Uncle Buck

 (1989)

Uncle Buck Blu-ray offers decent video and poor audio in this poor Blu-ray release

John Candy stars in Uncle Buck, the outrageous comedy written and directed by John Hughes. As an idle, good-natured bachelor, Uncle Buck is the last person you would think of to watch the kids. However, during a family crisis, he is suddenly left in charge of his nephew and nieces. Unaccustomed to suburban life, fun-loving Uncle Buck soon charms his younger relatives Miles and Maizy with his hefty cooking and his new way of doing the laundry. His carefree style does not impress everyone though - especially his rebellious teenage niece, Tia, and his impatient girlfriend, Chanice. With a little bit of luck and a lot of love, Uncle Buck manages to surprise everyone in this heartwarming family comedy.

For more about Uncle Buck and the Uncle Buck Blu-ray release, see Uncle Buck Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Uncle Buck Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Uncle Buck stumbles with an uneven 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that prevails one minute and flounders the next. Initially, pink-tinted skintones and some obvious edge enhancement are the only major points of contention. Fine detail is surprisingly good, Hughes' wintry palette is bright and lively on the whole, black levels are deep and a crisp veneer of grain lends the picture a nice, filmic quality. Keep your eyes peeled though. A host of issues soon make their presence known. Black levels may be deep, but the moment the sun sets they become heavy, overbearing and impenetrable. Colors follow suit, growing a tad lifeless and murky. Worse, contrast falters early and often, faces frequently flush, crush becomes a prevailing issue and delineation isn't up to snuff. Slight print damage peppers the proceedings as well, as does even more noticeable ringing, intermittent flickering, minor telecine wobble and sudden spikes in the film's grainfield. Thankfully, detail remains impressive (for the most part), artifacting and banding are nowhere to be found, and other digital anomalies rarely creep out of the woodwork. At the moment, I'm teetering between a 2.5 and a 3.0... so take that as you will. Either way, approach Uncle Buck with a fair bit of caution.


Uncle Buck Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

As if its video transfer weren't troubling enough, Universal condemns Uncle Buck to bargain bin hell with a disappointing 384kbps DTS stereo mix. That's right. Universal has decided to sidestep lossless audio altogether, recycling a cramped and clumsy DVD-quality track sure to leave fans wondering what just happened. Dialogue is decent I suppose, even if it doesn't boast the crispness and clarity we've all come to know and love. Ira Newborn's score and the film's sound effects aren't so lucky. Inconsistent, unruly, occasionally muffled and continually pitted against each other, neither one is given an opportunity to shine and both suffer accordingly. But what the two-channel mix really lacks is finesse, an issue that becomes painfully clear as the film plows ahead.
