Coraline Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

"Perfection" is a word I try to use as sparingly as possible when discussing video presentations, but in the case of Coraline's exquisite 1080p/VC-1 transfer, no other word seems capable of so adequately and concisely describing its every frame. Whether Coraline is picking at her food in her gloomy house or dancing through the burgeoning flowers of her evil-parents' garden, Selick's palette erupts off the screen, dazzling the eye with bold primaries, phosphorescent green light, and absolutely stunning skintones. Blacks are deep and inky -- everything from the night sky, to the tiniest sliver of shadow, to the bottomless wells of her other mother's black button eyes is rich and absorbing. Detail is impeccable as well. While Selick uses diffuse lighting in several scenes (resulting in a slight softening of the image), textures are exceedingly refined, edges are crisp, and every nuance of the animators' puppets is on full display at all times.

Universal's technical presentation is just as flawless. I didn't encounter any significant artifacting, banding (a regular offender in animated films), source noise, distracting artificial sharpening, or other post-production nonsense. A faint veneer of grain permeates the proceedings, but it only serves to enhance the filmic nature of the image. Simply put, Universal's video transfer is just as magnificent as Coraline's gorgeous animation. For once, I have nothing... literally nothing to complain about.

As for the 1080p/VC-1 encoded 3D version of Coraline, I decided not to factor its picture quality into my overall video score. As most of you might already expect, it's more of a gimmick -- a curiosity if you will -- than a legitimate way to experience the film (at least the first time through). Even though Coraline is the first stop-motion animated production to be filmed in 3D, and despite the fact that its immersive 3D theatrical debut wowed audiences and critics alike, the Blu-ray version is hindered by an anaglyped presentation, magenta and cyan lenses (which drastically distort the film's vivid palette), frequent ghosting, and depth-of-field inconsistencies (distant objects don't come together as precisely as they should). Granted, any shortcomings should be attributed to the limitations of home video 3D -- which hasn't come close to catching up with the technology currently being used in theaters -- but it's still a difficult, somewhat annoying way to watch a film, especially one as lovely as Coraline.

Even so, those who do plow through the entire 3D experience will be rewarded with at-times amazing depth of field and lifelike dimensionality. More often than not, I felt as if I could reach out and grab hold of Selick's puppets. If the transfer's best illusions were paired with the vibrant, sparkling visuals of the 2D presentation, I might consider the 3D version as something other than a supplemental feature. However, in my humble opinion, it's worth little more than a quick look.


Coraline Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Universal's commanding DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is just as impressive. While it begins with a whisper rather than a roar, it soon embraces every screeching demon, splintering reality, and lumbering monstrosity that feeds on Coraline's fear. Dialogue is crisp, clean, and nicely prioritized in the mix -- when a thunderous praying mantis clatters after our fleeing heroine, her shrill cries for help are crystal clear; when she clambers up a teetering spiderweb, the distant calls of her feline companion ring true; when she attempts to spend time with her strange neighbors, her uncomfortable murmurs remain perfectly intelligible. Better still, LFE output is resonant and earthy, and the rear soundstage is as active as Coraline's mind. Ambience is enveloping and convincing, directionality is eerily realistic, and interior acoustics -- be they in a quiet house, a small prison cell, or an expansive gathering hall -- are as precise and immersive as they come. Just listen as a parade of circus mice rush to fill your home theater. Marvel at the smoking gravy-train that circles Coraline's doppelgänger family before arriving at her mashed potatoes. Tremble as a rickety balcony collapses onto the soft grass below. No matter what scene you choose, simply listen to it all unfold. Coraline may pack a tremendous visual punch, but its aural kick will leave its mark as well.
