My Name is Nobody (40th Anniversary Edition ) [Blu-Ray]

Director: Tonino Valerii

Cast: Terence Hill, Henry Fonda, Jean Martin

Release Date: Now Available on Blu-Ray For The First Time Ever

A Review By: Kevin Lovell

Film Rating: 9/10

Disc Rating: 7.5/10

Plot Summary:

A young, easygoing gunman (Hill) worships and competes with an old gunfighter (Fonda) who only wants to retire.

‘My Name Is Nobody’ tells the story of a stranger named Nobody (Terence Hill) who worms his way into the life of one of his heroes, the infamous mnin02Jack Beauregard (Henry Fonda) and while staying on his tale, continues to intervene in his life in order to try and push Beauregard towards what he feels should be his way into the history books as a true hero, regardless of how Beauregard may feel on the matter.

While I had never had the pleasure of seeing ‘My Name Is Nobody’ prior to this 40th Anniversary Edition (also marking its first time on Blu-Ray in gorgeous 1080p High mnin01Definition), I must say I absolutely loved it. From the infamous Sergio Leone, comes an incredibly entertaining and hilarious spaghetti western that should leave everyone with a constant smile on their face throughout. Terrence Hill and Henry Fonda are both magnificent and the chemistry between them is fantastic which really adds to this wonderful and fun film in a very positive way.

If you are a fan of ‘My Name Is Nobody’ you will certainly want to make sure and pick up a copy of the 40th Anniversary Blu-Ray, which marks the films first time available in pristine High Definition. If you (like myself) have never seen the movie, I would highly recommend giving it a shot, because it is truly an amazing gem of a film and one I can certainly see myself revisiting countless times in the future.

VIDEO:

The Blu-Ray release of ‘My Name Is Nobody features a full 1080p High Definition presentation utilizing the film’s original 2.35:1 Cinemascope Aspect Ratio. For a film forty years old, this Blu-Ray transfer looks absolutely stunning. Everything is sharp, smooth and detailed, while all of the lines, grain and wear from the original film stock are still present, leaving the original gritty feel of the film intact and looking better than it ever has before. While this Blu-Ray was my first viewing of the film (as noted prior) I have looked up some info and comparisons regarding versions of it and I must say that I am very impressed with this Blu-Ray video transfer. Fans of the film should be quite ecstatic about owning the film on Blu-Ray in pristine High Definition for the first time ever.

AUDIO:

The Blu-Ray release includes a 2.0 channel Dual-Mono DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack which really sounds quite fantastic. The films soundtrack is the most notable part of this lossless soundtrack and there were a number of moments where the soundtrack would truly put a smile on my face. All elements sound wonderful and the music sounds crisp and spot on. Everyone should quite enjoy this lossless soundtrack included on this 40th Anniversary Blu-Ray release.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Although it is the 40th Anniversary Edition, unfortunately no extras are included on the release, though this is to be expected as most IMAGE catalog titles are film-only versions. It’s just wonderful to see classics such as these making their way to Blu-Ray for the first time and the extremely reasonable price of the release(s) certainly doesn’t hurt either.

Film Rating: 9/10

Disc Rating: 7.5/10
