The Women in Cages Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

(FYI: The liner notes state that A/V elements were difficult to corral for this trilogy release, explaining the less than ideal presentations.)

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation on "Big Doll House" looks fresh and inviting for such a cult item, displaying a dense sense of color and skintones, keeping the ladies looking natural (in or out of clothes). Hues are strong, popping off orange costumes and jungle greenery, also memorable with the hair color. Clarity is pleasing, capturing details of terror and sweat, also seizing facial textures, with Haig's rough skin alone perfect for HD display. Set designs are up for easy inspection. Shadow detail is a touch too clouded, pulling depth out of evening shots and low-lit cells. The print is less than ideal, feature numerous defects and reel changes. However, the roughness does add an interesting retro theatrical vibe for more adventurous viewers. The imperfections add to the experience.

"Women in Cages and "The Big Bird Cage" appear slightly less intense with their AVC encoded images (each with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio) -- two unpredictable viewing experiences that shift rather radically in clarity from scene to scene ("The Big Bird Cage" is the primary offender), almost resembling a patchwork quilt of quality. A few shots are completely soft, lacking texture and cinematic grit, while others are relatively crisp, communicating an HD feel for the cinematography, with satisfactory detail on the actors and a good sense of location depth. Colors are capable, best with tropical hues. Crush is a problem, solidifying blacks with a distracting hold at times. Print damage is detected, with scratches, shifts, and reel changes apparent.


The Women in Cages Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix for "Big Doll House" is truly a mixed bag, requiring some patience with the tattered source material. There's a consistent presence of hiss and pops, which vacillate in intensity during the presentation. The Blu-ray producers have done an amazing job rescuing what they could, but a few scenes are difficult to listen to, swallowed by an erratic balance between hiss and dialogue. The rest of the film is expectedly frontal and shrill, requiring some mild volume riding when the action heats up in the finale. Music sounds crisp, especially the bookend tune from Pam Grier, but rarely dimensional, holding to a modest punch. Low-end is limited.

With 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mixes, "Women in Cages" and "The Big Bird Cage" sound as clean as humanly possible, using the frontal hold to communicate a collection of vocal intensity. Though lacking crisp separation, the verbal exchanges sound fuller than "Big Doll House" (especially on "The Big Bird Cage;" "Women in Cages" retains heavy hiss and distortion), carrying more weight to articulate the dramatic content, offering limited audio resistance. Scoring is pleasing, never getting in the way of the actors, while holding a steady jungle beat to help propel the movie's action. Violence is elevated, with explosions carrying a rumble, also keeping gunfire charmingly chaotic.
