Bedknobs and Broomsticks Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Bedknobs and Broomsticks shares one additional similarity with Mary Poppins: a wonderfully filmic remaster and 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation. Though a bit rougher around the edges, particularly in regards to many of the darker or moonlit sequences, grain has been almost perfectly preserved, color and contrast have been rejuvenated (with striking primaries and deep blacks), and detail has been renewed. Edges are refined and natural, without much in the way of ringing or softness to report. Textures are crisp and revealing as well, and impress as often and as much as the original elements allow. There are a few unsightly shots, and some problematic moments during the live-action/animation stretch of the film, each instance traces back to the age of the film, the aesthetics of the original photography, and the limitations of the era. Likewise, while skintones are occasionally a tad pale, critics should shake their collective finger at cinematographer Frank Phillips. Not Disney's remastering efforts. Mary Poppins may subjectively offer the more attractive video presentation, but, objectively, Bedknobs and Broomsticks delivers the same level of faithful restoration and should be praised accordingly.


Bedknobs and Broomsticks Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't quite as remarkable as its video presentation, but for a six-channel remix of a forty-three-year old movie, it holds its own. Rarely too underwhelming, rarely too overbearing. Dialogue is clean and clear, without many mishaps of note or examples of poor prioritization. Age has taken a toll -- intermittent hissing and other inconsistencies are still present to a small degree -- but audiophiles won't bat an eye. LFE output is restrained but satisfying, rear speaker activity is light and playful (without veering into overzealous revisionism), and the soundfield is pleasing, flat and front-heavy as it tends to be. All told, I didn't run into any real issues. Disney's work here is commendable.
