Journey to the Center of the Earth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Journey to the Center of the Earth is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.34:1. When Journey came to the then technologically "amazing" laserdisc format around 1990, it was evidently discovered that the original negative had deteriorated to such a point that it couldn't be used for what would have then been a state of the art transfer. Apparently at that time new intermediary elements were created which may still be in use today, according to information passed on to me from Twilight Time's Nick Redman. The results, while not completely staggering, are very good and should please ardent videophiles who bring appropriate expectations. The colors here are still quite robust a lot of the time, though flesh tones, while generally very accurate looking, are just slightly pallid in some of the opening scenes. The ubiquitous purples and reds are still vivid and extremely impressive. The elements here are in surprisingly good shape, with very little damage or blemishing to report. As with most of the Fox HD masters that have been provided to Twilight Time by the studio, there doesn't appear to have been any drastic DNR applied to this release, so grain is intact (and quite apparent in some of the opticals, as should be expected), though edge enhancement is also quite noticeable in several sequences. The image is generally just a bit on the soft side, especially with regard to midrange shots, though fine detail pops quite nicely in close-ups. While the overall presentation here is decently sharp and detailed, it's not quite up to modern day standards for what a top tier catalogue release should look like, no doubt due largely to the elements that Fox was forced to use.


Journey to the Center of the Earth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Whatever niggling doubts some may have about the video quality of Journey to the Center of the Earth should be offset rather substantially by the pretty incredible sounding lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 4.0 audio offered on this release. Fox did the best it could with the video elements it had on hand, and even diehard home theater fans have to realize that if the elements aren't there to begin with, there's only so much that can be done. With regard to the audio, Fox evidently went back to the drawing board as it were and though it evidently only had a duplicate stereo track from 1968 (no one is quite sure why), they had this restored at a rather substantial cost back when the laserdisc was released, and apparently that restored track has now been released in a lossless format. The results are terrific sounding, especially with regard to Bernard Herrmann's incredible organ infused score. The low stops on the organ, while not what one traditionally thinks of as LFE, will positively leave most home theater floorboards rattling, or at least humming along in sympathetic vibration. At times there is still just the hint of boxiness in the midrange, but overall fidelity is superb on this track, with dialogue clear and consistent, effects well placed and prioritized, and Herrmann's score sounding better than ever.
