Weird Science

 (1985)

Weird Science Blu-ray features bad video and solid audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

A nerdy computer whiz and his best friend create the perfect woman. Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo's out-of-this-world creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of adolescence.

For more about Weird Science and the Weird Science Blu-ray release, see Weird Science Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Anthony Michael Hall, Kelly LeBrock, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Bill Paxton, Robert Downey, Jr., Suzanne Snyder
Director: John Hughes

Weird Science Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.5 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) presentation emerges from an ancient Universal master, resulting in a muddy, unpleasant viewing experience. Filtered to the extreme long ago, the BD exposes the limitations of the transfer with a slight HD upgrade in sharpness. Ringing, motion blur, macroblocking, and slight banding are present, while noisy backgrounds are persistent. Fine detail is almost non-existent in certain shots, with faces looking waxy and inexpressive, making a few long shots nearly impossible to discern. Design particulars are also robbed of texture. Color is flat with some bleeding, a tad faded as well, while blacks are largely solidified. Skintones are drab, losing LeBrock's inherent lustfulness. Print is clean. In dire need of a fresh scan, "Weird Science" disappoints immensely on BD.


Weird Science Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix for "Weird Science" is straightforward, preserving the cartoon shenanigans with a satisfactory energy that emphasizes dialogue exchanges. Voices are crisp but rarely full, separated adequately from scoring efforts, which support without overwhelming the listening experience. Soundtrack cuts aren't nearly as powerful as desired, but they retain a pleasing circular quality (the title track being a highlight), reaching into the surrounds, while crowd antics and computer exploration also provide depth and mild directional movement. Low-end is sparse at best, rarely employed.
