RoboCop (1987) Video Review: The Basics


RoboCop (1987)(Arrow Video) Blu-ray Review: The Basics

The transfer for Robocop Blu-ray is excellent, it's a 4K scan and it really shows; because the detail is very, very good. It was apparently transfers in 2013, but I never got a chance to check it out. The film grain is incredible detailed; however a couple of times I did see some slight breakup in grain consistency. There appears to be some slight ringing and haloing around some objects, this appears to only be a in a few scenes throughout the movie; so it's honestly not bad. There are some super low resolution shots thrown in for good measure too, full of downconverted ringing and haloing. The colors look very natural, and only a couple of circumstances did I see raised black levels with differences in uniformity. Overall I think this a great transfer that isn't perfect, but still very good.


VIDEO SCORE = 4 out of 5
THE BASICS: VERY GOOD




RoboCop (1987) Audio Review: The Basics


RoboCop (1987)(Arrow Video) Blu-ray Review: The Basics

The audio is pretty standard, and nothing really special to report honestly. Most of the audio was 3.1 (all up front) and I didn't feel at any point that this movie wow'd me. Pretty standard.

AUDIO SCORE = 3 out of 5
THE BASICS: AVERAGE

How I Review: The Basics


I just write what I see, nothing super in depth; just what I see. Do I see noise in the blacks? Edge enhancement? Digital Issues? Scaling Problem? I will let you know if I see any errors in the discs; and explain how good they really look. Same with the audio; a very simple review method. I have no agenda other than finding and reporting what I see and hear. My reviews will not get a reference certificate unless its flawless; and I will not be giving out 10/10 or 5/5 video / audio without merit. I'm going to keep this really simple; and I hope you enjoy that side of my Reviews. Thank you.
