Varsity Blues

 (1999)

Varsity Blues Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

At first, backup quarterback Jonathan “Mox” Moxom is nowhere close to being a football star. He’s perfectly content to stay on the bench and out of the win-at-all-cost strategies of coach Bud Kilmer. But when the starting quarterback is injured, Mox is in the game… and in direct conflict with his hotheaded coach and girlfriend. Soon everyone in Mox’s football-crazed community will realize there’s not just a new star quarterback in town, there’s a new kind of hero.

Varsity Blues Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Varsity Blues features a decent, but not at all memorable, 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Colors are strong throughout, with the baby blue West Canaan Coyote jerseys in particular standing out from the rest of the palette. Fine detail is adequately rendered, but there's not much here that catches the eye. Blacks are nice and deep but sometimes seem to drown out some background detail. Flesh tones appear rendered in a natural tint with no heavy red or orange push. Varsity Blues retains a moderately heavy layer of film grain throughout, and there are also a few speckles of dirt over the image. The film appears rather flat and listless. Varsity Blues makes for a decent Blu-ray transfer. Now that the format has matured and reference-quality titles aren't particularly rare, a transfer such as that found on Varsity Blues simply doesn't elicit much of a response and certainly doesn't come with that "wow" factor. It's a good but unremarkable image that should satisfy most viewers that don't expect the next The International with this 10-year-old catalogue title.


Varsity Blues Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Like its video quality, Varsity Blues' Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack is sufficient but unremarkable. It's surprisingly front heavy and none-too-interesting. Football game sequences don't feature an abundance of atmosphere. Crowd noise is present but not immersive, and various hits and crunches on the field don't pack more than an average wallop. There are a few decent atmospherics to be heard in several scenes; Country music is often heard in the background of convenience stores or Coach Kilmer's office, but the track does little more than simply reproduce the sound across the front portion of the soundstage. The various music that plays front-and-center features no discernible problems, but like the rest of the track, there's nothing at all memorable about the way Varsity Blues handles the material. A few slow-motion game segments with amped-up sound effects deliver a decent level of palpable bass, and a few shotgun blasts in chapter 16 send an echoing sensation throughout the soundstage. Such above-average moments are the exception to the rule; Varsity Blues does feature faultless dialogue reproduction, but the remainder of the track seems average at best.
