Meet Joe Black Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Rampant edge enhancement will be the death of me one of these days, just wait and see. Meet Joe Black would look fantastic (does look fantastic, many will no doubt argue) if it weren't for a single unfortunate issue: the presence of glaring edge halos. It isn't the worst I've seen, far from it, but it's hard to miss and sometimes amounts to a sizable distraction. For a moment, I even considered docking the video score a bit more. But I soon calmed down, realized I was only dealing with one major issue in an otherwise solid presentation, and settled on a nice, judicious 3.5 instead. Needless to say, if you aren't sure what an edge halo is, thank the gods; you'll probably fall head over heels for Universal's 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer, which is identical to its 2007 HD DVD counterpart.

Colors are strong -- with a welcome hint of the cinematic opulence Brest and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki infused in each romantic rendezvous -- even if contrast is too hot for its own good (with stark, crushed whites that rob the image of its intended richness during daytime scenes) and skintones are sometimes either a touch too pink, slightly sun-bleached or both. That said, primaries deliver, delineation is decent, and black levels are, for the most part, deep and billowing, draping Death in long, inky shadows. Meanwhile, detail is excellent, with crisply resolved fine textures and a never-ending lineup of lovely closeups. Exactly how much of the resulting clarity is attributable to artificial sharpening is a bit of a mystery but, again, the halos that appear are the only thing that take any serious toll. Artifacting, banding, smearing and other unwelcome guests never crash the party, and a faint veneer of grain is intact and unobtrusive. All in all, I was quite pleased with the presentation, despite the fact that creating a new, more faithful master would have done wonders for the film and its subsequent transfer.


Meet Joe Black Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Meet Joe Black enchants with a pleasantly enveloping DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Dialogue is clean, clear and well-prioritized throughout, and the film's scampish soundscape is bristling with delicate effects and convincing diners, board rooms, mansions and birthday galas. The rear speakers are coy but playful, working a fair amount of magic despite the fact that Brest's romance mainly involves conversations, conversations and more conversations. (Oh, and did I mention hushed conversations?) Whirring helicopters, bustling hospital halls, and crowded parties stand out, but Parish mostly frequents spacious rooms, lonely studies, and quiet offices, immersive as each one turns out to be. Thomas Newman's score is the real highlight of the mix, though, filling the soundfield with stirring strings, dancing from speaker to speaker, tapping into the resonance of the LFE channel, and sweeping listeners away in the grand romance of it all. Ultimately, Universal's lossless efforts are an exercise in precision and restraint. If you have any love of the film, you'll thoroughly enjoy what its sprightly mix offers.
