Monster's Ball

 (2001)

Monster's Ball Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Hank, an embittered prison guard, lives with his aging racist father, Buck, and his own twenty something son, Sonny. Hank and Sonny work for the local prison where they are preparing the electric chair for a black inmate. After the man is executed, Hank falls in love with Letitia, the inmate's widow. This emotionally charged affair forces Hank to re-evaluate how deeply prison work and his father's infectious hatred have affected his soul.

Monster's Ball Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Lionsgate brings Monster's Ball to Bluray in a 1080p/AVC encoding framed at 2:35:1 aspect ratio that quite frankly is dogged by a bit by the use of DNR and edge enhancement. The images on screen do justice to the storyline as often the film is under saturated, skin tones pale, and often monochromatic in look. Black levels were stable, very deep and inky without being crushed. Shadow detail was only average though, as some scenes didn't look fleshed out going into the darker areas of the picture. I also detected some print master related issues as it appears to have sporadic speckles, pops, and film scratches. It's not like it right in your face, but it certainly is noticeable on occasion. It's not that the picture quality is horrible, but the flaws are in your face, and its hard to miss them. Once again, for film the images are just too clean, devoid of any film grain which makes it look like a good video tranfer, instead of film. In the end the picture quality isn't horrible, it just does not stand up to the best tranfers that I have seen, and the use of DNR and edge enhancement keeps it from being a really good transfer.


Monster's Ball Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Monster's Ball is about characters, and as such the audio is about dialog. The 5.1 Dts-HD Master Audio takes care of this nicely, as it is always clear and never crushed by the other elements within the mix. You are treated to a great deal of scene by scene ambience that is subtle, but noticeable. Silence is used often as a vehicle for emotions, and it comes from a deep acoustical darkness which shows extremely low track noise. The music while appropriately haunting, does not come into the room clearly. It sounds veiled, slightly low fi, but does convey the darkness and hopelessness of the picture. LFE is used infrequently, though the surrounds are used pretty effectively in the music. This track is not going to make your sub sing, or push your main speakers to the edge of their existence, but it does get you in the right mood for the picture.
