Chasing Ice

 (2012)

Chasing Ice Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Documentary showing the impact of climate change on the world's ice caps. The film follows National Geographic photojournalist James Balog, a former skeptic about climate change, as he uses time-lapse cameras to capture a record of the world's changing ice landscapes over a period of several years. Making his expedition by helicopter, canoe and dog sled across three continents, Balog gathers his seemingly irrefutable evidence of the melting ice caps in an attempt to convince those who continue to deny the effects of climate change.

For more about Chasing Ice and the Chasing Ice Blu-ray release, see Chasing Ice Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: James Balog, Svavar Jonatansson, Adam LeWinter
Director: Jeff Orlowski

Chasing Ice Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Chasing Ice is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Cinedigm and Docurama Films with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. Chasing Ice, while incredibly disturbing due to its depiction of "calving events" and other phenomena tied to climate change, is nonetheless a staggeringly beautiful film, one that pops rather well—if not quite as well as might be hoped—on Blu-ray. This high definition presentation boasts excellent contrast, which keeps the often white encrusted shots from devolving into a mass of nothingness. However, the interlaced presentation does present some noticeable combing artifacts, and there does appear to have been some digital sharpening done to this release, perhaps due to the variety of source elements utilized. The result, however, is quite apparent ringing on display throughout this presentation. These are relatively minor distractions, however, and in fact may only be noticed by the most eagle eyed. While some of the lower-res source elements are of course soft and ragged looking, quite a bit of Chasing Ice offers sharp and well detailed imagery, including some spectacularly effective shots of glaciers and ice floes.


Chasing Ice Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Chasing Ice features two DTS-HD Master Audio tracks, a 2.0 and a 5.1. Documentaries like this one may not seem to offer much in the way of surround opportunity, but Chasing Ice proves to be a notable exception, one not limited only to its Oscar nominated song "Before My Time". The surround mix has some really great ambient environmental noise which is thrillingly immersive, and which also has several bursts of LFE courtesy of the "calving events". While the voice over and talking heads segments are of course anchored front and center, the 5.1 mix actually offers a substantially opened up account of the soundtrack. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is very wide.
