Video: How Does The Disc Look?
This 1080p transfer is lovely, punchy and impressive. The film-like quality of the image is amazing. Colors leap off the screen and are perfectly rendered, with no noise, smearing or oversaturation. Black levels are extraordinarily rich and deep, contrast is dead-on and detail quality is stunning for a twenty year old film. The source print is ultra clean, with blemishes, nicks and scratches all but absent. Even the minimal edge enhancement that was an issue with the movie's last DVD edition has been remedied on high-def nicely. Grain is also handled deftly, lending the movie a lived-in glow it wears proudly.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
This subtle, effective DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix also serves the film expertly. There isn't a great deal of a LFE channel here in the mix, but when present, it's excellent. Stereo separation and imaging across the front soundstage is good with both tracks, as is dialogue which sounds natural and well-anchored in the center channel, and ADR is nearly seamless. No major complaints of any kind. Dive in.
A French DTS 5.1 track is included, as are English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
