Much Ado About Nothing Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Some of MGM's recent catalog re-releases have been visually disappointing—with transfers sourced from outdated masters—but I have no major issues with Much Ado About Nothing's 1080p/AVC encode, which generally looks strong. The print shows a few white specks and minor scratches here and there, and there are moments of unexplained softness—sometimes switching between clear and slightly blurry within a single scene—but grain is mostly natural-looking and edge enhancement, while visible on occasion, never rises to the level of a distraction. For the most part, the picture displays appreciable high definition clarity, pulling detail out of the intricate period costuming, the fine textures of the actors' faces, and the individual whiskers of Kenneth Branagh's perfectly groomed, Just For Men-style beard. While certain hues can seem just a hair "hot" at times—lightly oversaturated, like the too-pink skin tones—color balance is better than acceptable and there's a pleasing warmth to the Tuscan sun-drenched image. Likewise, black levels are adequately dense and contrast is neither too pushed nor flat. That is, just right. Finally, compression noise is kept to a minimum, and there are no overt banding, blocking, or aliasing issues.


Much Ado About Nothing Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

While some may have wished for a full-on multi-channel presentation, I have no qualms with Much Ado's DTS 2.0 stereo track, which competently handles the film's limited sonic requirements. Well, there is one cause for complaint: Both the disc's menu and the back of the Blu-ray case claim that the film features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio track, when, in fact, this simply isn't true. How much better would the film sound with a lossless mix? That's debatable. It would probably be a hair brighter, cleaner, and fuller, but I don't think most viewers/listeners will be able to tell the difference. It's a shame Fox wouldn't just automatically use a DTS-HD Master Audio Track, but I wouldn't get too hung up over it. This is a low-key film, audio wise, and the included mix sounds just fine. This being Shakespeare and all, you can expect the emphasis to remain firmly on the sharp, rapid-fire dialogue. The voices are clear and intelligible in the mix throughout—no crackles, hisses, drop-outs, or muffling—but if you want to catch all the nuance of what's being said, the disc's many subtitle options will certainly come in handy. Patrick Doyle's orchestral score accompanies the story's changing moods well, and although the music can come across a bit brash in the high end, it's never shrill or tinny. This is a rather unremarkable mix, not because it's flawed, but literally—there's not much to say about it. Where it counts though—clean, easy on the ears dialogue—you won't be disappointed.
