They Live Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

They Live's Blu-ray presentation has it moments that will leave viewers wondering just what sort of transfer they're getting, but generally the image holds up quite well. To be sure, there are some scattered problem spots. There are a handful of soft shot and a couple of downright smudgy spots throughout. Quite a few scenes take on a rather pasty, processed, noise-reduced, unnaturally digital sort of look. Edge enhancement creeps in a few times as well, surrounding various objects with an unnecessary and unnatural glow. On the other hand, the image is quite stable and very crisp. Grain does remain over the image, solidifying some fabulous detailing that reveals complex facial lines, fine textures on Nada's hiking gear, wear and tear on dirty and worn garments, stucco around the church, and brick and concrete in alleyways. Colors are wonderful, yielding superb balance, natural brilliance, and a pleasant appearance, from faded denim to creepy alien facial hues seen in color rather than the film's noted black-and-white, sunglasses-filtered shots. Skin tones are accurate and blacks don't dive too far towards crushing levels. Certainly, the image could stand some refinement and minor polish; it's not perfect, but this is easily the best They Live has ever looked for home viewing. Fans should be very pleased with the results.


They Live Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

They Live features a quality DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The film isn't big budget and it's not brand new, and the track doesn't hide those qualities. It's robust and fun but not so precise as to blur the line between media and real life. The film opens with some ridiculously heavy and somewhat unkempt bass; it sounds more like a car parading down the street with a dozen subwoofers pounding away from the trunk more than a tight movie soundtrack element, but things clean up nicely from there. Music enjoys fine front-end spacing and very good clarity. Atmospherics will impress, whether the din of the construction site, general city ambience, or more aggressive elements like police sirens and hovering helicopters that all naturally fill the stage. Gunfire tears through the stage and plays with that over-pumped 1980s feel about it, but the effect is genuine and works well in context. Dialogue is accurate and remains grounded in the center channel. All told, this is a very strong audio presentation from Scream Factory.
