Wings Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Wings debuts on Blu-ray with a nice looking retro 1080p, 1.34:1-framed transfer that places vertical black bars on either side of the 1.78:1 display to preserve the film's original presentation appearance. The visual experience opens brilliantly, beginning with the current, colorful high definition Paramount logo which gives way to each previous variant of the same, until reaching the film's original take on the famous stars-and-mountains. The movie itself produces an image that's generally presented in a sepia overlay. There's a stretch of black-and-white and a stretch of heavier blue shading, with the only real splashes of color coming in the form of bright oranges that accent firing machine guns and planes on fire. Fine detail is strong; backgrounds can look a little warped and soft, but foregrounds, clothes, and faces appear nicely resolved, with good clarity and texturing evident in most every scene, from the aerial battles to a Parisian night club. Some slight banding is evident, and such instances introduce a false arc of green onto the image. There's certainly a hint of wear and tear here and there, but this is, for the most part, a remarkably clean restoration. A visible grain structure retains, and the cumulative result is a veritable time machine that takes audiences back decades thanks to the horsepower of today's best restorative and projection video technology.


Wings Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Wings features a pair of soundtracks, one a DTS-HD MA 5.1 presentation with "re-recorded score composed by J.S. Zamecnik (orchestrated and arranged by Dominik Hauser; featured pianist -- Frederick Hodges) with sound effects by Ben Burtt" and the other a Dolby Digital 2.0 track that offers the "pipe organ score composed and performed by Gaylord Carter." The DTS presentation is spectacular. It offers up a listen that's wonderfully clean and very spacious. Music plays with a crispness and clarity that makes it easy to distinguish the range of instruments used to re-score the picture. The crisp notes throughout the range and the strong supporting low cumulatively yield a sonically beautiful presentation. The 5.1 track additionally makes use of the entire soundstage in the implementation of various sound effects. Whirring propellors slice through the listening area, whether churning on the ground or carrying an aircraft in the sky. Machine gun fire is crisp and emanates from various speakers depending on the situation. Screaming sirens blare into the stage, explosions are hefty and accurate, and artillery shells zip around the soundstage during some of the more critical land battle scenes. The effects, however, aren't so unnatural that they pull the audience out of the movie; there's an authenticity to the experience that benefits the movie and each plays seamlessly in the greater context. The Dolby Digital "organ" track sounds fantastic, too. It's clean, spacious, and very distinct, and not lacking too far behind the seamlessness of the lossless effort. However, it lacks the added sound effects. Both tracks provide unique listening experiences; the re-recorded track and effects blend very well with the visuals, and even the purists might be surprised at how well it works. The easy solution: watch the movie in full with both!
