The Good, the Bad, the Weird Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Kim Ji-woon's The Good, the Bad, the Weird arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of UK-based distributors Icon Home Entertainment.

The AVC-encoded transfer is pleasing. Contrast is exceptionally strong, sharpness levels adequate and edge-enhancement not a serious issue of concern (there are a couple of scenes, mostly from the desert battles, where some thicker lining becomes noticeable but, overall, the transfer looks very good when blown through a digital projector). The color-scheme is also very impressive, though I must note that there are quite a few color manipulations in The Good, the Bad, the Weird that I am unsure how to evaluate. Particularly during the Ghost Market clash, there are some beautiful but very strange colors. For example, the sky goes from light gray to deep purple, etc. This being said, I also detected a bit of mild contrast boosting, which some of you may notice during the panoramic vistas from the second half of the film. On the other hand, you will see plenty of healthy (light) film grain. Finally, there are no disturbing scratches, debris, or specks to report in this review. All in all, I am very pleased with this Blu-ray disc and have absolutely no problem recommending it to you. For the record, the disc contains the 130-minute "Argentinean" cut of the film. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" release. Therefore, in order to access its content, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free player).


The Good, the Bad, the Weird Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Korean (with bits of Mandarin and Japanese) DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 track. I opted for the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 track for the purpose of this review.

Icon Home Entertainment have supplied a top-notch DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The bass is rich and potent, the rear channels very active (especially during the desert fights from the second half of the film) and the high-frequencies not artificially sharpened. This being said, balance isn't an issue of concern either – you definitely won't have to reach for your remote control and adjust the volume every couple of minutes. Additionally, the dialog is crisp, clean and very easy to follow. The original soundtrack by Dalparan and Jang Yeong-gyu sounds terrific as well, and I certainly did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.

Generally speaking, the Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 track sounds good. I used mostly scenes from the second half of the film to compare it to the Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and, as far as I am concerned, the biggest difference between the two is in the bass activity. As mentioned earlier, The Good, the Bad, the Weird is a film with strong surround and bass activity and the Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 track simply cannot match the intensive sound the Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track allows. On the other hand, the dialog is practically identical on both tracks. For the record, Icon Home Entertainment have provided imposed English subtitles for the main feature that appear inside the image frame.
