Tweet Feature Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio bring us the story of Howard Hughes, a young man with an inherited fortune and a drive to push the boundaries.
Behind closed doors however Howard Hughes has issues. A fear of disease and germs and an ever increasing case of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
However Martin Scorsese is the master at the biopic and his study of Howard Hughes is another masterclass in how to do it right.
We feel his passion, his fears, his psychological issues and that never ending drive of his. Everything is possible for this guy no matter his colleagues getting in his way, his financial parameters or the out of date sensibilities of the world around him.
I love the world Scorsese has made here and DiCaprio is the perfect lead for the project. The Aviator feels like it means a lot to everyone involved and somehow that bleeds into the film making it all the better but what of the Blu-ray treatment?
Does this Miramax disc suffer the same fate as the rest of the releases have so far. Hold your breath folks. Video For the first hour, all of The Aviator is really only in two tones: This stylistic choice makes for some odd visuals from golf courses with zero green in them to clubs that feel almost like they are underwater.
Of course this boosts reds and every single cast member seem to have piercing blue eyes. It does seem a bit odd at first and has always felt like something is wrong with the picture as opposed to a stylistic choice that makes sense but once that first hour is over the transfer here really comes to life.
Leaving behind the two-tones, the second half of the movie is a collection of vibrant screen popping colours than suddenly take this Blu-ray into beautiful places. Those missing greens of the first half suddenly feel perfect and alive, different coloured suits and costumes really bring the world to life and a little more modern feeling and little glimpse of reds glow off of the screen wherever they are dotted about.
Blacks are deep and give the shadowed areas of the frame look very good indeed. The image is grain free, has a very strong warmth to the colours on show and the more the film progresses the better it seems to get.
Dialogues, atmospherics, score everything, it all sits in front channels and this is really felt in the larger aeroplane sequences. Same can be said for the musical numbers from the Wainwright family.
The busy clubs never feel full and lively but instead quite confined despite there still being an atmosphere to the audio. Also bass levels vary from boosting the action to not really playing a part in the more heated arguments and they feel missed.
That said as I mentioned the track is still strong for the most part and the loud elements are impressive despite the lack of full on rear channel support. This is a tough one to call as a general wrap up. This worked for me but I was aware of what potentially could have made it better.
Scorsese is passionate and if anything makes me like the movie more than I already did. There are quite a few quiet moments in the second half of the film with only comments for certain moments but even so this is a fantastic track and a thorough insight into the film.

Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning biopic about the life of film-maker and aviation pioneer Howard Hughes from to , during which time he became a successful film producer and an aviation magnate while simultaneously growing more unstable due to severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Hughes’ less-than-normal lifestyle (an extreme case of obsessive-compulsive disorder) is also a major topic of discussion throughout the entire film and Scorsese doesn’t shy away from showing some of the youngster’s worst moments.
Martin Scorsese presents the story of freaky billionaire industrialist, Hollywood film mogul and playboy Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio), covering his life from the late s through the s.
The film suggests that Hughes' single-mindedness may have been fueled by an obsessive-compulsive disorder. "I certainly think that there needs to be some element of madness to create that kind of.
Each new Martin Scorsese film is greeted with the emotional commitment and fevered anticipation of a religious ceremony. But he has been for so long dubbed our "greatest living director" that we tend to forget when the string of oddly disappointing films that counter that statement began.
