Lee Daniels' The Butler Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Butler isn't the most attractive movie to land on Blu-ray in 2014, but it holds its own nicely enough. Anchor Bay's 1080p presentation appears faithful to a source that often looks a bit dreamy, slightly blown out and bright. Still, it commands solid details and strong clarity throughout, showcasing complex facial features, clothing lines, and the many regal accents around the White House with ease and attention to accuracy. Grasses and old, weathered wood seen in a critical scene near the end are also very well defined. Colors are bright and even. Red carpeting and gold trim around the White House are particularly fabulous. That same near-end scene with the grass and wood also reveals some very nice, bold colors on the Gaines' jumpsuits. Black levels are fine, and flesh tones appear even. Grain is moderately thick throughout most of the movie. While it's not reference material by its very nature, Anchor Bay has released a quality upper end presentation that should satisfy most all viewers.


Lee Daniels' The Butler Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Butler's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack is quite good. There's a nice orchestral score to open, balanced across the stage and featuring particularly good accuracy from its clean highs, deep lows, and even midrange. Musical presence remains a strength throughout the film. A good number of environmental sound effects effectively pull the listener into several locales, from the cotton fields of 1926 that spring to life with the din of chirping birds and buzzing insects to some of the more sonically robust and complex moments from the height of the civil rights era. Driving rain and cracking thunder effects prove even and enveloping in those scenes in which they appear. A fair bit of bass accompanies a few overlaid explosions heard during some vintage Vietnam news footage. Dialogue flows evenly and consistently from the center. This is a very well done track, from nuanced elements to flowing score and everything else it has to offer.
