Bedtime Stories

 (2008)

Bedtime Stories Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Hotel handyman Skeeter Bronson's life is changed forever when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to mysteriously come true. He attempts to take advantage of the phenomenon, incorporating his own aspirations into one outlandish tale after another, but it's the kids' unexpected contributions that turn Skeeter's life upside down.

For more about Bedtime Stories and the Bedtime Stories Blu-ray release, see Bedtime Stories Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Adam Sandler, Keri Russell, Guy Pearce, Russell Brand, Richard Griffiths (I), Teresa Palmer (I)

Bedtime Stories Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Boasting a crisp and colorful 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, Bedtime Stories is yet another release that demonstrates Disney's unwavering commitment to high-quality high definition video. Shankman's vibrant, lush palette borders on garish and overwhelming at times, but ultimately provides a relatively appropriate treat for the eyes. Vivid contrast gives daytime exteriors and low-lit interiors impressive depth. Inky blacks and well-delineated shadows enhance the impact of the image with convincing dimensionality. While fine detail is occasionally absorbed by the darkest portions of the screen, textures are tangible and object definition is exceedingly sharp (without the use of any significant edge enhancement). To top it all off, the picture is as remarkably clean -- I didn't catch sight of any distracting artifacts, instances of banding, or print inconsistencies. Granted, some negligible noise creeps into a handful of nighttime shots, but it doesn't detract from Disney's otherwise proficient transfer.

In fact, the only issues I have with the arguably gorgeous presentation -- the appearance of slightly oversaturated skintones, the abundance of overpowering primaries, and the presence of some dodgy CG (made more apparent in high definition) -- aren't technical problems at all, but rather intentional decisions made by the filmmakers to submerge viewers in Sandler's childlike dreamscapes. As far as I'm concerned, Bedtime Stories is the latest in a string of recent Disney releases that proves the studio has a firm grasp on exactly what it takes to mint a jaw-dropping Blu-ray transfer.


Bedtime Stories Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Overpowering and obnoxious, Disney's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't nearly as impressive as its video transfer. While it's tough to tell where Bedtime Stories' pedestrian sound design ends and the shortcomings of its overworked technical mix begins, one thing is clear: it takes more finesse than heightened volume and overwrought LFE support can achieve to make a top tier audio track. While dialogue is generally crisp, it often gets trampled by the sheer bombast of the film's action sequences. Lines are sometimes muffled, whispers are drowned out, and faint high-end ambience is flushed away. Likewise, while the soundfield swirls with activity, the rear speakers are too aggressive, hindering the integrity and immersive properties of the mix. Other aspects of the track are just as inconsistent. Directionality is usually spot on, but gets dragged under the film's intrusive sonic surges like everything else. Pans are generally smooth, but so authoritative at times that all subtlety is lost. Dynamics are initially astonishing, but eventually grow annoying.

Even so, it's important to note how difficult it is to evaluate such a heavy-handed track on its merits. Disney may actually have produced a flawless lossless audio mix, but it's nearly impossible to tell since Bedtime Stories hurls every soundscape element at the listener with reckless abandon. I was simultaneously overwhelmed by the sensory assault and underwhelmed by its acuity. I suppose kids will be excited by the insanity of it all and will have no problem grabbing their ears and sinking right in. Me? I continually found myself adjusting the volume and longing for a legitimately involving experience.
