Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Director Silberling asked cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezski (Gravity) to shoot Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events because of Lubezski's work on Sleepy Hollow, which had the same spectral quality that Silberling wanted for the world that threatens the Baudelaire children. Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, from a Paramount transfer, captures Lubezski's delicate and ghostly lighting, which, as Silberling notes in his commentary, often emanates from no identifiable source. As the Baudelaire children move from one environment to another, the film's palette shifts dramatically, from the sickly and dim recesses of Count Olaf's home to the brightly lit and colorful interiors of Uncle Monty's, to the faded rooms of Aunt Josephine's, where everything looks fragile (and turns out to be). Blacks are solid, bright colors (when they occur) are properly saturated, and contrast levels are appropriate. Fine detail is well-rendered, which allows the viewer to appreciate the minutia of the production design, which is crammed with oddities and visual jokes.

Lemony Snicket was finished on a digital intermediate, from which the Blu-ray was presumably sourced. As those familiar with the DI process should understand, issues such as high frequency filtering and artificial sharpening are rendered moot with a DI, because, to the extent they are applied, such digital manipulation happens during the DI and becomes part of the finished film released for public consumption. The Blu-ray simply replicates the DI colorist's work as approved by the film's cinematographer and/or director. No doubt due to the large number of extras, Warner has placed the film on a BD-50, with an average bitrate of 24.96 Mbps, which is not overly generous but is certainly adequate to reproduce the film's active scenes and complicated imagery without compression issues.


Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The complexities of Lemony Snicket's 5.1 audio mix, encoded on Blu-ray in lossless DTS-HD MA, are explored in several of the comprehensive extras, which address both the elaborate sound effects and the delicate orchestral score by Thomas Newman. The Blu-ray's soundtrack brings out all the subtle layerings in the mix, especially in distinctive environments like Uncle Monty's home, where the hissing and rattling of snakes are everywhere, and Aunt Josephine's creaking abode, which the film's sound designer aptly described as "a contractor's nightmare". The destructive impact of a hurricane registers with fierce intensity, and an attack by the Lachrymose Leaches is a shrieking nightmare on all sides. There's also a nasty close encounter with an oncoming train. All of these experiences register with solid impact, broad dynamic range and, where appropriate, deep bass extension. Somehow, the dialogue always manages to rise above it all, even with Jim Carrey's various thick accents.
