Great Expectations Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1 Great Expectations has received a stellar 1080p transfer. As it is the case with previous ITV discs we have already reviewed here the film has not received a full-blown digital restoration but the results are nevertheless utterly impressive. Detail is exceptionally strong allowing the viewer to see substantially more in comparison to any other release of this film that I have seen. For example the much treasured Criterion SDVD release of David Lean's classic pales notably next to this surprisingly solid presentation. The rich blacks, great contrast, and pleasing depth of the image are certainly going to make a strong impression on those who have seen Great Expectations numerous times. Take for example the crucial scene at the old ghotic house where Pip bids Estella goodbye. On the Criterion disc the degree of clarity is not even close to what this BD reveals. There is more vibrancy and stronger definition of the objects all around Pip from the stairs to the worn out clothes to the lush back decors. Furthermore, I don't see any DNR application here at all. Hence, without I must state that this is very much a film-like presentation that will surely please film purists a great deal. Finally, as I noted earlier there are indeed a few tiny scratches that pop up during a few selected scenes but the overall quality of the transfer is indeed of extremely high quality.


Great Expectations Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Arriving with its original English DD mono track as the only option on this BD, Great Expectations sounds great. The distinctive lines each character is awarded with come off the speakers flawlessly. The dialog is crisp and very easy to follow, while the wonderful soundtrack by Walter Goehr is simply superb. I could not detect any pop ups, cracks, or hissings, whatsoever. Without a doubt, there is absolutely nothing here one could be unhappy with. Optional English, white, subtitles are provided.
