Gorillas in the Mist Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

It's always interesting to read the wildly different responses various viewers have to a maligned Universal catalog presentation. Some are quick to mount a defense... It looks fine! What's the problem? It looks so much better than the DVD! Others are quick to point out the issues that plague the image; issues that are quite telling when trying to identify the era of the transfer being utilized, the outmoded techniques used to spiff up and sharpen the original source, and the mild to severe consequences of employing such techniques. Regardless of how satisfied or dissatisfied one might be with the results, though, it's next to impossible to make a case that Universal's 1080p video transfer is anything but problematic. I'd go so far as to call it a bit of a first generation Blu-ray mess, but I'm more sensitive to the issues on display than those who have shown themselves far more forgiving and willing to settle for a mediocre presentation.

Colors are richer and more generously saturated than ever before, sure. Black levels are deeper, clarity and detail boast a marginal upgrade, and the encode itself is largely free of macroblocking, banding, aliasing and other eyesores. No argument here. However, the image isn't film-like at all, despite the presence of grain. Noise reduction has certainly been employed (note the smearing, poorly resolved fine textures and pulpy, chunky, oft-times displaced grain), edge enhancement is out in full force (as many a glaring edge halo will attest), and very few scenes, if any, showcase the precision or refinement a proper ground-up restoration or well-sourced remastering would offer. Yes, softness is present, and in many cases, attributable to the original photography. But there's a big difference between a soft shot and one rendered soft by overzealous noise reduction, and there are just to many of the latter to give this one a pass. Does it best its DVD counterparts? Absolutely. Is this the best Gorillas in the Mist could look? Not even close, and you don't have to be an eagle-eyed videophile to come to the same conclusion.


Gorillas in the Mist Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is much better, at least in terms of its faithfulness to the source. There's still a presiding front-heaviness to the mix, which is to be expected, but there's enough use of the rear speakers to make up for it, particularly when Fossey makes her way deep into the jungle. Dialogue is clean, clear and nicely prioritized, with only a few instances of muffled, tinny or less than intelligible voices. (The film's original sound mix and design being the culprit.) LFE output is steady and strong, albeit a tad inconsistent, and dynamics are quite good, barring a few elements that should hit with more oomph than they do. (Again, blame the film, not the lossless track.) In fact, other than the age of the production, there's very little to complain about. Gorillas in the Mist's mix fares about as well as it could. Other than a handful of underwhelming moments, I was pleased with what I heard.
