Video: How Does The Disc Look?
Driving Miss Daisy arrive on Blu-ray with a solid 1.85:1 1080p presentation. The transfer print utilized is smooth and clear, with vibrant colors that really bring this visually restrained motion picture to life. Blacks are solid with very sharp contrast, which increases detail considerably. Virtually absent is all the noise that marred previous DVD releases of the movie. Occasionally I noticed some minor edge enhancement in a few fuzzy shots, which keeps this from being a true 5-star transfer, but it looks so good it's hard to complain too much.
Audio: How Does The Disc Sound?
The DTS- HD 2.0 Master Audio sound mix here is perfectly fine, just not very involving. Dialogue has been nicely recorded with decent dynamic range. However, even stereo separation across the front channels feels a little fake. Effects sometimes just bleed and blur together, and surround use is mediocre. The sparse music and songs are fairly well-rendered, but this mix is just never very dynamic. Low ends are also flat. Not terrible by any means, but for such a intimate film like this, a stronger 5.1 remix with real ambiance and envelopment might have helped.
English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles are included.
