Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked

 (2011)

Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked Blu-ray delivers great video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Chipmunks ahoy! It's a tidal wave of toe-tapping music and unfurgettable fun for the whole family as Alvin and the Chipmunks return in their greatest adventure yet! While on vacation aboard a luxury cruise liner, Alvin, Simon, Theodore and the Chipettes can't help rocking the boat with their unique brand of 'munk mischief. But things get really squeaky when the gang winds up stranded on a remote island - and they soon discover their new tropical playground is not as deserted as it seems. Subtitles: English, French, Spanish. "Munk Music & Dance Machine", "Munking Movies in Paradise".

For more about Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked and the Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked Blu-ray release, see Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like it's predecessor, The Squeakquel, Chipwrecked washes up on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's bright, crisp, ultra- colorful, and all-around easy on the eyes. Given the amount of CGI that has to be interposed into live-action environments, you'd assume these movies would be shot digitally, but they've all actually been 35mm productions. You'll notice an even layer of grain over every shot, and though it's not always seamless, it's clear that care has been taken to add back film noise over the CG inserts to make them blend better. The level of clarity in the image stops well short of stunning, but there's plenty of high definition detail on display, both in the textures of the actors' clothing and faces and the fur and costumes of the CGI chipmunks. (I seems to me like the image might be kept slightly soft intentionally so the 'munks don't stand out as much.) Not surprisingly--this is a kid's movie, after all--color is vivid and cheery, with the chipmunks' outfits popping nicely off the green jungle foliage. And while there are times when black levels seem a bit washed out, contrast is even-keeled, with no crushed shadows or overblown highlights. I didn't spot any blatant compression-related issues, either.


Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Let's set aside the fact that shrill, pitch-shifted chipmunk voices are unavoidably ear-grating. Otherwise, Chipwrecked's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track sounds great, with some surprisingly beefy effects, frequent real channel engagement, and consistent clarity. I knocked The Squeakquel down a mark in the audio department for not using the surround speakers as often as it could've, but Chipwrecked mostly remedies that wrong. Along with ocean-y ambience--foghorns and seagulls, lapping waves and the crash of a waterfall--the rears broadcast all kinds of directional effects, usually related to chipmunk hijinks. Alvin swings on a vine through the space behind your head. A volcano blasts, sending chunks of rocky debris spraying in every direction. There are various swooshes and cross-channel movements. It's all handled well, and the effects have plenty of punch and depth. (Especially that erupting volcano.) And then, of course, there's the chipmunk-ified pop music, which sounds as good as it's going to considering how processed it is. My sole concern is that sometimes it's difficult to make out what the chipmunks are actually singing, since their voices are so thin and high and have a tendency to get buried somewhat in the mix. Otherwise, no problems here. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles, along with an English Descriptive Audio track and Spanish and French Dolby Digital 5.1 dubs.
