Dave Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Dave's cinematographer Adam Greenberg (James Cameron's Terminator films, The Santa Clause 2) struck an interesting balance between the cheery tones of light comedy and the dark, serious and saturated blues, reds and browns usually found in films set in the world of politics. The effective and accurate reproduction of these color choices is the strongest element on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. Where the Blu-ray is less impressive is in the area of detail and definition. This does not appear to be a product of filtering or detail stripping, as the image retains a natural-looking grain structure and suffers from none of the smearing or waxiness associated with overly aggressive digital processing. Either the softness is inherent in the original photography, or the transfer failed to capture the maximum detail possible, for one reason or another. In any case, I note that the images reflected in the screen captures accompanying this review do not fully reflect the quality of the Blu-ray image as it appeared in motion on my display screen. This is one Blu-ray that definitely looked better as a moving image. (Obviously, there were no compression or mastering errors to report.)


Dave Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The DTS-HD MA 2.0 track adequately recreates Dave's theatrical stereo surround mix, which was and remains front-centered with emphasis on voices and dialogue. Play it through a surround decoder, and you'll get a nice sense of ambiance in busy scenes like the lawyers' convention that President Mitchell addresses before heading off for his fateful encounter with his secretary or the visit to the homeless shelter made by Dave and the First Lady. James Newton Howard's score is particularly well-suited to the film, with its airy, upbeat optimism, and it sounds particularly good in this presentation—indeed, better than I recall ever hearing it.
