Brother Bear Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's faithful 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer initially presents Brother Bear windowboxed at 1.75:1 (with black bars on all sides) and then opens the image to 2.35:1 widescreen (with black bars at the top and bottom) at the 24:30-minute mark. Some will undoubtedly question the windowboxed presentation. However, presenting the film at true 1.75 or screen-filling 1.78:1 would lessen the intended impact of the aspect ratio shift. While less than ideal, particularly for viewers with Plasma or LED displays -- ideal being a true 1.75:1 image opening to a true 2.35:1 image, which can currently only be accomplished via projection -- it's the lesser of two evils and the best solution available. Thankfully, aside from prevailing banding that creeps in from scene to scene and a hint of aliasing inherent to the film's CG elements, the encode itself can be quite spectacular. Before the aspect ratio shift, colors pack punch but are a tad dull. After the shift, the palette is emboldened, suddenly brimming with more vibrant hues, more stunning primaries and richer, inkier blacks. Contrast remains consistently satisfying throughout, while pinpoint detail revels in crisp, clean line art, perfectly preserved animation and every nuance on display. Better still, significant macroblocking, noise and other issues are contained or altogether absent, and the image could only impress more if it weren't so prone to banding.


Brother Bear Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Although I expected a somewhat fuller, more enveloping lossless experience, Brother Bear's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track nevertheless kept me firmly rooted in the soundscape. Voices are clear and well-prioritized, and rarely succumb to surging waters, battles to the death or the bombast of the film's most intense sequences. Low-end output is strong and dynamics are excellent too, digging deep whenever called upon without sacrificing subtlety or prowess. The rear speakers, meanwhile, are light but lively, paying fitting respect to the score and Phil Collins' songs, albeit occasionally at the expense of a more engaging soundfield. The expanse of the wilderness and the depths of the forest aren't as vast, involving or immersive as they could be, even if the original sound design, not the lossless track itself, is the chief culprit. Fortunately, Brother Bear's audio isn't laden with issues or oddities of any kind and does its job, time and time again.
