What Just Happened

 (2008)

What Just Happened Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Two nail-biting, back-stabbing, roller-coaster weeks in the world of a middle-aged Hollywood producer as he tries to juggle an actual life with an outrageous series of crises in his day job. Ben is besieged by people who want him all to be sorts of things -- a money maker, an ego buster, a bad news breaker, an artistic champion, a loyal husband, an all-knowing father, not to mention sexy, youthful and tuned-in -- everything except for the one thing he and all the preposterously behaved people he's surrounded by really are: bumbling human beings just trying to survive by any means necessary.

For more about What Just Happened and the What Just Happened Blu-ray release, see What Just Happened Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Robert De Niro, Catherine Keener, Sean Penn, John Turturro, Robin Wright Penn, Paul Herman (I)
Director: Barry Levinson

What Just Happened Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Magnolia Pictures releases What Just Happened on Blu-ray with a 1080p, AVC-encoded transfer that's short on HD wow moments but otherwise suits the tone of the film. Overall clarity is average, with some nice sharp facial textures and decent background detail, but a far softer look than most modern cinematic outings. Grain levels hold steady through most of the film, in a thin but pervasive layer, although there are a few instances where analog noise spikes a bit. Blacks, however, are somewhat inconsistent, sometimes looking spot-on, other times seeming washed out, and occasionally crushing detail—like during the scene in the editing bay. Colors are strong and realistic, and skin tones are natural, except when strong lighting dictates otherwise. I did notice two strange transfer issues though. When De Niro walks into the bathroom at the beginning of the film, there's some bizarre contrast wavering on the tile flooring, and later, when he looks up at his ex- wife standing on the stairs, I noticed what appears to be a minor earthquake of telecine wobble.


What Just Happened Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As a character-driven comedy, What Just Happened sports a DTS-HD MA 5.1 track that is balanced to enhance and prioritize dialogue. Voices are clear and well mixed throughout, and while the film is expectedly light on surround use—offering up few discrete effects—the ambient activity that is present in the rears is fluid and never jarring. Thankfully, a fine score by Marcelo Zarvos fills out the sound field when necessary—especially when De Niro is tooling around town in his Ferrari SUV—and the bass in the incidental music gives the track its sole opportunity to rumble. While a bit on the thin side, this is a pleasant enough mix, and my only complaint is in regard to the overly brash sound design that pops up during the funeral scene.
