Father Figures appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. Very few concerns cropped up here.
Sharpness was excellent. From start to finish, the flick presented crisp, concise images without any issues connected to softness.
Jagged edges and shimmering didn’t occur, and edge enhancement remained absent. Source flaws also failed to present any problems, as the movie offered a clean image.
In terms of colors, the film favored the usual mix of teal and amber. I thought the hues looked fine, as they were solid within the design parameters.
Blacks seemed deep and tight, while shadows were generally good. A few shots appeared somewhat thick, but low-light images were usually pretty nice. I thought this was a consistently high-quality presentation.
As for the film’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, it seemed satisfactory. It favored the usual “comedy mix” and didn’t present chances for the soundscape to explode.
We did find a few broader scenes – such as on planes or by the ocean – but the track usually opted for stereo music and general environmental material. Though these didn’t seem exciting, they opened up the piece in a satisfying manner.
I thought audio quality appeared positive. Speech seemed distinctive and natural, with no rough tones or other issues.
Score and songs displayed clear, warm music, and effects functioned well. Those elements were reasonably realistic and full throughout the movie, so this ended up as a low-key but workable mix.
The Blu-ray includes only minor extras, and we get a Gag Reel. It runs four minutes, 26 seconds and provides some of the usual goofs/giggles, but it tosses in some alternate lines, too. Those make it more useful than expected.
10 Deleted Scenes last a total of 21 minutes, nine seconds. These offer a few substantial moments, like a flashback to the twins’ younger days as well as some bits that flesh out supporting characters. I can’t claim any of these should’ve made the movie, but at least they’re more worthwhile than the average deleted footage.
The disc opens with ads for Game Night, 12 Strong, and the Blade Runner: Revelations game. No trailer for Figures appears here.
A second disc presents a DVD copy of Figures. It includes the deleted scenes but not the gag reel.
With a good cast in tow, Father Figures boasted comedic potential, all of which it squandered. Packed with cheap jokes and absurd sequences, the movie struggles to generate any entertainment value. The Blu-ray boasts excellent picture along with decent audio and minor supplements. This becomes a waste of talent.
