Waiting for Lightning Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Waiting for Lightning is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of First Run Features with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer (mostly) in 1.78:1 (a lot of the archival minicam footage is in 1.33:1). As should be expected from a documentary cobbled together from such disparate source elements, there's a fairly wide disparity in the quality of the look of the film. The contemporary interview segments pop the best, again as should be expected, with excellent sharpness, very good fine detail and accurate looking color. Though this is a progressive presentation, it's obvious that some of the older footage is sourced from interlaced elements, and clearly visible combing artifacts crop up from time to time, especially in moments of fast motion. A lot of the older footage is pretty fuzzy looking, and there also some attendant issues off of broadcasts like ghosting. When taken in context, though, the bulk of this presentation is certainly acceptable at the very least, and with regard to the new elements, much more than that.


Waiting for Lightning Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

First Run Features is still fairly new to the Blu-ray game and may not have gotten the memo that high definition consumers have reached the point where they simply demand lossless audio on their releases, even if any given product may not offer hugely impressive soundtracks to begin with. Waiting For Lightning in fact offers only lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 mixes, and they suffice relatively well for a film that is after all made up largely of talking head and narrated sequences. The 5.1 mix is really pretty front heavy in any case, without a lot of overwhelming surround activity. Fidelity remains very good, and (as should be expected) dynamic range is fairly nil.
