The Outsiders Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Coming-of-age drama about teenagers growing up in 1950s Oklahoma. The youngest of three orphaned brothers gets into trouble with the law after he and his "greaser" friend are attacked at a park by the rich "socs."

For more about The Outsiders and the The Outsiders Blu-ray release, see the The Outsiders Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

The Outsiders Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Cinematographer Stephen H. Burum, a film school classmate of Coppola's and a frequent collaborator with director Brian De Palma, shot The Outsiders. Rarely has the full width of the anamorphic Panavision frame been so consistently filled with interesting sights and worthwhile performances. Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is one of its best catalog releases to date, featuring a film-like texture, a fine and natural grain pattern, deep blacks, excellent detail and the kind of richly saturated colors that are meant to evoke the style of earlier teenage classics like Rebel Without a Cause and East of Eden. Some viewers have reported a difference in quality between the restored footage and the original material, but I did not observe any obvious distinction.

At an average bitrate of 28.43 Mbps, The Outsiders falls significantly above Warner's typical range of compression, and one can only be thankful. The film's imagery is atmospheric and suggestive, and it deserves all the bandwidth it can get. Coppola's company, American Zoetrope, has been known to play an active part in the preparation of its films for Blu-ray; perhaps that was the case here.


The Outsiders Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Outsiders was originally released in Dolby Stereo in 1983, but the 2005 release of "The Complete Novel" probably featured a multi-channel digital track (although I have been unable to confirm this). Contrary to the notation on the back of the Blu-ray case, the Blu-ray's soundtrack is 5.0 (not 5.1), encoded in lossless DTS-HD MA. I do not have the DVD for comparison, but it is listed as having a 5.1 track. Whether the mix never had separate LFE or the LFE was blended back into the five channels, the track has broad dynamic range and good fidelity. With one possible exception (a major event that can't be identified without spoilers), nothing in the mix calls for deep bass extension.

In addition to the all-important dialogue, which is generally clear but occasionally drowned out (deliberately) by overlapping sounds, the soundtrack of "The Complete Novel" is notable for its memorable selection of rock tunes, including several Elvis Presley songs, Jerry Lee Lewis' "Real Wild Child", Carl Perkins' "Lend Me Your Comb" and Them's "Gloria" (the last one a holdover from the original release). The twang, vocals and powerful beat of these tunes provide a natural accompaniment to the elemental sentiments being expressed onscreen, and the Blu-ray's track delivers the songs with the right level of force and presence. There are several major sequences involving action, but The Outsiders' sound mix is more attuned to small, quiet moments than big set pieces. Even one of the film's most important events (the encounter that forces Johnny and Ponyboy to leave town), is handled so that the audience barely hears what is happening.
