Catch and Release

 (2006)

Catch and Release Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

After the sudden death of her fiancé, Gray Wheeler (Jennifer Garner) finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted and comic Sam (Kevin Smith), hyper- responsible Dennis (Sam Jaeger), and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz (Timothy Olyphant), an irresponsible playboy whom she’d previously pegged as one of the least reliable people in the world. As secrets about her supposedly perfect fiancé emerge, Gray comes to see new sides of the man she thought she knew, and at the same time, finds herself drawn to the last man she ever expected to fall for.

For more about Catch and Release and the Catch and Release Blu-ray release, see Catch and Release Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Catch and Release Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the MPEG-2 codec (at an average bitrate of 23Mbps), Catch and Release offers a satisfying visual experience, but never achieves the level of quality found on a reference release. Considering this was an early Blu-ray offering, detail is surprisingly well-defined, with a pleasing level of depth in most scenes. Unfortunately, that's where the strengths end, and the weaknesses begin. Color saturation wavers between overly bright or dreadfully dull, with skin tones that appear pale and unnatural at times. Black levels are appropriately deep, but several interior shots exhibit subpar contrast resulting in a loss of shadow detail in the darker portions of the screen. This is especially apparent in low-light sequences, where background details have a tendency to become splotchy. Lastly, I was disappointed to find some minor edge enhancement around character outlines. It doesn't happen often enough to impact the viewing experience in a significant way, but it's still worth mentioning.

Overall, the transfer is a fine example of how far the Blu-ray format has come since it's inception. It still holds up well next to the average high-definition release, but pales in comparison to the best offerings the format has to offer.


Catch and Release Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The default audio track on the disc is a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, which doesn't come close to matching the audio proficiency of the Linear PCM 5.1 track. Once you deal with the minor hassle of switching tracks, you can sit back and soak up the increased clarity of the lossless sound mix. One of the highlights of the film as a whole is the indie-folk soundtrack that effectively sets the mood during the many emotional sequences. The musical numbers are well-balanced throughout the entire soundfield with a wonderful level of precision and grace. If you're looking for much more out of this dialogue-heavy experience, you may be a little disappointed. With the exception of the occasional environmental effects, the track remains heavily grounded in the front soundstage and doesn't offer much in the way of an LFE channel. For a romantic comedy, the audio is certainly adequate, but not something I'd consider inspired or overly engaging.
