Nature Calls

 (2012)

Nature Calls Blu-ray features mediocre video and solid audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

Polar-opposite brothers Randy and Kirk never saw eye-to-eye, but their rivalry is taken to a new level when Randy hijacks Kirk's son's sleepover, taking the boys on a Scout Trip to remember.

For more about Nature Calls and the Nature Calls Blu-ray release, see Nature Calls Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 1.5 out of 5.

Nature Calls Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Nature Calls blows, and it's 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu-ray transfer isn't so hot either. The movie was shot on the ever-popular and capable Red One camera, but the picture is almost perpetually soft, lacking truly fine detail in all but the tightest closeups. I'm not sure if this was due to an inept focus puller, cheap lenses, or whether the image has been given a slight noise reduction daubing—my money's on all three—but the picture just isn't up to the standard set by previous movies shot on the Red system. And then there's the flat lighting and dull production design, which scream "low-budget comedy." The color grading goes for a mostly realistic look, and both saturation and contrast seem decently balanced, with no ruddy skin tones or overly crushed blacks, but it's hard to be impressed by the video quality. Along with the softness, you'll also notice some slight compression artifacting at times if you pixel peep. Not that any of this matters much. The film made less than $400 theatrically—playing on two screens for one weekend—and I doubt it'll move many Blu-ray units.


Nature Calls Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The movie features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that gets the job done capably, with Boy Scout-like humility. That is, there's nothing that really stands out here, audio-wise, but there are no real slip-ups either. Most of the mix is staked down in the front channels, but ambience and occasional effects do fly loose in the surround speakers, from wind and bird calls and insect clamor to fireworks exploding raucously in all directions. Backing up the onscreen action is some chipper original music by Ryan Miller (Safety Not Guaranteed) and Joseph Stevens (Eastbound & Down), which has suitable clarity and presence. Most importantly—or least, perhaps, in this case—the inane dialogue is always cleanly recorded, balanced at the top of the mix, and easily understood. For that that might need or want them, the disc also includes English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
