Brother Bear / Brother Bear 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Brother Bear - 4/5

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 2 - 4/5

The sequel's television-quality animation obviously disappoints compared to that of the first film, although not nearly as much as the lackluster animation that drags down other Disney direct-to-video sequels of the era. Fortunately, the studio's more-than-solid 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation helps alleviate most of the sting. Colors are warm and pleasant, primaries are vivid, contrast and black levels are able-bodied, and detail is exacting to a fault. Moreover, there isn't much in the way of compression artifacts or aliasing, and nothing in the way of the print damage and general unsightliness that plagued The Hunchback of Notre Dame II. The picture is pristine, and only a few instances of banding spoil the proceedings. All told, Brother Bear 2 and its presentation don't fare as well as their first film counterparts, but the source, not the encode, is largely to blame. Otherwise, no serious complaints here.

Brother Bear / Brother Bear 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Brother Bear - 4/5

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.

Brother Bear 2 - 3.5/5

The direct-to-video sequel's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is a bit more front-heavy than the first film's lossless mix, but it's no less proficient. Dialogue is clean and intelligible, the LFE channel adds welcome weight and presence to a fairly weightless series of events, and rear speaker activity is decidedly decent, sparse and unassertive as it can be at times. There isn't much more to the DTV experience, unfortunately, and rare is the scene that takes advantage of the soundfield. Again, though, the culprit here, like Brother Bear, is the sequel's sound design; underwhelming and uninspiring, yes, but on point all the same.
