Love Actually

 (2003)

Love Actually Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Everywhere you look, love is causing chaos. From the bachelor Prime Minister of the United Kingdom who, on his first day at 10 Downing Street, falls in love with the girl who brings him his tea, to a hopeless sandwich delivery guy who doesn't think he has a chance with the girls in the U.K., so he heads for Wisconsin. From aging rock stars, to a stony headmistress, to a monolingual Portuguese housemaid--love arrives in many forms, shapes and sizes. Here, ten separate--but intertwining--stories of love all lead up to a big climax on Christmas Eve, proving that love is the driving force in all of these people's lives.

For more about Love Actually and the Love Actually Blu-ray release, see Love Actually Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman

Love Actually Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The 2013 release of Love Actually includes the US version of the film, while the 2009 release features the UK version. The differences are primarily limited to song choices as far as I can tell (Kelly Clarkson's "The Trouble With Love Is" replaces the Sugarbabes' "Too Lost in You" and "Jump (For My Love)" by Girls Aloud), but the variation is worth noting.

Of all the Universal catalog releases available on Blu-ray, Love Actually wasn't one that called for a new transfer. And yet here it is: a new 1080p video presentation, minted from a new 10th Anniversary digital restoration. What's even stranger, though, is that, at first glance -- and second, third and fourth glances -- the 2013 transfer bears such a striking resemblance to its 2009 predecessor that I had a hard time accepting the claim that the two weren't the same. Only upon closer examination, with near-frame by frame scrutiny, did its slight improvements become remotely visible. In fact, without a side by side comparison, the two could easily be labeled identical twins, which is exactly what I suspect many will deem the two. So what's changed? Fine detail is the tiniest bit more refined. (Best way to spot the difference? Keep your eyes locked on the grain field, the hair on faces and arms, and the fabric on sweaters for a handful of instances where the new presentation nudges past the old.) Edge definition is a touch more natural (albeit, again, only in a scant few shots). And, in hindsight, a few instances of negligible artifacting that snuck into the 2009 image are MIA.

Is it enough to call for an increase in video score? Technically. While the 2009 transfer earned a 4.0, I'm awarding give this one a 4.25, which in our system rounds up to a 4.5. Does the new presentation warrant a full half-point boost? Honestly no, the two are so similar it's a mystery why any time and effort was invested in restoring the film. Is it perfect? Not quite. There are still a few issues, although most of the things videophiles will criticize -- e.g. the brightness of the image, the uptick in noise that haunts darker scenes -- trace back to the source and original photography. As for the restoration and encode, exceedingly minor red and black crush is still at play (take a split-second look at Natalie's cherry red coat in the closing airport scene), skintones are occasionally a wee bit too warm (during Jamie's restaurant proposal for one), and a few white specks still pepper select scenes (watch Mark and Juliet's closeups when he arrives at her doorstep with a special Christmas message). But let me be very clear: each instance amounts to the briefest of moments, so much so that they're hardly worth mentioning.

So, all that being said, does the 10th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray release justify its existence? Not as far as I'm concerned. If you already own the 2009 version, there's very, very little reason to double dip. But am I about to complain? Nope. I'd rather Universal had addressed issues with numerous catalog classics that suffer with more problematic transfers, sure. I could name a dozen off the top of my head that desperately need a new digital restoration. But those who don't already own Love Actually now have their chance.


Love Actually Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Can a chatty romantic comedy and its faithful but front-heavy DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track surpass expectation and woo audiophiles? When Love Actually's music kicks in, absolutely. Both the film's orchestral score and pop-infused soundtrack sound wonderful, filling every speaker with rewarding tones and satisfying swells. However, when the music subsides, all that remains are conversations, whispers, laughs, and pithy banter, hardly the makings of a sonic powerhouse. Beyond bass beats, LFE output is subtle and subdued; beyond strings, rear speaker activity is limited to light ambience; beyond horn runs, the soundscape is only punctuated by dialogue. Of course, anything more would undermine the integrity of the original mix, rendering Universal's lossless track a somewhat underwhelming but thoroughly respectful offering. There are moments of note -- Rickman and Thompson's shopping trip drops the listener in the middle of a bustling mall, a children's holiday play features convincing auditorium acoustics, and Neeson and Sangstar airport run is suitably involving -- but prepare yourself for an inherently limited, oft-times two-dimensional experience.
