The Right Stuff Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Right Stuff's cinematographer, Caleb Deschanel (The Passion of the Christ), faced the challenge of recreating a period look spanning the late Forties to the early Sixties, then blending it with both existing documentary footage and effects sequences using both models and full-size mockups. His work was nominated for an Oscar, one the film's eight nominations. (It won for editing, sound, sound effects editing and score.)

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray offers a pleasingly film-like image that is consistently detailed, fine-grained and colorful with a widely varying palette. The browns and yellows of the desert country surrounding Edwards Air Force Base contrast with the whites and blues of the various NASA facilities—the old mechanical style vs. the new scientific method, so to speak—and the various domestic situations have their own low-key styles, usually darkened, as if to express that these places don't get the full measure of the men's attention. The space flight sequences are often rough and grainier than the rest of the film, which helps them match with the archival footage and lends a feeling of authenticity, especially for anyone who remembers watching these events on TV.

The image may appear soft to eyes accustomed to contemporary digital sharpness, but the detail is readily apparent in any scene that doesn't involve opticals. Black levels and contrast appear to be accurate, and there is no sign of inappropriate digital manipulation in the form of high frequency filtering or artificial sharpening. The average bitrate of 22.49 Mbps is not surprising for a 193-minute film, and it appears to be adequate to avoid compression-related issues.


The Right Stuff Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Right Stuff was released in both Dolby Stereo and a six-track mix for 70mm blow-ups. Presumably the six-track mix was the basis for the 5.1 remix featured on Warner's 2003 DVD and presented here as lossless Dolby TrueHD. The film's Oscar-winning sound mix and sound editing are very much in evidence in the numerous flight sequences, each of which has its own character in keeping with the different aircraft, courses, weather conditions and all the particulars of each specific endeavor. Subtler sounds, like the hum of activity in Mission Control or the snake-like hiss of the press corps (with their cameras winding and clicking) or the constant wind blowing around Pancho's bar, don't always register consciously, but they're essential to the film's sonic texture.

Bill Conti, who replaced composer John Barry at the last minute, won an Oscar for his energetic score, which captures the can-do spirit of the pilots and astronauts without indulging in an excess of patriotic fervor. The score on this Blu-ray track sounds warmer and more present than I can ever remember hearing it. The dialogue is always clear, even accounting for regional accents (including Donald Moffat's ripe impersonation of LBJ's Texas twang).
