Lars and the Real Girl

 (2007)

Lars and the Real Girl Blu-ray features mediocre video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Lars Lindstrom is a loveable introvert whose emotional baggage has kept him from fully embracing life. After years of what is almost solitude, he invites Bianca, a friend he met on the internet to visit him. He introduces Bianca to his brother Gus and his wife Karen and they are stunned. They don't know what to say to Lars or Bianca--because she is a life-size doll, not a real person and he is treating her as though she is alive. They consult the family doctor Dagmar who explains this is a delusion he's created--for what reason she doesn't yet know but they should all go along with it. What follows is an emotional journey for Lars and the people around him.

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

Lars and the Real Girl Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

MGM continues their streak of pushing catalog titles onto Blu-ray with severely outdated-looking transfers. Lars and the Real Girl sports a 1080p/AVC encode, but I'm guessing it was sourced from an old high definition master for the film's DVD release, because, frankly, the image exhibits an issue that most studios have wised up to by now: edge enhancement. The artificial sharpening is simply out of control here, leaving many outlines with sometimes white, sometimes black haloes. It's distracting, it doesn't make the picture look any clearer, and—in high definition—it actually makes it look much worse, especially if you've got a large screen. I really don't think we'd see this if the film had been given an all-new, specifically-prepared-for-Blu- ray transfer. On the plus side, edge enhancement's frequent companion—digital noise reduction—doesn't show up here, or at least not in excess. Grain looks natural, and the print is fairly clean, with only a few white specks popping up on occasion. Does the film look better here than it does on DVD? Marginally, but the rampant edge enhancement doesn't help and the encode lacks truly fine detail, as most textures—except in the tightest close-ups— have a murky, unresolved quality. Color is bleak and dominated by a grayish cast, but this is all part of the film's dim north-mid-western vibe. Contrast is a bit weak though, and I suspect that blacks could stand to be a bit darker and highlights brighter. Overall, this is a disappointing showing, and—in my opinion—not worth the upgrade from DVD.


Lars and the Real Girl Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There's really not much to say about the film's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which may have well been in stereo, because there really isn't any substantial rear channel involvement. This is a quiet, dialogue-driven film, and most of the mix is located firmly up front and center. You'll hear very minimal ambience in the rear channels on rare occasions, and there are a few instances where music is panned into the surrounds—like the Talking Heads song during the party scene—but that's about it. Still, there's nothing worth complaining about here. David Torn's score sounds wonderful, the incidental music has adequate presence, and aside from a few spots when voices seem a hair low, dialogue is balanced, prioritized, and easy to understand.
