Game Night appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. This became a pleasant presentation.
Sharpness was always positive. Virtually no softness crept into any shots, so the image remained tight and well-defined at all times.
I noticed no issues with shimmering or jaggies, and edge haloes failed to appear. Print flaws also failed to mar the presentation.
Game Night went with a teal-influenced palette that sprinkled in a fair amount of amber as well. Within the movie’s color design, the tones seemed solid.
Blacks were dark and deep, while shadows demonstrated nice smoothness. This was a consistently satisfying image.
As for the DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix of Game Night, it showed scope generally typical of the comedy soundfield. That said, the film’s action orientation occasionally allowed it to open up in a satisfying manner.
These added a lot of immersiveness, as did a few other exteriors, but those instances remained somewhat infrequent. The mix did use the score in a broad, engaging manner, though, and the whole package fit together smoothly.
Audio quality seemed good. Speech was distinctive and natural, without edginess or other issues.
Music seemed warm and lush, while effects showed nice clarity and accuracy. Again, nothing about the mix dazzled, but it suited the story and kicked into high gear when necessary.
A featurette called An Unforgettable Evening runs three minutes, 48 seconds and presents comments from production designer Michael Corenblith and actors Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Sharon Horgan, Billy Magnussen, Kylie Bunbury and Lamorne Morris.
They touch on a mix of production topics like cast/performance, locations, and the like. We get a couple of decent thoughts but “Evening” is way too short to give us much substance.
Next comes a Gag Reel. It fills six minutes, 48 seconds with the usual goofs and giggles. It seems decent and nothing more.
The disc opens with ads for Life of the Party, Ocean’s 8, Paddington 2, Batman Ninja and Rampage. No trailer for Game Night appears here.
A second disc provides a DVD copy of Game. It includes “Evening” but lacks the gag reel.
At no point does Game Night threaten to become an innovative, creative comedy. However, it delivers the laughs, as a lot of fun situations and a terrific cast milks the tale for a great deal of amusement. The Blu-ray brings us excellent picture along with good audio but it lacks notable supplements. Game Night delivers a hilarious romp.
