Editorial Reviews

Goodfellas (DVD)

Gangsters never refer to themselves as gangsters. They are made-men, wiseguys or Goodfellas. Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese exposes the fascinating, mysterious and violent underworld of New York's Mafia families through the life of insider Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) as he rises from smalltime thug to mobster under the guidance of Jimmy Conway (Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) in this searing, epic crime drama based on the chilling true-life best seller Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi.

(I've rearranged this review in descending chronological order to make it easier for people who are looking for information on the most recent Blu-ray edition of the film.)

**UPDATE No. 2 - 6/16/2015**

"I don't care if they come out with the deluxe 25th Anniversary 3D Super-BluRay Scratch 'n Sniff Edition, I'm not biting." --Me, 2010

Well hello again, folks, I guess it's time to eat my words. I was going to abstain from buying this new 25th Anniversary release, I really, really was. But then the rumors started. A new remastering of the film personally supervised by Martin Scorsese. A freshly remastered DTS-HD audio track. An anniversary screening at the Tribeca Film Festival to show off the movie's facelift. I scoffed. I grumbled.

And boy, was I wrong to do so.

This is the presentation of the film cinephiles have been wanting for years. Warner Brothers has produced a superlative Blu-ray (the original iconic poster design is gone and replaced by a garishly colored new cover, but we've seen the original plenty), spread over two discs to preserve picture quality (movie on disc one, extras on disc two). Included in the package is a nice booklet with production stills, an essay by Mr. Scorsese, and instructions on how to redeem the Ultraviolet Digital Copy (which I've always found needlessly complicated, but that's an issue for another review).

The original negative has been scanned in at 4K for this release-- don't worry if you don't know what any of that stuff means, just know that this is the best Goodfellas has ever looked. Details and colors pop like never before. (And personal pet peeve addressed, that stupid line running down Robert DeNiro's face during the scene at Henry's girlfriend's apartment is GONE.

Goodfellas has long been one of my favorite movies. I've watched it many times since I saw it in the theater. I've seen it on tape, on laserdisc, on the original "flipper" DVD and the remastered anamorphic DVD, and now, Blu-Ray Disc.

I'm happy to report that the Blu-Ray is a significant improvement over the remastered DVD. The picture is brighter, the colors are more vivid, and many scenes have much more detail and clarity. Of course, the overall picture is much sharper.

Goodfellas is not the kind of movie that is a showcase for high-resolution video, however. It has a lot of dark indoor scenes; very little takes place outdoors (something I never noticed before). I noticed some graininess, which has a lot to do with how Scorcese shot the picture. It's just more noticeable in the higher resolution.

There are some minor problems with the audio in one scene. The dialogue drops in volume and then jumps back up in the following scene. Other than that, the audio is fine, although I would have liked a more aggressive surround mix, at least in the musical selections. However, there's not much use of the surrounds here.

Also, at one point there's a vertical line halfway across the screen. Why this wasn't cleaned up is mystery to me; it lasts for about fifteen seconds. Admittedly this is a very minor problem, but with expensive new technology flaws of this kind stand out more than they would on tape or standard DVD.

If you're a fan of the movie and are considering upgrading to the Blu-Ray, I'd highly recommend it. It's not an eye-popping effects movie to begin with, so this disc isn't the first one to reach for if you want to show off your system. But it's probably the best way to watch the movie.

Goodfellas is either the BEST movie ever made about organized crime, or the 2nd best. Some would say it is tied. (the other film being, of course, Godfather II) I have watched it at least once a year, EVERY year since it was first released on home video back in the VHS days. I love it and couldn't wait to see and hear this new 25th Anniversary 4K Scan.

With that said, this review will focus on the audio and video portions of the product as well as the packing and other extras included. The film comes packaged in a very nice hard/sturdy slipcover that holds both the 2 BD discs (in a very cheap eco case!) and the included booklet. The booklet itself is hard bound and extremely nice. Leaving Joe Pesci off the cover amounts to sacrilege, no question about it. I am at a loss to explain it. Bit rate for the transfer lingers in the low to mid 30's and I could see no visible compression issues of any kind.

I REALLY wanted this new disc to be perfect or close to perfect. And guess what? It ALMOST is......

Picture Quality has improved many times over from both the previous Blu Ray and HD-DVD versions and of course wipes the floor with any of the DVD releases.

The two main improvements are color rendering, both in grading/timing and overall saturation levels, and sharpness. MY only real complaint regarding color comes from one scene in particular when the saturation is just way WAY too high and causes both smearing and actual flaring and noise. This occurs right as Henry crosses the street to have it out with Karen's neighbor in his driveway. Everything is just plain NEON at that point. Thankfully it comes and goes and does not return but it took me out of the movie for a few moments. Everything else was very well balanced color wise.
