Weekend at Bernie's Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Weekend at Bernie's was shot by cinematographer François Protat (Johnny Mnemonic), a frequent collaborator with director Kotcheff during this period. Although the Northeast is said to be suffering from a heat wave in the film, the palette remains bright and cheerful, even in the sweltering city. Once the action shifts to Bernie's island retreat, the cool hues and pastel tones of a seaside paradise help establish the comic contrast with the potentially morbid subject matter.

Fox/MGM's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is an exceptionally fine catalog release. The source material is in excellent shape. Detail, sharpness and clarity are superior throughout—to such a degree that one can even spot a specific makeup effect used to transform Terry Kiser into Bernie Lomax (the trailer gives away this moment, but I won't). Blacks are deep and solid, and the image has a fine and natural grain pattern that appears undisturbed by filtering, sharpening or other digital manipulation. With an average bitrate of 26.89 Mbps, and no extras other than a trailer, Bernie's has been brought to Blu-ray without visible compression artifacts.


Weekend at Bernie's Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Weekend at Bernie's was released in Dolby Stereo, which has been reproduced here as lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0. When played back through a good surround decoder, the track provides a pleasing sense of ambiance, especially for scenes on the island ferry, at the seashore, in the lighthouse where Gwen takes Richard sightseeing and aboard Bernie's boat. The dynamic range is very good, although there is little in the way of bass extension, and the dialogue is clear. The jaunty soundtrack by Police guitarist Andy Summers sets the perfect mock-serious tone.
