The Yards

 (1999)

The Yards Blu-ray features poor video and audio in this poor Blu-ray release

After being imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Leo Handler just wants to get his life back on track, so he heads home to take a job in the New York City subway yards, where his highly connected Uncle Frank now runs the show. He meets up with his old childhood friend, Willie Guitierrez, his cousin, and his girlfriend, Erica, and for once he feels settled and safe. He soon discovers, however,...

The Yards Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

The Yards arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p, 1.78:1 transfer, severely cropped down from its original 2.39:1 wide aspect ratio. With that out of the way and pulling down the score quite a bit, how does the cropped transfer fair? Despite the aspect ratio faux pas, The Yards doesn't fare too poorly. This is a somewhat soft, hazy image by its very nature, and quite dark at times, too. Detail isn't superb -- it's mostly bland, in fact -- and viewers hoping for a sharp, well-defined image won't find one. Still, skin and clothing textures fare well enough in extreme close-up shots and under the right lighting conditions, but viewers shouldn't expect much more. Ditto colors; this is a dim, visually unattractive film that eschews a bright palette in an effort to reinforce its darker themes, but well-lit shots reveal a nicely balanced color scheme, usually as seen in the same scenes that also house the best raw detailing available. Grain is retained over the image and actually adds a nice cinematic texture to the transfer. A few speckles and scratches, crushed blacks, and of course the crop job drag the score down, but The Yards looks fairly good all things considered, and would certainly rank quite a bit higher if it were presented in its proper aspect ratio.


The Yards Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

The Yards makes its Blu-ray debut with a bland, inconsequential DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack. A wider 5.1 mix might have served it better, allowing it to open up and maybe capture some more of the subtleties of the listening experience, but as it is this is a workmanlike presentation that will get listeners through the movie but nothing more. It often plays like a lightweight soundtrack with no real desire to broaden its horizons. Cramped, unpolished music; squishy ambience; and tinny dialogue are all characteristics that negatively impact the soundtrack. It does display a fairly aggressive low end at times, and a club scene in chapter three serves up a fair bit of energy that even approaches something resembling real clarity, but the track is usually a dull, uninteresting one that will probably disappoint all but the easiest-to-please of listeners.
