at first glance, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly's DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround track is somewhat trickier to judge. During the restoration process, audio technicians took the original mono mix and expanded it to 5.1 channels, a difficult process considering that the sound effects and music were all contained on one track and were effectively inseparable. The end result is a listenable experience that nonetheless shows the dated tech of its source materials. Since all of the voices and sound effects were dubbed in after shooting, elements of the audio often have a canned and compressed range. Just listen to the wind whipping over the dust in the opening sequence, or the tinny patter as the Confederates pull out of town with their cannons in tow. High-end sounds, like the electric guitar in Ennio Morricone's influential score, are overly brash, and bass only gets a chance to rumble during cannon blasts and other sundry explosions. The track is expectedly front-heavy, with the rear channels used mostly for bleeding ambience and score. Voices are clear for the most part, though I often found myself cringing at some of the not-so-subtle ADR work. Still, I always feel a bit unfair putting older films to the test of my modern ears, and for its age and source materials, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, while never wowing, sounds perfectly acceptable.
