Bernie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Bernie arrives on Blu-ray with a very stable, bright, slightly warm, and strongly detailed 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Audiences will appreciate the HD video source's crispness, color, and attention to detail. Never does the film go HD soft, flat, or glossy. It's impressive work, very accurate and well-defined, with abundant sharpness and true-to-life details. The transfer handles the usual array of elements such as facial lines and clothing textures with remarkable precision. Close-ups of the corpse as seen at the beginning of the movie startle with the intricate fine lines and facial hairs evident on the pale body. All of the East Texas interviewees wear heavily textured clothes, and their surroundings offer some startling eye candy that's not only very well detailed, but also abundantly colorful. Millennium's transfer offers an impressive color palette that's as stable and rich as the detailing. Though it's certainly on the warm side -- warmer inside than outside -- the palette is consistently bright, varied, and true. Additionally, there's no problematic banding, blocky backgrounds, or other unwanted eyesores often found in digital photography. In short, this is a wonderful, balanced, and eye-catching transfer.


Bernie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Bernie's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack suits the dialogue-heavy material well. It's a classic "unmemorable" soundtrack that performs admirably but without much flair for the dramatic. There's the expected upper-end clarity but not a lot of energy. It handles light sound effects, such as the rumbling of a car engine as heard inside the vehicle, with the expected amount of oomph and realism. Chapter five finds some hefty bass and good, well-defined music. Much of the track is limited to the front half of the stage; the surrounds are sparsely utilized in any capacity. The hushed sounds of people shifting and whispering and turning their heads in otherwise quiet church, funeral, or courtroom scenes do well enough to give the listening audience a sense of the environment. The church service and funeral songs do enjoys good presence and accuracy and such are the sonic highlight of the film. Dialogue is even and focused up the middle. This is a good but unremarkable track that serves the movie nicely.
