Beetlejuice

 (1988)

Beetlejuice Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In the surreal, wonderfully cartoon-like comedy Beetlejuice, a childless couple, Barbara and Adam (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin), move to the country only to be killed in a car accident while passing over a quaint covered bridge. Their ghosts return to their beloved Victorian home, and find the Handbook for the Recently Deceased, which not only lets them know they're dead, but comes in handy when they learn that they can continue to live in their house, even though a new family—from the land of the living—is moving in. The new owners, fresh from the city, are quite a strange group themselves, and include the overpowering hipster mom Delia (Catherine O'Hara), her pompous SoHo interior designer Otho (Glenn Shadix), her meek husband Charles (Jeffrey Jones), and their morose teenage daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder), who befriends the ghostly couple. Though the threesome attempt to scare Delia from ruining the house with redecoration and her unpleasant personality, their attempts fail. As a last resort, they call upon the services of the demented, terrifying, but hilarious "bioexorcist," "Beetlejuice" (Michael Keaton).

For more about Beetlejuice and the Beetlejuice Blu-ray release, see Beetlejuice Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Beetlejuice Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

This freshly minted 1080p/VC-1 encode framed at an accurate 1:85:1 aspect ratio is just beautiful to look at. It is one of the most natural looking films that I have seen come to Bluray disc in while. The source is pristine, without a hint of physical blemishes such as scratches, dirt and pops. Blacks are very inky, and in some places crushed and muddy, but only in some of the darker scenes. Contrast can sometimes look a little crushed on the bottom end, but it is not that distracting. The color palette is very well saturated, with red being particularly striking. Grain structure is very fine, well managed, and nicely preserved with no signs of compression noise, DNR, or artifacts. Detail and fine details are quite good; sharpness is very good with no presence of edge enhancement. There are some shots that look a little soft, but I attribute that to the source being film based. This twenty year old film looks dang good for its age! Good job Warner.


Beetlejuice Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There are a lot of tracks to choose from on this release. There is a very good 5.1 Dolby TrueHD track at 16/48khz, a 5.1 English Dolby Digital track at 640kbps, a French Dolby Digital track at 192kbps, a Spanish, Latin, German, Italian, and Japanese stereo Dolby Digital tracks. Subtitles are designated in 14 different languages. Naturally I chose the Dolby TrueHD track as it is superior to the rest. This mix is very front centric, but very spacious sounding with good envelopment. The surrounds are used to open up the mix a bit, but are largely silent throughout the movie. Bass is mainly handled by the main front speakers, but there is occasional LFE usage to support the bass in the front channels. Dialog is always clear and never buried in the overall mix. Danny Elfman's film score is well recorded, so much so you can tell the orchestra is smaller than what is commonly used in today scores. I have always like the creative way he uses instrument textures and nice melodic running instrumental lines in his music, and they come forth well here. The Dolby digital track at 640kbps has a truncated sound field in comparison to the lossless track. It sounds flat, not as dynamic, and muddy in comparison. This soundtrack does a good job of enhancing the storyline without becoming the focus of the film.
