Every Day appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The movie delivered a good but not great presentation.
Sharpness worked fine most of the time, though some inconsistencies occurred, and those left the image a wee bit soft on occasion. Still, most of the flick appeared pretty accurate and concise.
I saw no issues with jagged edges or moiré effects, and edge haloes remained absent. Print flaws also failed to interfere with the presentation.
Colors opted for a fairly standard sense of orange and teal. The hues tended to be a bit lackluster, but they fleshed out as intended.
Blacks were reasonably dark and deep, while shadows seemed acceptable, though low-light shots could come across as a little murky. Overall, this was a more than adequate image.
Expect a less than enthralling DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack from Every Day, as it lacked a lot of spark. Granted, I don’t expect much zing from a teen drama like this, but the mix still could’ve been more involving than it was.
This meant the track used music well but effects lacked a lot of immersiveness. The audio focused heavily on the front speakers, and even scenes with the potential to become more engrossing – parties, thunderstorms – failed to broaden to the surrounds in a particularly effective manner.
At least audio quality worked fine, with speech that consistently remained natural and concise. While effects didn’t get to do much, they still felt accurate and lacked distortion or other issues.
Music became the most satisfactory aspect of the track, so songs and score showed nice range and dimensionality. Given the movie’s scope, this didn’t become a bad mix, but it seemed pretty ordinary.
When we head to extras, we find four brief promotional featurettes. These include “Love Is Love” (1:13), “Every Day People” (2:03), “An A By Any Other Name” (2:12) and “Book to Film Adaptation” (1:31).
Across these, we hear from director Michael Sucsy, author David Levithan, producer Anthony Bregman, and actors Angourie Rice, Debby Ryan, Justice Smith, Maria Bello, Jacob Batalon and Owen Teague. They look at story/characters as well as aspects of the novel. They’re superficial fluff.
16 Deleted Scenes fill a total of 20 minutes, 16 seconds. Many of these extend/add to existing sequences, but a few fresh bits appear, such as one in which a female “A” hits on Justin to prompt Rhiannon to break up with him. This means some of the clips seem more interesting than usual.
The disc opens with ads for Tomb Raider, Ocean’s 8, Rampage, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, The 15:17 to Paris and Ready Player One. No trailer for Day appears here.
With a clever premise and reasonably solid execution, Every Day brings a surprisingly involving teen drama. Though it slips at times, it remains largely likable and engaging. The Blu-ray brings decent picture and audio along with minor supplements. I liked the film more than expected.
