Rough Night Blu-ray review

Sep 15, 2017- Permalink

Rough Night, now available as a Blu-ray release, confirms the old adage that it’s never good when a stripper dies during your bachelorette party. The comedy stars Scarlett Johansson, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Zoë Kravitz and Kate McKinnon.

The AVC-encoded 1080p transfer is presented in the theatrical release’s 2.39:1 aspect ratio. Shot digitally, the transfer is very good with only a small amount of noise noticeable in darker scenes. The colour palette around Miami pops, whether it’s the sparkling blue waters or the neon signs of the night life. Details, from people’s faces to clothing and structure textures are sharp. Black levels are deep.

Moving from the eyes to the ears, Rough Night’s disc comes with an English, French, Italian and Portuguese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtracks and a Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 track. Subtitles are available in English, English SDH, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. Whether it’s a campaign office or a nightclub, the surround channels immerse you in the environment and the low frequency obviously gets a workout with the thumping bass on the dance floor. Dialogue is clear.

Besides a digital copy code, the extras include the usual deleted scenes and bloopers. There’s also a sing-along, the cast improvising lines and talking about each other.

Rough Night isn’t the type of comedy that will go down in the history of the genre, but if you’re a huge fan of one of the cast you’ll probably add it to your collection for completeness.
