The Rocker

 (2008)

The Rocker Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

A failed drummer is given a second chance at fame. Robert "Fish" Fishman is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate drummer for the eighties hair band Vesuvius, who is living the rock n' roll dream until he is unceremoniously kicked out of the band. Twenty years after his rock star fantasies are destroyed, just when Fish has finally given up all hope, he hears that his nephew's high school rock band A.D.D. is looking for a new drummer. They reluctantly make him the newest member of the band, giving him a chance to reclaim the Rock God throne he's always thought he deserved, and taking the young band along for the ride of their lives.

For more about The Rocker and the The Rocker Blu-ray release, see the The Rocker Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Rainn Wilson, Christina Applegate, Josh Gad, Teddy Geiger, Emma Stone, Jeff Garlin
Director: Peter Cattaneo

The Rocker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

What The Rocker lacks in actual content, it partially makes up for in a candy colored 1080p AVC encoded transfer that is wonderfully sharp and brilliantly saturated. This is a film that really exults in an amazing kaleidoscope of colors, and that over the top palette (almost reminiscent of Speed Racer at times, believe it or not) is expertly rendered throughout. While there are some overly dark segments in the onstage sequences, contrast is excellent and black levels are deep and true. The bulk of the film, however, is a kaleidoscope of bright primary colors, which erupt onscreen without ever going over the line into blooming. Detail is excellent throughout, with the stiffly hairsprayed coifs of Vesuvius showing every strand of errant hair, and the sometimes very intricate patterns of costumes never devolving into moiré patterns or other artifacting. This video presentation is "solid, man."


The Rocker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Rocker also does extremely well in the sonic department, at least in the ubiquitous concert and music sequences, courtesy of a DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix. Surrounds really come alive in these moments. You'll notice it right off the bat with the explosions which start off the Cleveland Vesuvius concert at the head of the film. Crowd noises surround the listener and make for a nice mosh pit ambience. When the film settles down to its relatively quieter sequences, a noticeable lack of surround activity is present. Dialogue is always crisp and clear, and usually directional enough to be realistic, but the "wow" factor is definitely in the music, probably as it should be. This is a fairly bass heavy music track, with some nice thundering drums and bass emanating from the subwoofer.
