Moby Dick Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Moby Dick is presented on Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This made for television film is intentionally desaturated almost all of the time, with a deliberately filtered image that skew toward the slate grey side of things. This approach robs flesh tones of a lot saturation, and indeed a lot of this film almost looks like a moving daguerreotype, certainly something the filmmakers wanted to achieve. Fine detail is best in close-ups though some of the wide shots also boast impressive levels of depth of field and overall precision. Several of the CGI elements are too smooth for their own good, especially the establishing shots of the Pequod's port and Moby himself. The image's overall clarity and sharpness is not helped by the trendy (and perhaps inappropriate) use of handheld, "jiggly" cameras that frequently make individual moments, especially those at sea, little more than a blur. But when things settle down, the image pops rather nicely, despite its desaturation, with excellent fine detail, decent contrast and generally solid black levels.


Moby Dick Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Moby Dick's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 comes fully alive once the Pequod takes off on its epic journey, but even before that a couple of group scenes bristle with nice surround activity. The opening hour or so of the movie is spent in introducing characters and is therefore a bit on the quiet side, but once we're on the ship, there's some consistent surround activity courtesy of the omnipresent sounds of the ocean and the men moving about the ship. Fidelity is excellent throughout this track and there's some rather surprisingly wide dynamic range employed over the course of the three hour or so film. Dialogue is clean, though occasionally hard to make out due to some actors' over use of dialects and accents. Sound effects are very well integrated into this film and provide a wealth of immersion (no pun intended, considering the film's watery setting).
