Austin Powers Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The production merits of the Austin titles improved with each successive film, translating to slightly better picture quality in The Spy Who Shagged Me and Goldmember compared to the International Man of Mystery, although signs of noise reduction compromise the quality of Goldmember. While none of the BDs rise to the level of reference quality, they each feature vibrant colors and significantly better resolution than their NTSC counterparts on DVD. It is much easier to pick out details in Austin's fab wardrobe and other textures in 1080p. The definition is good and it certainly makes the babes look shaggadelic. Unfortunately, some digital noise reduction appears to have been applied to Goldmember, which hurts the detail. Perhaps postprocessing effects were used in this latest film. But none of the Austin titles were going to win awards for lifelike definition by virtue of the way they were originally shot, so it's a bit like criticizing a drink for being wet.

One of the main draws of the BD set is to see the film that started the Austin Powers sensation, International Man of Mystery in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio for the first time on home video. The previous DVD versions conformed to other ratios in their "full screen" and "wide screen" versions. The latter version of the DVD had a 2:1 aspect ratio. As with each movie in the set, the VC-1 transfer of International Man of Mystery appears mostly noise-free, with mostly small film grain visible. Some scenes show more prominent grain, but nothing too obtrusive--it will not upset even the stodgiest grain haters. The colors, while bright, do not appear artificially pumped up and there are no signs of digital postproduction or noise reduction anywhere, except for Goldmember, which shows some signs of all of the above. The good detail and signs of a quality transfer are apparent in both light and darker scenes, and on dynamically complex sequences like the launch of Dr. Evil's "Bob's Big Boy" spacecraft. No signs of artifacting or pixelation. The slightly improved production quality of The Spy Who Shagged Me and cleaner, somewhat more detailed picture is worth noting. Even Goldmember clean and the colors are vibrant, but some depth has been sacrificed in the postproduction work and/or DNRing. It's just as well, because the film really isn't as fresh or humorous as its prequels. The video has some minor problems, but it does not hold back the overall enjoyment of the set.


Austin Powers Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Like the video (except for the Goldmember processing hiccup), the audio also gets a bit better--and a touch more immersive--with each successive film in the trilogy. The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 tracks on each deliver convincing dialog, effects and music that has just the slightest hint of digital veneer. Since music figures prominantly into many scenes, it is important to acknowledge the strong LFE content and linear thrust of the dynamics. From the flutes in the theme song of International Man of Mystery to the horns and percussion, the highs are nice and extended and the midrange is lush without getting syrupy. I would have liked a bit more air separating the instruments that comes with the greatest recordings and higher sampling rates, but that was not to be found here. Regardless, it is an audiophile quibble. Music aside, the ambient and surround noises keep the overall experience more immersive than any other comedy I've encountered. Compared to a production like Young Frankstein, all three films' audio tracks (and their video quality while we're at it) is far, far superior. No one should expect the Austin set to deliver a Master & Commander surround experience, but it doesn't have to. It's groovy, baby, just the way it is.
