The Bride

Overview

The Frankenstein story gets a 1980s update with director Franc Roddam's monstrous vision in The Bride. This time rock legend Sting is the insane Dr. Frankenstein and Flashdance actress Jennifer Beals is the newly created mate for his monster (Clancy Brown). Featuring 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, Columbia has done a very nice job on this transfer. There is a minimal amount of grain present in the picture, and the colors and blacks are both bright and solid. Edge enhancement in the picture is kept very low, as is ...

Overview

The Frankenstein story gets a 1980s update with director Franc Roddam's monstrous vision in The Bride. This time rock legend Sting is the insane Dr. Frankenstein and Flashdance actress Jennifer Beals is the newly created mate for his monster (Clancy Brown). Featuring 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, Columbia has done a very nice job on this transfer. There is a minimal amount of grain present in the picture, and the colors and blacks are both bright and solid. Edge enhancement in the picture is kept very low, as is any shimmer or digital artifacting. Although not a perfect reference quality transfer, The Bride looks better than one might expect. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 in Spanish, English, French, and Portuguese. The Bride certainly might have benefited from a Dolby 5.1 remix, but as it stands, this audio track sounds very good. Sounds are directional (from front speakers) and dialogue is clear and concise without any distortion. Composer Maurice Jarre's lush score and the booming sound effects are also mixed very evenly. Also included are English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Thai, and Korean subtitles. The Bride has been fitted with a few extra features that makes this disc above average, including an audio commentary by the director. Also included are filmographies of stars Sting and Jennifer Beals, as well as theatrical trailers for The Bride, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. While this may not be the most jam-packed DVD on the market, The Bride still electrifies with good video/audio portions and some well-done extra features.
