The Spectacular Now

 (2013)

The Spectacular Now Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Sutter Keely lives in the now. It's a good place for him. A high school senior, charming and self-possessed, he's the life of the party, loves his job at a men's clothing store, and has no plans for the future. A budding alcoholic, he's never far from his supersized, whiskey-fortified thirst-master cup. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky hovering over him. She's different: the "nice girl" who reads science fiction and doesn't have a boyfriend. While Amy has dreams of a future, Sutter lives in the impressive delusion of a spectacular now, yet somehow, they're drawn together.

For more about The Spectacular Now and the The Spectacular Now Blu-ray release, see the The Spectacular Now Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Shailene Woodley, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Miles Teller, Brie Larson (I), Masam Holden, Dayo Okeniyi

The Spectacular Now Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Spectacular Now is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. Shot on film by cinematographer Jess Hall (who shot the funny "Don't" segment of Grindhouse), The Spectacular Now makes great use of its Georgia locations to evince a kind of golden, glowing ambience that seems to perfectly illustrate the frozen moment in time that Sutter wants to preserve. A lot of the film is (deliberately) on the slightly soft side, with lower contrast than some might expect. Hall also seems to prefer natural lighting in virtually every shot, which means that a few interior scenes are bathed in quite a few shadows, which tend to deprive those moments of much in the way of fine detail. Colors are beautifully suffused and very accurate looking, but it's the light that Hall captures that really creates The Spectacular Now's very evocative mood, and that nicely modulated array of brightness and darkness is rendered very well on this high definition presentation.


The Spectacular Now Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Spectacular Now's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is subtle but effective, tending to only draw attention to itself in moments like the early party scene where Sutter confronts Cassidy. Otherwise, there's some fine, if at times rather quiet, ambient environmental effects that are placed quite well around the soundfield, helping to sonically recreate the small town feel that Ponsoldt felt was so important to the film's mood. Dialogue is cleanly presented and Rob Simonsen's nice score also sounds great. There's not a wealth of huge dynamic range here, but fidelity is top notch and there are no problems to report.
