The Idolmaker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Idolmaker is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.84:1. While the elements utilized for this transfer are in really good shape, there's still the generally soft appearance in attendance here that has been apparent in previous home video releases of this title (I confess I never saw The Idolmaker theatrically, but my hunch is this is an accurate recreation of the original look). There are some nice upgrades here, notably in color saturation, which is really beautiful at times, as well as perhaps a bit more moderately in terms of fine detail, which rises to very good levels when Hackford indulges in extreme close-ups. Contrast is generally very strong, though the film seems a tad dark at times. My hunch is some DNR may also have been applied to this release; while fine grain is in evidence, this has a slightly smoother quality than I would have expected for a film from this era.


The Idolmaker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Idolmaker reserves its repurposed DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix to beef up the great song score by Jeff Barry. While Hackford indicates he thinks of The Idolmaker as a traditional musical, others may depart, albeit however slightly, from that assessment, but the fact remains this film is filled with some great musical numbers, which now have the added benefit of a much more lively low end, as well as greater space in the soundfield to breathe. Dialogue remains very clean and clear and fidelity is excellent. Dynamic range get a significant boost during the musical numbers. The film's original mix is available in the similarly excellent if not quite so vivid DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 option.
