The Goonies Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, encoded with VC-1 and granted a 1080p transfer, Richard Donner's beloved The Goonies makes its debut on Blu-ray via Warner Brothers-UK.

Well, those outside of the Kingdom hoping for a solid release of The Goonies should not be disappointed by Warner's package. This is a clean, very natural looking, and free of artificial sharpening transfer. It certainly reveals a somewhat dated look but all of the basics appear to be intact - contrast is adequate, the color-scheme is natural, and the actual transfer appears free of specks, dust, and debris. This being said, those of you hoping for a sharp transfer with a strong popping look will be disappointed. The film certainly does not support such an appearance, and the Blu-ray transfer does not reveal such a modern look. In fact, during some of the poorly lit scenes (the cave footage in particular), the 1080p transfer enhances the grainy structure of The Goonies tremendously. With other words, the film reveals a type of dated appearance I would be enormously surprised to see mishandled in any future releases. On the other hand, where there is an adequate amount of inconsistent lighting, contrast appears strong, and detail impressive. Finally, I must note that when blown through a digital projector The Goonies retains a good, and overall, tight look. The picture does not break down and contrast, clarity, and color reproduction remain considerably strong. (Note: This is a region-free release, which you will be able to play in your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


The Goonies Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are a number of audio options on this release: English: Dolby TrueHD 5.1, English: Dolby Digital 5.1, French: Dolby Digital 2.0, Spanish: Dolby Digital 1.0, and English: Dolby Digital 2.0. For the purpose of this review, I opted for the English Doby TrueHD 5.1 mix.

Folks, this is where The Goonies benefits the most from this Blu-ray release: the audio department. The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track Warner have provided is potent and very strong. There is a great deal of activity in the rear channels (the action in the cave offers all sorts of bells and whistles you are likely to have never heard on your SDVDs). From the water splashes to the explosions to the action at the ship, the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix delivers. The dialog on the other hand is crystal clear and very easy to follow, and I did not detect and disturbing pop-ups, cracks, or hissings. The soundtrack by Dave Grusin is also well mixed with plenty of depth that anyone familiar with this film will appreciate. Frankly, Warner's audio treatment is very solid. Lastly, the disc also offers French and Spanish dubs. Optional English, Dutch, French, Portuguese, Korean, and Chinese subtitles are added up as well. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.
