I wanted a little bit of a Bluray enhancement “bump” from the just-released Warner Home Video Bluray of Mike HodgesGet Carter (’71)…and I didn’t get it. That’s because the WHV technicians who did the remastering said “to hell with it…this is a gritty, low-budget ’70s film, and the best we can do is basically replicate the look of the DVD but with enough of a bit-rate upgrade so it’ll look suitably filled-out on a 60- or 70-inch screen.” What I was looking for was a little sweetening — the kind of tasteful DNR finessing that the guys at Universal Home Video would have applied if Carter had been their film. The Carter Bluray looks fine, mind. It just looks the same as the 2000 DVD, and I wanted more than that.
