Jason and the Argonauts Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

It's rough, it's grainy, and it's glorious. Jason and the Argonauts sails onto Blu-ray with a gorgeous 1080p, 1.66:1-framed transfer that places small vertical black bars on either side of the 1.78:1 display. The harshest elements generally accompany the special effects shots; thick halos surround various objects, blacks overpower the image, and grain is at its heaviest in those scenes. Generally, however, the more generalized images that are absent any special effects elements sparkle, particularly most any bright outdoor scene. Details are exemplary; porous and natural-looking faces, beads of sweat, wear-and-tear on armor and weapons, and stitches in clothing are all wonderfully defined. Colors are stable and handsome, never overly bright nor at any point even the slightest bit dulled. Both brighter and paler shades -- bright red garbs, the sandy terrains, and blue seas -- are all reflective of a good, quality presentation. Flesh tones, likewise, are consistently natural. No doubt the image exhibits some rough-looking patches, but this is Jason and the Argonauts; this Blu-ray disc appears to reflect the film in its natural state, as it should appear. In that regard, this is another very high-quality Blu-ray release from Sony.


Jason and the Argonauts Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Jason and the Argonauts floats onto Blu-ray with a sound DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Most listeners familiar with classic movie soundtracks on Blu-ray can probably guess that this one's pound-for-pound no match for Terminator Salvation, but it's a very high quality presentation when judged on its own merits and not compared to anything more modern and far more robust. The track is decidedly front heavy with most of the action coming from the center speaker. Dialogue is nicely balanced and effortless throughout. Most of the picture's sound effects don't stray far from center-front, either, though various atmospheric elements -- gently rolling waters and creaks and cracks on the wooden vessel, for instance -- manage to find their way onto either side of the soundstage. The track is nicely supportive of the age and style of the movie; listeners simply need understand that the "5.1" designation doesn't necessarily equate to a high-octane, wholly-engulfing listen. For Jason and the Argonauts, Sony's lossless DTS track performs admirably.
