Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel

 (2009)

Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Chipmunk singing sensations Alvin, Simon and Theodore are back for an encore in this hilarious "squeakquel" packed with more action and more nutty fun for the whole family! When a concert mishap lands Dave in the hospital, the Chipmunks take a break from superstardom and enroll in school to fit in with kids their age. But they soon face some stiff competition when they meet the Chipettes - a beautiful, talented trio of chipmunks discovered by Ian, the boys' evil ex-manager. Featurettes. Subtitles: English, French & Spanish; "'Munk Music Machine"; "Music Mania".

Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Think of it this way, parents: Squeakquel may give you dreams about hunting chipmunks for sport, but at least it looks terrific on Blu-ray, thanks to a solid 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer courtesy of 20th Century Fox. The movie is crisp, ultra colorful and, despite the CGI stars, undeniably filmic, with a thin layer of pleasingly untouched grain covering each frame. Clarity is strong, showing an appreciable amount of skin and clothing texture on the live-action actors, and finely rendering the 'munks not-quite-cartoonish, not-quite-photorealistic fur and costumes. (The Chipettes' sequined dresses look especially vivid.) Not to be outdone, the film's color scheme is incredibly vibrant, with bright, supersaturated primaries—see Alvin and Simon's hoodies—and a slightly warm cast, with highlights that are closer to cream than white. Contrast is nice and tight and black levels are dark and stable, with no crush and plenty of revealing shadow delineation. The encode is excellent as well, as I didn't spy any excess noise or compression-related issues. The only thing that eagle-eyed viewers might spot is that the grain that's layered over the CGI to blend it in with the rest of the picture doesn't always match perfectly. There are also a few moments when the chipmunks stand out somewhat awkwardly from their surroundings, but I can't really dock the transfer for that. Overall, a real winner here from Fox.


Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Ah, the dreaded pitch shift, raising voices several octaves and making mindless pop songs sound even more grating and infectious than they already are. I've been absentmindedly humming the theme song that plays over the disc's menu all day, and basically slapping myself on the forehead every time I catch myself doing it. If you can get past the fact that super-high chipmunk voices are always going to be somewhat obnoxious, The Squeakquel's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is pretty good, though the rear channels don't get nearly as much play as they could've had. Seeing how the last act of the movie is loaded with action film theatrics—helicopter rides and minibike chases—I expected the audio to really kick in and engage, but aside from a few standout cross-channel movements, this track remains entrenched up front and center. Of course, some of the music gets panned into the rears, along with some extremely quiet ambience during the more dialogue driven scenes, but there's not much in the way of outright immersion. Still, the track has dynamic heft a-plenty, and the various chipmunk-reworked pop tunes sound great in a perverse, I don't want to admit it but I kind of have to way. Just be sure to barricade yourself in your hopefully soundproofed den when the kids decide to blast this one at high volumes.
