Avatar Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

High definition home video enthusiasts—myself included—collectively held their mouths agape in awe when Avatar debuted on Blu-ray in April. "Reference quality. Demo worthy…nothing short of superlative in nearly every objectively measurable or subjectively eye-balled category," was my initial slack-jawed judgment, and I'm sure many of you agreed. You'll be glad to know, then, that despite the addition of 16-minutes of new high definition footage, the quality of the image hasn't dropped in the slightest. I popped in my copy of the standalone disc to spot check several scenes, and I really couldn't make out any negligible differences. Fine detail is just as crisp. Color is just as vivid. ("Eye-popping, with deep jungle greens, phosphorescent purples, bright orange bursts of fire, and, of course, the Na'vi's Smurf blue, all contrasted against the bleak fluorescence and gunmetal grays of the human military base.") Neither are there any noticeable fluctuations in black levels, contrast, or compression noise. I'm sure there are citizens of Internetsville planning on going frame-by-frame through all three hours of the film to parse out minute disparities, but to these well-meaning folks I say, one, just sit back and enjoy the show, and two, there are resources to help you get through this addiction. Help is out there.

Kidding aside, you'd be hard pressed to find any inconsistencies in the picture between the two equally fantastic-looking releases, so the real question, now—and this is entirely subjective—is whether or not Avatar's visuals still have the power to impress as much as they did seven months ago. Of course, I can only answer for myself, and I'll just say this: The live-action footage is not quite as stunning as I remembered it—it's a little soft and too video-ish for my tastes—and the human characters, on second viewing, sometimes stand out awkwardly from their digital environs. That said, the CGI stuff still completely floors me. I'm not very fond of the film's art direction and character design, but it's impossible to go unimpressed by the technical intricacy of the world that Cameron and his collaborators at WETA have created. Watching the behind-the-scenes materials has given me a new appreciation for the sheer innovation that went into the film's workflow—more on that in a sec—and when Avatar confines itself to all-digital characters and environments, the detail is breathtaking.


Avatar Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Not much has changed on the audio front either. With the exceptions of the new scenes, this is the same stellar DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that graced the original release, and with good reason. There's really not much room for improvement. The only notable change is that the Theatrical Cut and Special Edition Re-Release editions of the film also carry the option of a Dolby Digital 5.1 Family Audio Track, which removes all objectionable language— by way of dubbing from the original actors—so that Avatar is friendlier to little ears. I stand by my earlier assessment:

With all of the visually stunning landscapes to take in, it's easy to overlook the immersion, power, and intimacy of Avatar's soundscape, brought to Blu-ray via an exceptionally detailed DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. There are certainly several sonic shock and awe moments here that will rattle your ribcage, shake the walls, and wake your neighbors—massive LFE-heavy explosions, spitfire machinegunning, and metal-rending, tree-cracking crashes—but where this track really succeeds is in crafting an engaging, believable world of sound. The surround channels are almost ceaselessly active, filling out the space around you with directionally accurate ambience. Just listen to the diversity of minute sounds as the characters traipse through the jungle—strange bird calls, wind, ominous rustlings, the chatter of the Pandoran equivalent of chimps. The cross-channel effects—zipping arrows, the rush of helicopter rotors, the flapping of enormous pterodactyl-like wings—are seamless and transparent, shot through the soundstage with pinpoint precision. More so, the sounds themselves have weight and clarity—the dynamic range is expansive—and the mix is effortlessly balanced. Meaning, no volume boosting or trimming required. I set my receiver to my usual listening level, and I don't think I touched my remote for the duration of the film. Dialogue remains discernable in the forefront, except for a few chaotic moments when the voices are intentionally—and realistically—difficult to hear. James Horner's score veers quite closely into Titanic territory at times—during one motif I can practically hear Celine Dion singing "Near, far…"—but it's appropriately epic, complementing the film well. I really can't imagine Avatar sounding any better than this.
