The Limits of Control (2009) Blu-ray Video Review: The Basics


The Limits of Control (2009) Blu-ray Review: The Basics

The transfer on this disc is excellent in my opinion. The consistency of the film grain is very good, I wouldn't say it's absolutely perfect however, there are instances where the film grain appears heavier in dark scenes, but still...It's very good. The color is slightly washed out, but very natural looking, this is a stylized look of the film and I really liked it. To be honest I didn't even know it was a recent movie because it's stylized very much like a 70's movie, I guess I would say Noir. In any case, I really love the way this movie looks, and has great sharpness. According to IMDB it is sourced from a 2KDI master, and shot on 35mm film, you can tell because the grain is real, real heavy. The only thing I will say is that I personally felt that the bitrate could have been higher in a couple of scenes. I saw minor breakup, but it was hard to spot, and was only in a few scenes.

VIDEO SCORE: 4.5 OUT OF 5

THE BASICS: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The Limits of Control (2009) Blu-ray Review: The Basics

The audio was okay, it was pretty basic, and purposely older sounding I think. I didn't find anything amazing or bad about the sound, and dialogue was clean, which is always a positive for me.

AUDIO SCORE: 3.5 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.
