Tombstone Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

As a longtime fan of the film, this inconsistent, increasingly problematic 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer left me confused and disappointed. Overcast with a strange breed of shadow, the image is darker and more brooding than it's ever been before, often to the detriment of background and foreground details, nighttime sequences, and low-lit interiors (of which there are many). At first, I thought Cosmatos' stark, sun-bathed locales and the actors' wide-brimmed hats were working in tandem to play a trick on my eyes, but it didn't take long to realize that wasn't the case at all. Though contrast remains quite strong throughout, it continually overwhelms and hampers William A. Fraker's sunburnt Arizona palette. Skintones are frequently either debuffed or oversaturated, black levels are hampered by debilitating crush, and textures are often muddied by the murky results (not to mention the intermittent smearing that appears from time to time). Worse, while the Blu-ray edition handily bests its DVD counterparts in terms of color vibrancy and general clarity, the DVD features more revealing delineation. It's a shame too. For every poorly defined saloon and waxy face, an exceedingly crisp closeup or refined burst of grain hints at how amazing the presentation could have been had the film received a complete restoration. Unfortunately, these showcase scenes tend to contribute to the erratic tenor of the presentation. Other complaints? Edge enhancement produces slight (on some occasions, severe) ringing and aliasing, wavering and flickering make a few negligible appearances, and source noise surges in a handful of shots.

That's not to say Disney's transfer isn't without merit -- primaries are bold and stable, fine detail is quite impressive at times, some shots are downright gorgeous, artifacting and other anomalies are kept to a bare minimum, and the presentation still offers DVD owners a notable upgrade overall -- but it doesn't quite do the whole of the film justice. Hopefully, the studio will revisit Tombstone in the near future and give it the high-dollar overhaul it deserves. For now, fans will have to settle for a decent presentation and focus on enjoying one of their favorite films in high definition.


Tombstone Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

From the moment a dusty gunslinger fires his pistol at the screen and Bruce Broughton's score announces the sudden arrival of Curly Bill's dastardly Cowboys, Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track makes its presence known. The thunder of charging horses, the roar of a shotgun, and the hearty kik-cak of a six-shooter follow close behind, carefully preparing the way for the gunfight behind the O.K. Corral, Wyatt Earp's rage-fueled vendetta, and Doc Holliday's climactic duel. Through it all, LFE output is brazen and aggressive -- lending every shootout and hoof-fall weight and heft -- and rear speaker activity is fierce and involving. Moreover, dialogue remains clear and intelligible, prioritization is nearly impeccable (more on that in a bit), and directionality is thoroughly convincing. Listen to the heart-wrenched gravel in Russell's voice when he cries "hell's comin' with me!" The wet crack of a cowboy's broken nose and the syrupy splash of his blood. The triumphant horns and mounting drums that seem to propel Earp and his immortals into history. Dynamics, channel pans, separation... it's all exactly as it should be, and injects some much-needed value into the release. If anything, several lines are lost beneath the chaotic storm, and still others suffer from somewhat shrill ADR work. Even so, each instance is attributable to the original audio elements and rarely detracts from the quality of the track. All in all, those who've been eagerly anticipating Tombstone's Blu-ray debut will be most pleased.
