The Rum Diary

 (2011)

The Rum Diary Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Tiring of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of the late Eisenhower-era United States, journalist Paul Kemp travels to the U.S. pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper, The San Juan Star, run by downtrodden editor Lotterman. Adopting the rum-soaked life of the island, Paul soon becomes obsessed with Chenault, the wildly attractive Connecticut-born fiancé of Sanderson. Sanderson, a businessman involved in shady property development deals, is one of a growing number of U.S. entrepreneurs who are determined to convert Puerto Rico into a capitalist paradise in service of the wealthy.

The Rum Diary Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Rum Diary's Blu-ray release is handsome. The 1080p, 1.85:-1-framed image is sourced from the native Super 16 film element, which yields steady details and a beautiful film-like texture. Moderate grain is visible throughout, which serves to enhance details in faces and clothing. The image is crisp, not razor-sharp, but consistently natural in structure. Brighter exteriors and darker interiors alike come alive with accurate, steady details and textures that suit the movie well. Colors often favor a slightly dimmed appearance, but red planes and cars, bright blue skies, dark blue waters, and island clothes are all nicely presented. Black levels are strong, and flesh tones are balanced. The image is free of intrusive banding, blocking, or wear. While The Rum Diary won't pass as brilliant eye candy, Sony's transfer is gorgeous and always representative of a good, innate filmic appearance that reflects the picture's natural elements nicely.


The Rum Diary Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Rum Diary features a polished and precise DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Music plays with superb spacing and fine body throughout, even at a club scene in chapter eleven where music spills into the listening area with a slightly muddled texture that represents the moment nicely and differs from crisper overlaying score. Ambience is a great strength; the picture naturally immerses its listener into every environment, whether it plays with the mechanical printing presses at the newspaper headquarters, the general clatter of ringing telephones and typewriter keystrokes in the office, the din of an outdoor protest march, or even the sound of booming explosions and whizzing artillery shells that zoom across the soundstage in chapter ten. Oceanfront waves all but soak the listening area, so naturally smooth they sound. Dialogue is consistently strong and plays naturally from the center speaker. The Rum Diary doesn't exactly scream out "awesome audio," but that's exactly what Sony's latest delivers. This one is great from top to bottom.
