Hocus Pocus Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Disney's Halloween extravaganza comes to Blu-ray boasting an AVC encoded image (1.84:1 aspect ratio) presentation. Although working with a varied color palette, the viewing experience is on the slightly softer side, with light filtering pulling out prominent grain, threatening the promise of deep textures during the picture. Detail is moderate, ranging during the run time, finding a few facial close-ups truly expressive, while artificially imagined neighborhood activities don't have a fully enrapturing feel of fabrics and foliage. The witch make-up work also leaves one expecting something more crisply defined, though tighter shots on Midler provide gruesome particulars. Hues look a little muted, only really coming alive during group costume sequences, while the rest of the feature doesn't have the natural snap of color Ortega aims for. Skintones are on the bloodless side. Black levels are satisfactory inside a difficult production that takes place at night, yet distances and interiors are easily read, with only a few moments of crush to contend with. The print looks clean, absent any overt damage.


Hocus Pocus Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix provides a consistent listening event, maintaining the fantasy mood of the feature with an unexpectedly immersive track. Scoring is prominent throughout, filling the surrounds with a hearty orchestral presence, which sounds full and broad, occasionally dwarfing dialogue exchanges to a minor degree. Performances are securely frontal, finding verbal activity on the thin side, but easily understood, finding competing comedic speeds and group activity adequately separated. Atmospherics are comfortable, with sounds of rushing wind and general witch lair occurrences showing some life, while directional activity is pronounced at times, finding Winnie's demonic voice carrying circular during a few scenes, including an empty high school showdown. Low-end is sparse, rarely engaged.
