Fly Away Home Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fly Away Home was nominated for one Academy Award: best cinematography. The transfer to 1080p is done right and fleshes out the dramatic shots, gorgeous earthtones, vibrant skintones, detailed textures and dynamic contrast, allowing all the factors that led to its cinematography nomination to shine through on Blu-ray. While Fly Away Home is not perfect, featuring slight signs of black crush or artifacting during moments of intense motion, it is overall one of those high definition pictures that makes you sit back and marvel how you ever had the patience to watch films on NTSC. The contrast and definition combine to deliver impressive sense of depth, but textures seem the most visually appealing.

Watch the scene with the goslings at the breakfast table. The gentle down in the hatchlings appears so realistic you can almost reach out and touch the birds' soft feathers. I love how textures are rendered. It isn't a reference quality picture, but only the most stodgy videophiles will have any complaints. I would characterize it as an above average transfer. Even Sony's traditional fingerprints of heavy cyan and yellow show minimal signs on this one. The aerial shots of light aircraft have a rare immediacy that reminded me of a stripped down production approach to Martin Scorsese's treatment of Howard Hughes' flights in The Aviator. But of course that cinematography was on another level.


Fly Away Home Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track is more lively than I expected from this mid-90s production. Featuring many touching interludes, the Mark Isham-composed score of Fly Away Home is spot on for a family feature. Extended treble cues add a touch of realism, especially in the sounds of the birds. Dialog is crisp and clear, with a euphonious midrange lending tonal accuracy for Anna Paquin's voice. The lush interludes are pumped up for the emotive aerial scenes. Surrounds and LFE channel play a minimal role, but frankly they would have been a distraction in a production like Fly Away Home. While the resulting track won't make you want to invite your buddies over to pound a six pack and show off your home theater system, it shows no signs of distortion and sounds pleasant and polite.
