Black Nativity

 (2013)

Black Nativity Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In a contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes' celebrated play, the holiday musical drama BLACK NATIVITY follows Langston, a street-wise teen from Baltimore raised by a single mother, as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged relatives Reverend Cornell and Aretha Cobbs. Unwilling to live by the imposing Reverend Cobbs' rules, a frustrated Langston is determined to return home to his mother, Naima. Langston embarks on a surprising and inspirational journey and along with his new friends, and a little divine intervention, he discovers the true meaning of faith, healing, and family.

Black Nativity Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Black Nativity is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.39:1. This film was shot digitally with the Arri Alexa, one of the more filmic looking systems, and this transfer boasts an often sumptuous appearance that defies the smaller budget Lemmons had to work with. While some of the straight dramatic scenes aren't especially well lit, contrast and shadow detail are often exceptional, and in the more blatantly theatrical moments, things look excellently sharp and well detailed. Colors are nicely saturated and accurate looking, and for once the film hasn't been color graded to within an inch of its life (though Lemmons does play with palettes quite inventively throughout the film). The transfer is free of any noticeable compression artifacts.


Black Nativity Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Probably not that surprisingly, it's the musical sequences that offer Black Nativity's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix the most opportunity to open things up and envelop the listener. However, the songs are not the only time the surround channels are utilized to good effect. Langston's entry into New York City's Times Square is awash in nice ambient environmental sounds and even the nonmusical church sequences offer good attention to ambient reverb and spatial detail. Quite a few of the muiscal numbers feature a rather punchy kick drum which adds a lot of vigor to the low end. Fidelity is excellent throughout the track, with dialogue, effects and music all very well prioritized and cleanly presented. There are occasional minor mismatches between prerecords and onscreen lip synching, but those are of course unrelated to actual audio quality.
