Elizabeth

 (1998)

Elizabeth Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

This is the England of 1554, but the veneer of traditional English composure and dignity has been stripped away. The British populace is in turmoil. Fearing a challenge to her throne, Queen Mary I imprisons her half-sister, Princess Elizabeth Tudor (The daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn), in the Tower of London. But, in 1558, when "Bloody Mary" dies, Elizabeth is swept onto the throne and, at the age of 25, is crowned Queen of England. In order to survive, let alone to rule, Elizabeth must suss out hidden agendas: the Court is rife with intrigue; military strategists are risking the lives of young Englishmen; religious leaders at home and abroad place no faith in her; and the man she loves might not be worthy of her trust. The male-dominated ruling class would appear to have the advantage, but intelligent Elizabeth will deploy whatever means necessary to keep, or take what's rightfully hers.

For more about Elizabeth and the Elizabeth Blu-ray release, see Elizabeth Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Elizabeth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Elizabeth arrives on Blu-ray from Universal with a largely stupendous VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio (which will probably display as 1.78:1 on your system). This is one of the sharpest, most colorful Blu's I've seen in a long time, and puts Universal's Out of Africa release of a couple of weeks ago to shame. Colors are incredibly richly saturated here, with a breathtaking array of reds, blues, greens and purples. Detail is simply amazing, with gorgeous depth of field, perhaps more noticeable than usual due to Kapur and Adefarasin's impressive use of focus throughout the film. Flesh tones can't exactly be called "natural," due to the use of makeup on most characters, but the color spectrum here looks perfectly filmic and true to the original theatrical presentation. Grain is evident, but never overwhelming and contrast is exceptionally well balanced, even when white "blow out" is utilized several times throughout the film. The only thing keeping this from a 5-star rating are a couple of very minor artifacting issues, mostly on some of the heavily patterned and brocaded costumes. You'll see just a hint of aliasing and moire at times, but it's never too horrible. Otherwise, this is a stellar video presentation.


Elizabeth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There's not a lot of bombast to Elizabeth's DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix, but what's here is very nicely directional and extremely clear. The soundfield here can be rather subtly realized at times, but in large hall scenes in the court, it really comes fully alive, with some great immersive moments filling the surrounds with lots of chatter and Elizabethan music. Nice aural pans crop up from time to time in scenes like horses traversing the screen. Dialogue is crisp and clean and always easy to hear, and the overall balance between dialogue, underscore and foley effects is top notch. There's also a very nice aual delineation between different kinds of spaces. You'll notice a clear difference between the ambience in Elizabeth's court and smaller spaces like Mary, Queen of Scots' lair or even, heaven forfend, the Tower of London.
