New to Blu: December 21 – 27


Bridget Jones’s Baby leads the Christmas Week releases with a bonny transfer that’s Home Theater Forum reckons is “sharp to a fault and very detailed in its depiction of facial features, hair, and clothes textures.

“The transfer also boasts strong colour and believable and appealing skin tones. Contrast has been consistently applied for a sterling picture, and black levels are very nice indeed.”

Another transfer that will leave you breathless is the horror movie, Don’t Breathe.

According to High-Def Digest, “The digitally sourced 2.40:1 1080p transfer may not be the most colourful one you’ve ever seen, but it’s playing with light and shadow and the sense of depth is what earns it some high marks.

“The front end of the film is absolutely beautiful.”

And DVD Talk says the audio is “just as strong” as the video. “Rear channels are used often to help build atmosphere and ambience not just with sound effect placement but by spreading out the score as well.

“The dialogue remains clear and audible throughout and the levels are perfectly balanced.” describes the 2.39:1 transfer of The Infiltrator as “a crisp, clear viewing experience, handling the limitations of the HD-shot feature.

Detail is superb, offering real power with close-ups, which pick up every pore and hair, while subtle performances choices are easily observed.”

And DVD Talk recommends the “jovial” commentary with star Bryan Cranston and director Brad Furman: “They include the obligatory raves on the case and get into scene breakdown and location choices, and there is a decent amount of production recall.”

Storks looks AMAZING and crystal clear as if straight from the digital tap,” reports Home Theater Shack.

“The animated film is awash with tons and tons of brightly lit colours that pop off the screen with neon pinks, bright oranges, deep yellows and almond tones.”

Once Upon a Time: The Complete Fifth Season‘s 1080p transfer dazzles,” says

“Beyond the occasional glimmer of aliasing and a smattering of very fine noise, the Blu-ray brings the programme to life with impressive vigour.”

Concurs DVD Talk: “The Blu-ray offers an impressive technical presentation and an assortment of extras. This release is worth owning for fans.”
