Unforgettable appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 1.85:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The movie came with a solid transfer.
Overall delineation looked good. A few interiors tended to be a smidgen soft, but the majority of the flick delivered appropriate definition. I saw no issues with jaggies or shimmering, and the image also lacked edge haloes or print flaws.
Like most modern thrillers, Unforgettable opted for a heavily teal palette, with some amber tossed in for good measure. While predictable, the disc replicated the hues in an appropriate manner. Blacks seems dark and dense, while shadows were usually fine, though a smattering of shots appeared a smidgen too thick. Overall, I felt pleased with this presentation.
Though not quite as good, the movie’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack suited the material. As with most melodramas of this sort, the soundscape went heavy on atmospherics and music, and those added impact to the proceedings. Occasional scenes boasted more active involvement – such as during a thunderstorm – and these moments turned the mix into a reasonably broad setting.
Audio quality worked fine, with concise, natural dialogue. Music showed strong range and warmth, while effects appeared accurate and full. This became a perfectly satisfactory mix for a thriller.
As we move to extras, we begin with an audio commentary from director Denise Di Novi. She presents a running, screen-specific look at story/characters, cast and performances, sets and locations, music and related domains.
Expect a pretty lackluster commentary from Di Novi. While she fleshes out some filmmaking elements in a reasonable manner, she often tends to simply offer annotated narration of the story. We get occasional insights but not much substance from this mediocre chat.
One Deleted Scene appears, and it lasts two minutes, six seconds. It gives us a little more of the Julia/David relationship but nothing I’d call important.
We can watch the deleted scene with or without commentary from Di Novi. She tells us a little about the sequence as well as why she cut it. Di Novi provides some useful info.
Reclaiming What’s Yours: Making Unforgettable runs 10 minutes, nine seconds and features Di Novi, writer Christina Hodson, producer Alison Greenspan, and actors Rosario Dawson, Katherine Heigl, Cheryl Ladd, and Geoff Stults. “Yours” discusses story/characters, cast and performances, and themes. This offers a fluffy promo piece without much substance.
The disc opens with ads for Dunkirk, Wonder Woman (2017), The House, Batman and Harley Quinn and Blade Runner 2049.
A second disc presents a DVD copy of Unforgettable. It includes the commentary but lacks the other extras.
Successful producer Denise Di Novi leaps to the director’s chair for 2017’s Unforgettable and flops. Despite what its title promises, the movie gives us a tedious, predictable dud of a thriller that will leave your memory the second the credits roll. The Blu-ray provides very good picture with suitable audio and passable supplements. Unforgettable winds up as a sub-mediocre film.
