The Star Chamber Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Star Chamber arrives on Blu-ray with a decent but mostly underwhelming transfer, just about the sort of picture quality longtime format fans have come to expect of a catalogue title plopped onto a disc for cheap release. Grain fluctuates between excessively sharp and so subtle it's almost invisible. The image shows some scattered edge halos, but nothing too distracting. Details are just alright; faces and clothes are nicely defined in close-up shots, but backgrounds are often drab, soft, and lacking in much definition, In fact, there's a pervasive softness around the edges of much of the film. Colors, too, are bland, not looking dull or faded but certainly not popping off the screen like would be seen in a new movie. Black levels fluctuate a bit, though not too far from the norm, at times hinting at crush or showing just a little paleness. Flesh tones, however, prove a bit more stable. There are a couple of random pops and scratches here and there, but again nothing worth a considerable markdown in score. It's an "eh, OK" sort of transfer. Expect little and enjoy.


The Star Chamber Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Like the video, The Star Chamber's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack is nothing special. It does deliver a bit more in the way of pronounced range and clarity than some of the lower end two-channel tracks floating around with cheaply priced catalogue titles from other studios, but clarity isn't demonstrably better. Larger sounds in particular -- a rumbling garbage truck, a tussle and gunshot partway through the movie, even an explosion near the end -- lack much in the way of body and power. The subwoofer never really gets to crank out much low end goodness, leaving the film's heaviest effects sounding rather puny and mushy. Even lighter ambience, like gentle applause or the background din of a restaurant, fail to really excite the listener, place him or her in the location, or even find much in the way of simple clarity. There's a slightly wider-feeling stage at the Dodger Stadium segment, but again raw accuracy suffers. Dialogue comes through evenly enough from the center, and as a dialogue-intensive film, the track at least gets right its most important piece. Audio retailers won't flock to this title for demo purposes, but it suits the lower end release and price point well enough.
