Cold Mountain

 (2003)

Cold Mountain Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Inman, a Civil War Confederate soldier, is seriously wounded in battle before heading home to North Carolina to his pre-war beloved, Ada. In his absence, Ada--with the help of a young drifter named Ruby--is desperately trying to hold onto the farm of her deceased missionary father. Inman's long journey home takes him through the crumbling confederacy, as he meets people of all walks of life who want to both aid and hinder his mission.

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

Starring: Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, Renée Zellweger, Eileen Atkins, Brendan Gleeson, Philip Seymour Hoffman

Cold Mountain Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Cold Mountain is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate-Miramax with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is for the most part a solid and substantial high definition upgrade, one which presents the films beautiful locations in appreciably increased detail, but one which perhaps doesn't quite rise to the level of some other recent Lionsgate-Miramax catalog releases like Frida and Shakespeare in Love. Grain is noticeably more apparent in this release (as it is in Minghella's The English Patient, which I'll be reviewing directly after Cold Mountain), and is no doubt part of Minghella's preferred visual style. While it's never overwhelming, it definitely spikes in a number of sequences, quite noticeably in several of the darker moments as well as (perhaps surprisingly) shots that include bright, clear skies. The image offers nicely robust colors, though it must be said that Minghella and DP John Seale deliberately mute some of the palette, especially in the battle sequences, so that they look almost like old daguerreotypes. Fine detail is exceptional in midrange and close- ups (some of the close- ups of Law's deteriorating face are in fact alarmingly well detailed), while far range shots tend to just slight fuzziness at times. Aside from some very minor haloing, there really aren't any artifacts to report here. This isn't quite up to the excellent standards set by the first couple of releases in this ongoing Lionsgate-Miramax wave, and some might wonder if the film might have looked at least a bit better, but overall my sense is fans should be very well pleased with this high definition upgrade.


Cold Mountain Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Cold Mountain is presented with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that is quite remarkable on several levels. The film alternates between bombastic battle sequences and quieter, country-set moments with Ada (at least for the first part of the film), and the track captures the vast differences in these soundworlds effortlessly. The opening battle sequence with Inman features some devastating explosions that are delivered with some awesome LFE. But what really struck me about this track was actually the quieter, more reflective moments, where the quiet bleating of a sheep or rustling of the wind through trees with faint birdsong really helped to capture the ambience of North Carolina. The film also features a really evocative score that utilizes a lot of folk melodies and instruments, and those sound absolutely fantastic on this track. Dynamic range is exceptional, and surround activity is really pretty persistent throughout the film, even in more reflective dialogue moments. Fidelity is top notch, with no damage or distortion to report.
