Earth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's Earth boasts a strong 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that matches the BBC's impressive Blu-ray presentation. Colors are stunning, blacks are absorbing, contrast is vibrant, and detail is, quite often, staggering. Witness the hair bristling on the back of a fleeing gazelle, the tiny flakes of dust swirling around a panicked elephant, the textured hide of a lazy walrus, and the frazzled feathers of a brazen duckling. Pay careful attention to the footage captured from the film crew's helicopters. Note the beauty of on-screen herds, the definition of individual animals, and the clarity of swaying grass and falling leaves. As overwhelming as it can be at times, the best bits of the presentation will leave your jaw on the floor. Granted, several sequences are hindered by errant noise and spiking grain (particularly nighttime shots and dust storm scenes), but every instance should be attributed to the film's source, not the quality of Disney's technical transfer. Unfortunately, it isn't all as beautiful as its most unforgettable moments. Artifacting pops up from time to time, slow-motion shots are occasionally undermined by vertical bands, minor shimmering appears throughout the presentation, and underwater scenes suffer from faint macroblocking. Each problem is relatively easy to overlook in the grand scheme of things, but some viewers will be distracted by such inconsistencies.

Still, it's difficult to complain about a transfer that, for the most part, looks fantastic. Planet Earth fans will feel right at home, newcomers will quickly adjust to the presentation's inherent shortcomings, and videophiles will be fairly pleased with the results.


Earth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Earth features a a primed, polished, and proficient DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that enhances every aspect of the documentary it accompanies. Proving a lossless experience can make all the difference -- even when a narrator's voice is the primary element of a mix -- Disney's efforts are on full display, granting James Earl Jones' commanding voice legitimate weight and presence, enhancing the film's harsh environments with a convincing ambient atmosphere, and lending an immersiveness to the soundfield that most documentaries lack. Yes, the narration takes center stage, pushing chirping birds and rustling leaves into the background, and yes, LFE output and rear speaker activity only step up their game when the principal animal families stumble into immediate danger, but anything more aggressive would have undermined the filmmakers' intentions. Whether listening to tiny creatures hopping through the underbrush, following a frightened elephant calf into a raging dust storm, or diving beneath the icy waves with a pair of humpback whales, Earth sounds far richer and more satisfying than I expected. The mix isn't blessed with clashing robots or fiery explosions, but it does handle everything it's given with ease, creating a sonic experience documentary enthusiasts won't soon forget.
