The Matador Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

For the most part, The Matador looks sharp as a picador's lance on this AVC encoded 1080p Blu-ray in 2.35:1. Colors are incredibly vivid and brilliantly saturated, and fine detail is excellent throughout the film. Shepard supposedly utilizes a lot of different locales (some with brief establishing shots), but in actuality the film was shot mostly in Mexico City, which stands in for various world locations. This is an exceptionally brightly colored film, with one of the most variegated palettes in recent memory, and the Blu-ray reproduces that spectrum effortlessly. The only problem with this video presentation is some brief aliasing and some momentary shimmer which crops up on various geometric patterns. You'll notice it most especially on the horizontal patterns in the racetrack during the film's climax. Otherwise, this is a sparklingly effective hi-def presentation that provides a surprising wealth of visual information to enjoy.


The Matador Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is a moment in the opening scenes of The Matador which will throw most audiophiles for a complete jolting loop, in a good way. I won't spoil it for you, other than to say it's probably the showiest moment that The Matador's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (not Dolby TrueHD 5.1 as the insert states) mix provides in the way of LFE, but the good news is, this is a very well realized mix that has an abundance of immersive detail in matters both large and small. From the confines of the Mexico City lobby and bar, we hear conversations and ambient noises spill in from the surrounds. In the bullfighting sequence, that immersion becomes even more noticeable with both crowd noises and the actual bullfight zinging through the soundfield. Dialogue is always crisp and clear and both the underscore and source cues are very well mixed into the proceedings. The Matador isn't always as bombastic as the moment alluded to above, but it provides great depth and nuance throughout the film, with spot on fidelity and excellent dynamic range.
