My Cousin Vinny
My Cousin Vinny looks great on Blu Ray. The transfer is clear enough that a good deal of the scenes have that “you are there” feel. Good scenes have minimal grain so you can see all the detail. Less fortunate ones have digital speckles, like they’re struggling to keep up, but that just makes you root for the underdog of a simple comedy in the world of visually spectacular Blu Rays. I’d rather see that than a dumpy transfer.
On Blu-Ray: My Cousin Vinny
The courtroom is actually the most speckled setting. It’s a bit hazy so it drowns out some of the polish. Town exteriors and interiors have lush colors and rustic settings that show up nicely.
There’s a lot of detail too. Remember how dirty Vinny’s car and suits get? You’ll see all that detail. His shiny flamboyant clothes look good too, shiny leather and sprayed up hair. Prison is gritty. There’s more diversity of settings than you may remember from 15 years ago, so Blu Ray is a nice way to revisit My Cousin Vinny.
