Colorful: The Motion Picture Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Colorful is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Sentai Filmworks with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. There has been quite a bit of chatter on various internet boards (including here at Blu-ray.com) about perceived flaws in the image quality of Colorful that some are attributing to some precipitous drops in bitstream rates. Only here's the thing: this film exhibits some of the most wildly fluctuating rates I have ever experienced, and folks are singling out one sequence toward the end of the film, where the rates aren't even as low as they get at other points. While the bulk of the film tends to play out in the 20-30 Mbps range, quite often things get well north of 30 Mbps and more than once they get into the really healthy area well north of 40 Mbps, but then just as suddenly they'll drop to just a few hundred kbps. What this means is that watching streaming rates may indicate issues but isn't always cut and dried. If it were, that would obviously mean that each and every time the bitsream dropped to the admittedly paltry kbps area, the image should devolve accordingly—except it doesn't.

What this all boils down to is what I personally think is a tempest in a teapot. A film is meant to be seen in motion, and a bitstream is a moment by moment indication of how much information there is on screen. I frankly don't have any ready explanation for why there's such a disparity in the streaming rates on this release, I can only report what I see. With that said, I personally noticed no egregiously horrible looking moments here, and certainly no macroblocking as some have indicated. There is rather prevalent banding, and occasional very minor stair stepping on some line detail.

One thing about Colorful is that it only rarely lives up to its title. This is an intentionally pallid looking piece that only jumps into vivid hues at key moments—when we see Makoto's paintings, for example, or, later in the film, when Makoto and his father take a little excursion into the woods where Makoto sketches and his father fishes. Otherwise, though, this is a relatively restrained looking piece that seems deliberately tamped down from a stylistic perspective.


Colorful: The Motion Picture Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Colorful offers lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes in both English and Japanese. This is a rather subtle film from a sound design perspective. Much of the sonic activity is simple dialogue, but occasionally some very nice ambient environmental effects will flood the surrounds. There is one sequence in the rain that's especially well done, but several of the cityscape segments offer nice surround activity. Dynamic range is negligible here, but fidelity is excellent.
