It's Kind of a Funny Story

 (2010)

It's Kind of a Funny Story Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

At 5AM on a Sunday in Brooklyn, 16-year old Craig Gilner bicycles up to the entrance of a mental health clinic: Stressed out from the demands of being a teenager, before his parents and younger sister are even awake, Craig checks himself into Argenon Hospital and is admitted by a psychiatrist. But the youth ward is temporarily closed - so he finds himself stuck in the adult ward. One of the patients, Bobby, soon becomes both Craig's mentor and protege, while Craig is also quickly drawn to another 16-year-old displaced to the adult ward, the sensitive Noelle, who just might make him forget his longtime unrequited crush Nia. With a minimum five days' stay imposed on him by staff psychiatrist Dr. Eden Minerva, it's kind of a funny story...

It's Kind of a Funny Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

It's Kind of a Funny Story checks itself into high definition with a stable and decisive 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer that faithfully represents the film as presented in theaters. It isn't the sharpest patient in the Blu ward -- even if many a closeup borders on revelatory -- but it is true to Fleck and Boden's intentions. Antiseptic greens, sterile whites and desaturated blues dominate nearly every scene, but lifelike skintones, deep blacks and the occasional burst of primary power speak to the strength and substance of the presentation. Craig's dream sequences are particularly colorful, so much so that they transform the psychiatric ward into a far less inviting place. Detail is also quite impressive, despite being more inconsistent than other aspects of the presentation. Most of the film's softness can be chalked up to Andrij Parekh's photography, but a few brief instances of smearing suggest the presence of some minor shot-specific noise reduction. (Most likely applied by the filmmakers in post-production.) Thankfully, it isn't a prevailing issue. Far more often than not, fine textures are refined and well-resolved, closeups are striking, sweaters and beards showcase every fiber and hair, edge definition is crisp and clean, and a faint veneer of grain prevents the image from drifting into dangerous territory. The technical encode is extremely proficient as well. I didn't notice any substantial artifacting, banding, crush, aliasing or aberrant noise, or notice any unsightly blips on my compression radar. All in all, it may not be jaw-dropping, but it is thoroughly satisfying.


It's Kind of a Funny Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There isn't much to say when it comes to Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Like the film's video transfer, its lossless audio mix is a faithful representation of its source, albeit a restrained, fairly two-dimensional source that simply doesn't pack much punch. Dialogue is clear and intelligible on the whole, but a handful of lines wander off and get lost. The LFE channel mainly keeps to itself, springing to action when Craig escapes into his own mind and languishing whenever his focus returns to the hospital ward. The rear speakers quietly fall in line, blooming when art and fantasy sweep the stage but retreating whenever subdued ambience is all the soundscape has to offer. Even so, Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure," Maxence Cyrin's haunting piano rendition of "Where is My Mind," Method Man & Redman's "Da Rockwilder," Broken Social Scene's score and most of Fleck and Boden's soundtrack selections sound fantastic. The result? Whenever the film's music subsides, directionality is mildly engaging at best, dynamics are underwhelming and the soundfield, while adequate, doesn't really make a strong case for itself. And that's the long and short of it. Universal's track isn't a failure by any means, but it also doesn't fully immerse the listener in anything beyond the film's music.
