Tommy

 (1975)

Tommy Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

This classic rock opera is brought energetically to life by an outstanding cast including many stars of the rock music industry. Told through the remarkable music of The Who, this is the story of Tommy, who, when just a boy of six, witnessed the murder of his father by his mother and her lover. They command him, "You didn't hear it, you didn't see it, and you won't say anything to anyone..." As a result, the traumatized boy retreats into the shadows of his mind and becomes deaf, dumb and blind.

For more about Tommy and the Tommy Blu-ray release, see Tommy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Jack Nicholson, Elton John, Tina Turner
Director: Ken Russell

Tommy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Tommy debuts on Blu-ray with a strongly-realized 1080p transfer framed in the picture's original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Though it offers an ever-so-slightly faded appearance that's in-line with the usual look of 1970s pictures, Tommy never wants for superior color reproduction. Most hues appear accurately rendered, though bright reds do tend to look slightly exaggerated and stand out against the rest of the palette. Still, the image sports a wonderfully film-like texture thanks not only to its retention of a fine layer of film grain, but the consistently sharp detailing and focused imagery that rarely lacks the spit-and-polish of a pleasantly and naturally presented film on Blu-ray. Tommy yields strong detailing in all of the usual areas, including faces and clothes, and while the finest nuanced and background elements don't look quite as natural and clear as transfers sourced from brand-new material, the image never really leaves any room for complaint. Unfortunately, very slight blocking and banding are seen on occasion, and while blacks remain nicely preserved and naturally inky, there are a few occasions where they drift towards a slightly too dark appearance and drown out finer details within the foreground. Otherwise, Tommy looks fantastic; flesh tones are natural, and the print is free of any excessive wear-and-tear. Another day, another first-class transfer from Sony.


Tommy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Tommy's Blu-ray debut features two soundtracks: a "Quintaphonic" 5.0 mix and a more traditional DTS-HD MA 5.1 presentation. For listeners unfamiliar with a Quintaphonic track, Sony has included an informative and detailed writeup found on a two-sided leaflet located inside the Blu-ray case. The details are better left to the included information, but what listeners need to know is that the Quintaphonic track retains the basic front left, center, front right, back left, and back right speaker configuration, but the sound engineers accomplished the implementation of five channels of equal fidelity through only three magnetic soundtracks through the technique of "matrixing" -- or combining -- the front and back left and right tracks into one, while leaving the center, or primary, channel with its own discrete soundtrack. No matter the complicated technical elements behind the track; Tommy was the first -- and only -- picture to utilize this then-revolutionary sound process, and Sony's audio engineers have diligently worked to use the finest elements available to recreate as closely as possible the picture's original Quintaphonic sound presentation. The Quintaphonic mix on the Blu-ray disc is actually presented as a DTS-HD MA 5.0 soundtrack, but it retains much the same feel, spacing, and rawness of the original presentation. Indeed, the Quintaphonic track yields a listening experience that's unique to say the least; surrounds are pushed heavily and regularly, carrying as much bulk as the front, but not at the expense of decent clarity and great strength. If anything, Tommy's too loud at reference volume and the material just seems hurled at the listener from every direction, yielding something of a confused but unique and worthwhile listen. Switching to the 5.1 mix yields a much more traditional, though still surround-heavy, presentation. Clarity takes on an immediate boost as well; sample chapter nine, the "Pinball Wizard" segment, with both tracks; the differences are quite striking. Either way, Sony's dual presentations both impress, one as the original track reproduced about as well as can be, the other a more refined and traditional-sounding offering that's still in and of itself a quality listen and worthwhile track. Why not watch Tommy twice, once with each track?
