Annie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Annie makes its Blu-ray debut with a faithful, but never flashy, 1080p transfer. The image is fairly soft in many places, occasionally flat, and never brilliantly colored. However, it's sturdy and consistent if nothing else. The image features a fair bit of film grain, not overwhelming but easily visible in most scenes. Detail ranges from average to near excellent. The sharper scenes -- particularly those in the second act when the action shifts to Daddy Warbucks' palatial estate -- deliver some stable, crisp textures around the home's interiors and exteriors alike. Facial and clothing close-ups are never extensively revealing, but the image captures well-defined lines where necessary and critical. Colors lack brilliance; the image has a slightly dim, somewhat worn-down and occasionally depressed appearance, notably in those dreary and very flat and dark orphanage interiors. Even in brighter scenes, the most brilliant reds (Annie's dress, for instance) don't pop off the screen, but longtime Annie fans will appreciate the stability and internet accuracy of the palette. Black levels are quite good but not particularly dazzling in the film's bookends, the dark opening orphanage scene and the end nighttime chase. On the flip side, flesh tones appear even, never drifting too far towards either an unnaturally pale or excessively red/orange shading. There's a bit of noise in spots but no excess blocking, banding, edge enhancement, or other unwanted image-destorying uglies of note. Overall, this is a very nice transfer. It's not modern-flashy, ultra-bright, or razor-sharp, but it does appear faithful and true to the source.


Annie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Annie features a good, not great, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Music is the highlight, and the track does dazzle in that department from the moment the Columbia Lady appears on-screen. The presentation is big, full, accurate, clear, and enveloping, with light but critical surround support and just the right amount of bass. The low end does get a little overly heavy at times, notably during the song and dance routine when Annie first arrives at the Warbucks mansion, but otherwise the musical numbers are quite splendid, sonically. Light ambience is audible in some busy city exteriors, though the track lacks sufficient realism and surround muscle to suck audiences into depression-era New York. What might have been the film's most potent sound effect -- the humming and heavy presence of the auto-copter -- instead plays depressingly weak and muffled, absent the sort of potency and big movie sound that would have greatly enhanced the scenes in which it appears, chiefly its arrival at the White House and its role in the third act chase sequence. Otherwise, the picture is largely dialogue-oriented. The spoken word is clear, precise, and center-focused, generally. There are a few instances of muffled speech, words coming across as shallow and detached. Such is the exception to the rule. As with the video presentation, Annie's soundtrack isn't dynamic or particularly memorable, but most of the tunes sound great and the other supportive elements rate as passable.
