Anatomy / Anatomy 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Anatomy
Score: 3.0/5.0


Anatomy's Blu-ray transfer probably won't please all that many fans. While it looks good enough in general terms -- detail and color are fine -- it'll push away grain haters while anti-edge enhancement folks will want to steer clear. Indeed, grain is fairly heavy, but at the same time there's no signs of unwarranted scrubbing. Details, then, remain quite sharp, showing all sorts of facial textures, clothing lines, and various human body internals with strong clarity. Likewise, the general sharpness, stability, and resolution aid in defining crisp background details. Colors are well balanced. The palette is fairly vibrant with only a few lower light indoor scenes that look a little more dim than they might should. Bright outdoor shots fare best, but even the cooler anatomy lab interiors show off some nice, natural shades. Skin tones and black levels never stray too far from where they should be. There are a few random spots of wear-and-tear, but the transfer's biggest technical flaw comes in the form of excess edge enhancement that leaves many a character and object with a thick halo around the edges. It's fairly constant and quite the eyesore, a shame considering the movie otherwise looks rather good.

Anatomy 2
Score: 4.0/5.0


Anatomy 2's Blu-ray transfer looks a good deal better than Anatomy. Gone is the excess edge enhancement; rather than destroying most every scene, it's very light and sporadic here. Grain is also not quite as pronounced, but the image never takes on that undesirable "scrubbed" appearance. On the contrary, details are quite nice, revealing positive skin and clothing textures while capturing with some sharpness and good clarity the many diverse backgrounds in the film, from bright hospital rooms to dark rooftops. Color balance is fine, with a good primary palette that never bleeds, fades to excess, or appears too bright. Red scrubs and blue hospital sheets look particularly good. Black levels are stable, and flesh tones appear natural. This isn't a showstopper transfer, but it's rock-solid for a cheap catalogue release of a smaller movie.


Anatomy / Anatomy 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Anatomy
Score: 3.0/5.0


Anatomy's only lossless option is the English language DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The original German track is relegated to lossy 5.1 status. Fans are sure to be disappointed. However, the film was released theatrically in the United States with that dub track as its primary, so the decision is understandable, particularly considering the film's release as a budget title (the inclusion of the German track, then, almost feels like a bonus). The dub is rather typical, a serviceable listen but nothing more. Dialogue sounds rather detached, unnatural, certainly not up there with something like Das Boot which might be the finest dub work on home video (and another German to English one at that). Music, to begin, plays smoothly and clearly, with a positive surround presence. Later musical elements -- such as a pop song that also plays early in the film -- lack energy, though not to the extreme. Some heavier effects enjoy adequate stage presence, such as the rumbly train carrying the students to Heidelberg. There are some basic crashes and other Horror/Thriller sonic signatures at play, all of which enjoy good, basic elements such as firm presence, vigor, and clarity. The dubbed dialogue comes through well enough, though certainly it can be a bit jarring. The German track feels a bit more balanced, though not always quite as clear. Dialogue comes through very evenly and naturally. There's a greater sense of real space in places -- compare and contrast with the English track the first anatomy class scene at the beginning of the film -- and many of the effects play with a bit more of a natural presence. It's not quite as aggressive and loud all the time, and it's not lossless, but this track, with the included English subtitles, is definitely the way to go.

Anatomy 2
Score: 3.5/5.0


Unlike Anatomy, Anatomy 2's sole lossless option is the original German presentation, here offered in the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 variety. However, there is no English dub track. English subtitles, then, are forced. Selecting either of the optional subtitle options displays two sets on the screen simultaneously, one on the top and the other at the bottom. The German lossless soundtrack is of good quality. It's well balanced and suitably aggressive, yielding, at the same time, solid clarity and placement. Musical delivery is average; it's well spaced and flows easily into the stage. There are a few good little added effects, such as positive and spacious dialogue reverberation throughout a fairly empty lecture hall. Bass, when the low end really kicks in, hits hard and rumbles deep with no excess rattling. Dialogue plays clearly and firmly from the center. This is a fine all-around track from Mill Creek/Sony.
