Crash isn’t a movie I found all that great though my interest was mainly for some of the controversy and honestly as strange as the “plot” and characters were, it’s not that out of bounds at least nowadays.

Warner Bros. Studios Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.


After her husband dies from a heart attack in the midst of an affair, Sue Buttons (ALLISON JENNEY), an underappreciated suburban wife, gets a taste of local celebrity after she buries him and then embarks on a search to find him. She quickly finds herself in over her head, dodging cops (REGINA HALL), criminals (AWKAFINA, CLIFTON COLLINS JR.) and local reporters all aiming to uncover the truth. After being overlooked for so long, Sue goes to exaggerated lengths to prolong her 15 minutes of fame and keep the truth from coming out.



This release comes with a matted slip cover and a redemption code for the Digital HD copy. No features were included, however.


VIDEO – 4/5

Warner Bros. releases Breaking News in Yuba County onto Blu-ray, presented with a 2.38 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. While hardly outstanding, with detail being modestly sharp, overall the picture looks above average though not quite on par with most new releases. However, given the more comedic tone, colors are bright and there’s no noticeable artifacting or other flaws.

AUDIO – 4¼/5

The disc comes with an adequate DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which is serviceable for the kind of movie this is, where the majority of the audio is made up of dialogue and some okay depth when it came to Jeff Beal’s mundane score.





Check out some more 1080p screen caps by going to page 2. Please note, these do contain spoilers.
