Billy Elliot

 (2000)

Billy Elliot Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Yorkshire, during the endless, violent 1984 strike against the Thatcher closure of British coal mines. Widower Jackie Elliot and his firstborn, fellow miner Tony, take a dim view of 11 year-old second son Billy's poor record in boxing class, which worsens when they discover he sneakily transferred to the neighboring, otherwise girls-only-attended ballet class. Only one schoolmate, closet-gay Michael Caffrey, encourages Billy's desire, aroused by the teacher, who judged him talented enough for private lesson, to train and try out for the world-renowned Royal Ballet audition. Only the prospect of a fancy career unimagined in the pauper quarter may twist pa and big brother's opposition to indispensable support.

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

Billy Elliot Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

I dream of a world with no edge enhancement. No DNR. A world free of edge halos and smearing. A world where a Billy Elliot release earns top marks for its video quality. Alas, that world isn't here just yet. The halos and blasé fine textures that haunt Universal's 1080p/VC-1 encoded presentation aren't among the most distracting I've seen, but they do beg the question: why did the film need tweaked at all? Are we dealing with an old DVD-era master, as I suspect? Or a heavy-handed remaster? Everything looks fairly good, from Brian Tufano's economically strained palette to the actors' wonderfully saturated skintones to the understated storminess that graces many scenes. While Universal had been making some small strides (baby steps, really) toward minting better catalog transfers, this one falls squarely in the middle of the studio's best and worst. Grain has been largely eliminated (along with many a texture), clarity is serviceable (and little more), and definition is, on the whole, less than spectacular (even if those with small to medium-sized screens will wonder what I'm grumbling about). On a positive note, colors are as chilly or toasty as they're meant to be, contrast is consistent and consistently satisfying, black levels are nice and earthy, and delineation is decent. It helps that the presentation is as proficient as it is, without any signs of compression mishaps or encoding difficulties Ultimately, though, persistent edge halos and overzealous noise reduction hold this one back from greatness. No one should avoid Billy Elliot's Blu debut for fear of sitting through an unwatchable video presentation (it nudges past its DVD counterpart, after all), but don't get too excited until you've seen it. It could look much better.


Billy Elliot Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Billy Elliot's stirring DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track steadies itself, darts across the soundstage and leaps with joyous enthusiasm... most of the time. Alas, there are a handful scenes, few and far between as they may be, that are front-heavy, thin and a wee bit stodgy, not that anyone but the most stringent audiophiles will complain. Dialogue is clean, bright and nestled snuggly within the struggling, soot-stained shanty that is Stephen Daldry's mining town. LFE output is hearty and assertive -- particularly when Billy plays his brother's records or hears music welling up inside of him -- and muffled footfalls, meaty punches, violent picket line encounters, and other low-end effects are given proper support. The use of the rear speakers is commendable as well, as rowdy crowds, tiny dancers, angry coal miners and street noise struts its stuff. And it doesn't stop there. Directionality is fairly accurate convincing, dynamics sing and soar, and pans are, by and large, graceful (even if a small number are a tad sluggish). If the flurry of strings and horns that embrace Billy's parting Swan Lake performance don't send shivers down your spine, well then, you don't have much of a spine. Ultimately, Billy Elliot's lossless mix exhibits real prowess, which isn't entirely common when dealing with twelve-year-old catalog titles.
