Big Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Big matures to Blu-ray with a nice looking 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. The most noticeable trait the transfer has to offer is its above-average color reproduction; the film features a broad spectrum of colors and never do they disappoint. Whether Josh's red Dukes baseball jacket or the green dinosaur in his loft, each hue -- bold and bland alike -- are rendered nicely on this release. Detail, too, suffices throughout. In addition to a rather good sense of depth to the image, the transfer reproduces each small detail in every frame nicely. Whether the run-down interior of the shady St. James hotel or the plush furnishings seen throughout MacMillan Toys, objects are presented with a satisfactory texture and level of visible detail. The transfer also features a noticeable but not overbearing amount of film grain, but very bright backgrounds feature a bit of noise. Blacks are adequately rendered and flesh tones range from solid to a shade of pink in some instances. On the whole, however, Big looks just fine, the transfer not as crisp and lifelike as the best the format has to offer but plenty good for a 1980s comedy.


Big Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Big graduates to Blu-ray and features a lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack. This offering features plenty of room-filling activity from each speaker in the system, the entire soundstage filled with the dynamic sounds of the carnival early in the film, for instance. Neither terribly clear nor completely undefined, most every sequence features plenty of fascinating and distinct sounds spread all around the soundstage. Other sound effects -- screams and a gunshot outside Josh's sleazy New York hotel room, for example -- deliver a believable presence that, combined with Hank's great performance, makes for one of the best scenes in the film. Also impressive are a few scenes that offer a fairly deep, rumbling low; a ride on a roller coaster rattles and shakes the listening area to fine effect. The track also reveals more subdued sounds that seemed lost in the shuffle in previous home video versions, for instance chatter amongst background onlookers at FAO Schwarz as Josh and MacMillan play on the big keyboard. Supported by good dialogue reproduction, Big delivers a soundtrack that never disappoints in the context of the movie.
