Jaws Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Jaws is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.36:1. There is more often than not a coterie of Universal dislikers (some would say Universal bashers) who are eager to get out their virtual scissors to cut any Universal catalog release's transfer to shreds, but they should take this one small statement into account:
    The entire restoration process was conducted in conjunction with Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment's post-production team to ensure the integrity of Spielberg's original vision remained intact.
Furthermore, Mr. Spielberg himself is well in evidence on the restoration featurette included as a supplement on this Blu-ray speaking without reservation about how good the Blu-ray looks. So, to these Universal nay-sayers, I ask that you please take your complaints to Mr. Spielberg should you recite the usual (and increasingly meaningless) mantra of "too much DNR" and the like, as he in my estimation is better equipped than any of us to know how he wants his film to look. In my hardly ever humble opinion, this is certainly one of the finest high definition presentations of a Universal catalog release we've seen during this centenary year, which many readers of course will say is damning with faint praise. According to the documentation provided with the release as well as the restoration featurette, as much of the original negative that could he harvested was for this transfer, utilizing a wet gate scan that sought to remove as many scratches as possible at that stage of the restoration process. Color timing has been painstakingly balanced throughout the film and contrast has also been dramatically improved. The image is crisp and beautifully detailed. So what about grain and noise reduction, the single most consistent complaints Universal catalog releases are saddled with: as the screencaps clearly show, there is natural fine grain in this transfer. Has it been mitigated somehow? I frankly don't know, but Universal's track record would suggest it may have been, since that tends to be their modus operandi. Does that somehow negate the fact that this transfer bears the approval of Steven Spielberg? I personally don't think so.


Jaws Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As much attention as image quality typically gets on major Blu-ray releases, for some reason people tend to give the audio quality short shrift a lot of the time. Maybe it's my background as a musician and composer that gets my hackles up about this, but I personally was actually more concerned about the repurposed lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track that adorns this new Blu-ray release of Jaws than I was about any suggested "usual" problems with a Universal catalog release's video. Jaws was released originally with a thrillingly effective mono track (which to Universal's credit is also provided on this Blu-ray courtesy of a DTS 2.0 mix), and I worried about how "tarting up" the original mix would potentially distract from the audio presentation. I needn't have worried. This is very smart repurposing, and if anything tends to be on the cautious side, which is how I personally prefer these repurposed surround mixes. There are certainly wonderful moments of immersion, especially in some of the panicked crowd scenes, but perhaps even more tellingly, in some relatively quieter moments when individual ambient environmental sounds are smartly placed around the sound field. Fidelity is superb and John Williams' towering score sounds magnificent. There's also a new clarity and precision to some of the foley effects (as Spielberg himself points out in the restoration featurette, you can now clearly hear the "dinosaur roar" as the shark meets its fate toward the end of the film).
