A Trip to the Moon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Georges Melies' A Trip to the Moon arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Flicker Alley.

The restoration truly is quite remarkable. Frankly, the depth and clarity the restored hand-colored version conveys at times are difficult to rationalize because if one sees the documentary film by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange where the damaged negatives are shown one will rightfully question whether such outstanding results are indeed possible (see screencapture #1). The colors are also wonderfully well balanced. What impressed me the most, however, was the stability of the image. Yes, there are some frame skips (and keep in mind that this is how Melies did some of his 'special effects', with frame overlapping), but the film is indeed notably fluid and free of the massive stability issues silent films are often suffer from. Remarkable restoration.

The screencaptures included with our review appear in the following order:

1. A Trip to the Moon, restored hand-colored version: 1-9.
2. A Trip to the Moon, B&W version: 10-14.
3. Astronomer's Dream, B&W: 15-16.
4. The Eclipse, B&W: 17-19.

Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content.


A Trip to the Moon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are seven audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc. Each is listed below:

1. A Trip to the Moon, restored hand-colored version, Air soundtrack: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
2. A Trip to the Moon, B&W version, Robert Israel Orchestral score: Dolby Digital 2.0.*
3. A Trip to the Moon, B&W version, actors and accompaniment by Frederick Hodges: LPCM 2.0.
4. A Trip to the Moon, B&W version, piano accompaniment by Frederick Hodges: LPCM 2.0.
5. The Astronomer's Dream: LPCM 2.0.
6. The Eclipse: LPCM 2.0.
7. The Extraordinary Voyage, directed by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange: English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1.

Air's soundtrack and the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track are both excellent. There a is wide range of nuanced dynamics which I think will surprise quite a few viewers (or at least those who have not yet seen Coeur Fidèle and The Phantom Carriage). Clarity and fluidity are also outstanding.

I also quite liked Frederick Hodges' piano accompaniment, though I have to admit that viewing the B&W version of A Trip to the Moon with it is indeed an entirely different experience.

*My check disc is also missing the original spoken English narration by Georges Melies.
