Joyful Noise

 (2012)

Joyful Noise Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill, stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old. Shaking things up even more is the arrival of G.G.'s rebellious grandson, Randy. Randy has an ear for music, but he also has an eye for Vi Rose's beautiful and talented daughter, Olivia, and the sparks between the two teenagers are causing even more friction between G.G. and Vi Rose.

For more about Joyful Noise and the Joyful Noise Blu-ray release, see Joyful Noise Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Queen Latifah, Dolly Parton, Keke Palmer, Courtney B. Vance, Jesse L. Martin, Kris Kristofferson

Joyful Noise Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer is perfectly fine. I wouldn't call it perfect per se, but perfectly fine'll do. The film's warm sun-tea colors are lovely, primaries are strong and vivid, black levels are deep and inky, skintones are naturally saturated, and contrast is, for the most part, pleasant and consistent. There are a few murky scenes, when the curtains are drawn and the moon dips behind the clouds, and a slight softness presides over David Boyd's photography. But none of it is cause for concern. Detail ranges from serviceable to gratifying, and closeups are refined enough to make more than a few shots stand out. The choir performances aren't as striking, but between the stage lights, dazzling flashes of red and purple, and blinding spots, it's to be expected. Thankfully, the presentation is free of any encoding issues. Artifacting and banding are kept to a bare minimum, ringing and aliasing aren't factors, and minor crush is really the only thing worth mentioning. Otherwise, Joyful Noise looks pretty good; probably as good as it could.


Joyful Noise Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Don't expect to be overwhelmed. Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track certainly makes its share of joyful noises, but the film is largely a conversation-driven drama, with very little in the way of enveloping environments or immersive show-stoppers. The rear speakers do a nice job of conveying a sense of space, particularly when the choir competes in the finals at a large Los Angeles venue, but directional effects are limited, interior acoustics are only mildly convincing, and the film's musical numbers are the only things that take advantage of the full soundfield. LFE output is restrained but eager to please (again, especially when the music kicks in), dynamics are decidedly decent, and there just isn't much to complain about. There isn't much to get excited about either, mind you. But the track accomplishes everything it needs to. Any shortcomings trace back to the film's sound design, not the studio's lossless mix. Dialogue is intelligible, carefully centered and well-prioritized (without a lost line to be found), Mervyn Warren's music and Dolly Parton's songs are fittingly engaging and involving (technically speaking at least), and every beat, bark and bellow comes through as clearly and cleanly as it should. It isn't going to leave you cheering wildly, but it won't leave you grumbling either.
