Monty Python's The Meaning of Life Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) does feature some mild filtering, with slight ringing and a small amount of motion blur detected. Fine detail is acceptable if never remarkable, with facial particulars offering a slightly waxy appearance, though the HD viewing experience does benefit from a sharper look at production design accomplishments and make-up work. Colors reveal limited fade, with healthy reds and blues bringing costuming to life, while animation also carries snappy hues. Skintones are acceptable, communicating changes in health and location cleanly. Blacks are stable but far from rich, solidifying on occasion, though distances are available for study. Print displays some white speckling. The viewing experience is acceptable, supporting the limited scope of the picture, but there's no sparkling remaster here to truly push out the textures of the work.


Monty Python's The Meaning of Life Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix clings to the front stage for the most part, with a slightly uneven balance of scoring and dialogue exchanges, which register a tad soft for such a mighty comedic endeavor, requiring a little extra juice for the center channel. Musical numbers are where the track really shines, with a full, lush presentation of singing and instrumentation, offering a pleasing low-end to ground the spectacle. Surrounds are engaged for circular music reach, showing true isolation during the "Find a Fish" segment, where audience participation elements offer separation. Comedy interests are never muffled, with crisp articulation.
