Dances with Wolves

 (1990)

Dances with Wolves Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Assigned to an abandoned army post, Civil War hero, Lieutenant John Dunbar finds himself alone and beyond civilization. Only a wolf and some roving Sioux Indians provide distractions. Curiosity and survival force Dunbar into the Indian camp where he develops a unique relationship with the Sioux. But as the military ruthlessly push west, the Indian's existence is threatened and Dunbar finds himself torn between two cultures.

Dances with Wolves Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

I've not seen the editions of Dances with Wolves that appeared on Blu-ray in Germany, France, and the U.K. in 2008 and 2009—so I can't make any direct comparisons—but I can say that MGM's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of the film is thoroughly impressive and well worth the upgrade from DVD. Of course, with four hours of material on a 50 GB disc, there are instances where light compression noise can be spotted amid the natural film grain—this is most apparent in darker interior scenes—but never to the point of distraction. On the whole, the film is beautifully resolved in high definition, with a surplus of textures that appear almost tactile, from the shaggy coarseness of buffalo wool and nubby softness of suede to the sharp patterns of tree bark and the weather-beaten faces of the Native American actors. Softness intrudes occasionally—once again, usually in darker indoor scenes—but you really wouldn't notice unless you were going out of your way to look for it. Color is stable and warm, with a preponderance of pale sky blues, rich neutral tones, and bright autumnal hues, and while black levels can sometimes appear deep grayish or crush shadow detail—yes, during those dark indoor scenes—contrast is otherwise perfect. Best of all, there's been no digital tampering here—no DNR, excess edge enhancement, boosting, or grading. Dances with Wolves is one of MGM's top-tier, tent-pole films, and the studio has given it the Blu-ray treatment that it deserves.


Dances with Wolves Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Just as impressive is the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track that MGM has freshly whipped up for this 20th Anniversary release. With skirmishes, shootouts, and buffalo stampedes, the mix has plenty of opportunities to put the 7.1 presentation to immersive use. Bullets crack through the rears, horses bolt between channels, and the "tatanka" hunt is graced with an appropriately meaty low-end rumble as the buffalo move en masse over the plains. These action elements, however, constitute only a brief portion of the film. During the quieter, drama-driven scenes, the soundscape is just as astute, with bird song and insect noises filling the air, wind moving through tall grass, and rain pouring down all around. The only oddity I noticed is that you'll occasionally see something happening in front of you—in the "virtual" space, that is—but you'll also hear it behind you. Aside from these few anomalies, however, the mix is directionally accurate and consistently full of detail. Of course, some mention should be made of John Barry's now-iconic orchestral Americana score, which sounds as rich and dynamic here as you'd hope. Dialogue is clean and perfectly prioritized throughout, and do note that along with optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles—which appear in white—lines spoken in the Sioux language are always translated in bright yellow lettering inside the 2.36:1-framed image.
