Elf

 (2003)

Elf Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

This hilarious Christmas film tells the tale of a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts on Christmas Eve and is transported back to the North Pole and raised as an elf. Years later Buddy learns he is not really an elf and goes on a journey to New York City to find his true identity.

For more about Elf and the Elf Blu-ray release, see Elf Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Will Ferrell, Ed Asner, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Bob Newhart, Zooey Deschanel
Director: Jon Favreau

Elf Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Elf comes to Bluray in an eye popping 1080p/VC-1 encode framed at a 1:85:1 aspect ratio that renders the vibrant hues of the North Pole, Santa's workshop, and the city of New York beautifully. The print master appears spotless, with no film based artifacts to be found anywhere. The colors are strong, deeply saturated, without any chroma noise or bleeding. Contrast is spot on, and black levels while inconsistent, are very deep and inky. Images are sharp, three dimensional, and aside from a few soft shots, detail and fine detail are fairly crisp and sharp. Unlike the DVD release of this movie, images are not dogged by artifacting, banding, or severe edge enhancement, but it has its own set of issues.

In spite of looking so good overall, this bluray release is far from perfection. Noise and excessive grain dog scenes with heavy CG, and nighttime scenes as well. There are significant shifts in skin tones that vary from overly red to orange. And while not as severe as on the DVD, brief pulses of artifacting, and small slivers of edge enhancement can faintly be seen, but you have to look for it. Also extremely noticeable are the effects of DNR, over processing, and excessive filtering which brings detail down a few notches. This makes Elf's overall look rather digital looking and very unfilmlike. I am sure some of this is due to the fact you have to integrate so many different kinds of video effects with the film itself, but its effect really does affect picture quality negatively. Warner could have produced a more refined and natural looking picture, that is for sure.


Elf Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Unlike so many of Warner's releases, Elf is graced with a pretty impressive 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack encoded at 16/48 kHz. Also included are an English, German and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack the English at 640kbps, and the remaining at 448kbps. Dialog is clean, clear, and always discernable over the sound effects and music, so no prioritization issues here. LFE is well used to support the sound effects, and bass in the main channels. However there is not much output below 40hz on this track, so do not expect your sub to shimmy across the floor. The surrounds are effectively used, with some very good split surround activity. Unfortunately side and rear wall phantom images are non existent, which affects the level of immersion you feel. John Debney's film score is well recorded, and spread nicely across the frontal soundstage, extending fairly deep towards the front wall, and spilling into the surrounds as well. There are a few nifty panning effects that traverse around the room smoothly and with very convincing directionality.

When level matching and comparing the lossless track with the lossy track, you find that they with the exception of a slight bit of fullness, and a slightly wider soundstage on the lossless, sound pretty similar. This soundtrack is not bad for a comedy, but a little more could have been brought into the mix to enhance the visuals.
