The Lost Boys Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Lost Boys makes its Blu-ray debut in a solid 1080p, 2.40:1 video transfer. This isn't the sharpest, clearest, most detailed image I've ever seen, but it looks rather nice and remains consistent with the previous editions I've seen over the years. I always felt the newer DVD edition of the film offered a good upconverted image, and this edition is an improvement. Much of the image is significantly deeper and better detailed. A good example is when the family first arrives at Grandpa's house. Colors are more vibrant, detail is significantly improved both in clothing and in the various wooden pieces seen outside of the house. Still, the image is soft and medium-wide shots lack punch, clarity, detail, and vibrancy. Backgrounds are soft as a rule, to the point of being excessively blurry on occasion, and there is a lack of dimensionality to the image. Fine detail in faces is rather low, too. Various close-ups almost look airbrushed. Nary a pore, blemish, or line is to be seen on human faces. Some scenes are worse offenders than others, but generally, I was disappointed with this aspect of the transfer. Black levels are solid, deep, and offer a true black that contrasts well with the varied color schemes in the movie, particularly reds and the many-colored lights of the Santa Carla boardwalk. While the improvement over the standard definition DVD is palpable, I wouldn't label the upgrade as overly substantial, either.


The Lost Boys Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Lost Boys offers listeners a myriad of audio and subtitle options on this 50GB Blu-ray disc, headlined by a lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack. There is a bit of a harsh edge to the sound, but dynamics and clarity don't suffer as a result. If this track is anything it is generally and remarkably loud. The cover version of the Doors' People Are Strange proves to be a wonderful listening experience, and the song is the perfect compliment to the varied shots of the locals around Santa Carla at the beginning, and also a wonderful epilogue at film's conclusion. The song is the heart and soul of the movie, and I've never heard it sound better than it does here. Some dialogue has a muffled feel to it. There is never an issue of discernment or volume, but it isn't quite as crisp as expected. There is more of a subtle surround presence rather than a dynamic one. The rear channels are rarely engaged in overdrive, but they make their presence known on occasion, and add some flair to a mostly front heavy but nevertheless engaging soundtrack. Much the same can be said for the low frequency effects channel. You won't feel any deep, chair-rattling lows during this movie, but there is a still a hefty punch when called upon. The Lost Boys makes up for what it lacks in sonic authority and activity in the pure listening enjoyment via the various tunes and effects heard during the film.
