Muppet Treasure Island & The Great Muppet Caper Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Great Muppet Caper: Two words: rough stuff. Though purportedly restored, The Great Muppet Caper's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer doesn't look so hot, and doesn't come close to touching Disney's Muppet Movie presentation, which debuted earlier this year. Grain is intact, no argument there, but it's quite unnatural, with chunky, soupy stretches that are neither refined nor very filmic. Add to that some smearing (not to be confused with softness, of which there are numerous instances as well as a prevailing quality), slight ringing, minor artifacting, intermittent crush and an at-times alarming lack of detail and you have an image that shares too much in common with its DVD counterpart. Thankfully, colors have been bolstered, black levels are nice and deep, contrast is more vibrant, the encode is more proficient and a few shots fare reasonably well, without much to complain about or criticize. Be that as it may, the bad sadly outweighs the good, making Caper's presentation a rather resounding disappointment.

Muppet Treasure Island: Muppet Treasure Island offers a more attractive and appealing 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation than its disc-mate, but still has a few issues of its own. Specifically a slew of sequences in which color and contrast are dull and undersaturated. Part of the blame lies with John Fenner's photography and the film's original look, unwieldy as it can be, but there's no reason a few adjustments couldn't have been used to lend the palette more consistency. Fortunately, detail is commendable and textures are decently resolved on the whole, with only a handful of shots and scenes that are worse for the wear (most of which pop up near the beginning of the film). Skintones are generally pleasing (despite the dominance of muddier hues early on), primaries pop and blacks are satisfying. There's also little to no macroblocking, banding and other anomalies, bringing Muppet Treasure Island more in line with the still-superior Muppet Christmas Carol transfer.


Muppet Treasure Island & The Great Muppet Caper Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Great Muppet Caper: Caper may have been shot fifteen years earlier, but it serves up the more desirable lossless mix of Disney's twofer with a decidedly decent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. (Muppet Treasure Island forfeits LFE support with a DTS-HD MA 5.0 mix.) The difference in the films' age obviously plays a role in Caper's subsequent sonics, with a somewhat harsher, tinnier soundscape than Island. But dialogue is, more often than not, clean and clear, the rear speakers engage enough to make their presence known, and low-end output is fairly robust for a thirty-three-year old catalog title. There's not a lot to write home about, as you might expect, but the track gets the job done. I wasn't really anticipating much more than that.

Muppet Treasure Island: On the one hand, Muppet Treasure Island sounds fuller, richer and more bombastic than Caper. But all by way of a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.0 surround track, which dispenses with proper LFE output. The experience still has some weight and heft courtesy of the other channels, but a high seas adventure can use whatever oomph it can get. Otherwise, all is well. Not spectacular, mind you. But all is well. Dialogue is intelligible and carefully prioritized, with only a small sampling of lines falling by the wayside or being drowned in the madcap action; the rear speakers employ light, playful touches, even though directionality leaves something to be desired; and the soundfield is enveloping enough to make the music and songs more involving. Again, I wouldn't call any of it remarkable, but it does what it does without any serious issues.
