Dreamgirls

 (2006)

Set in the turbulent late 1960s and early ‘70s, “Dreamgirls” follows the rise of a trio of women—Effie, Deena and Lorrell—who have formed a promising girl group called The Dreamettes. At a talent competition, they are discovered by an ambitious manager named Curtis Taylor, Jr. (Jamie Foxx), who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the back-up singers for headliner James “Thunder” Early. Curtis gradually takes control of the girls’ look and sound, eventually giving them their own shot in the spotlight as The Dreams. That spotlight, however, begins to narrow in on Deena, finally pushing the less attractive Effie out altogether. Though the Dreams become a crossover phenomenon, they soon realize that the cost of fame and fortune may be higher than they ever imagined.

Dreamgirls Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

How is the picture quality of this 1080p/MPEG-2 1:85:1 encode? Stunning to say the least. Dreamworks really delivered the goods on this release, as this is one gorgeous release to behold. The encoding source appears pristine, no scratches, dirt, or blemishes to be found. Blacks are really deep and solid, but not so strong as to harm or kill shadow detail. Colors are well saturated and hues are well resolved, contrast is excellent, detail is simply exquisite. The amount of detail and fine detail gives the the picture quality that prized three deminisional look, with the sense of depth that is quite good. When you set all of the colors to such a wide picture dynamic, the whole image just really jumps off the screen. I saw no excessive grain, no artifacts, no banding, just a clean vivid image. This is reference material for sure, as there are nothing but quality images popping up on the screen. Check out the detail in the costumes when the Dreamettes perform. You can see everyone sequin, every detail in the silver lame gowns, but you can also see that too much makeup has been applied to Beyoncee face on occasion. This is one of the best looking bluray's I have ever seen, next to animation.



Dreamgirls Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

This movie is full of music, and in my opinion demanded a lossless track, so I am somewhat confused as to why Dreamworks did not include one. My first impression of the 640kbps Dolby Digital soundtrack was that it lacked mid bass and lower midrange power. Subsequent views dispelled that notion as checking my RTA's everything was very tightly balanced. This movie is mostly dominated by music, so do not expect explosions, bullets, or cannon fire to define the quality of the mix. What you do get here is a very fine mix with very well recorded musical numbers. The mix is so well done that vocal lyrics are never crushed by the music, LFE is almost non existant as most of the bass is directed at the front left, center, and right speakers. Occassionally the LFE would provide some low frequency support, but not much. The high end is well extended and airy, however on occasion cymbals would jump out of the mix during some of the numbers. Bass is tight, and non sung dialog is very well integrated into the mix. The frontal soundstage was huge, deep and wide, extended from wall to wall, and floor to ceiling. Music during concert performance wrapped nicely into the surprisingly active surrounds creating the ambience of the venue along with the noise, comments, and clapping coming from the audience. All of the musical numbers were so well done in terms of vocal performance it gave me chills. Listening to Jennifer Hudson belt out songs like "And I'm Telling You I Am Not Going" "One Night Only" and "I am Changing" had me jumping out of my seat. Beyonce singing "Listen" was extremely powerful and emotional. To say this was a very satisfying soundtrack would be the understatement of this century.
