Oceans Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Overflowing with exquisite, unequivocally breathtaking high definition photography, Oceans was already a feast for the eyes. On Blu-ray, it's even more magnificent. Rising from the dark depths of the sea with an exceedingly filmic, utterly captivating 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, Perrin and Cluzaud's sweeping documentary boasts a disarming palette, gorgeous fine textures and a wonderfully proficient presentation worthy of serious praise. Colors, though subject to the intensity of the sun and the transparency of the planet's waters, are lifelike and natural, and primaries are refreshingly tempered yet wholly engrossing. This is the ocean as it appears, not as overzealous color-timing and paint-by-numbers nature documentaries would have us believe. Even so, the filmmakers have gone to great lengths to make many of their most problematic shots look spectacular. Murky, dirty and polluted waters aren't uncommon in Oceans, but the photography continues to impress nonetheless. And while perceived contrast inconsistencies and a few brief bursts of increased noise are unfortunate side effects, the transfer itself doesn't falter. The smallest scales on a fleeing fish, the tiniest proteins floating within a microscopic organism, a cloud of tail-flicking krill surrounding a weathered blue whale, the stones and corral littering every sea bed, the rough skin of a great white, the soft leaves of underwater plants, the bristling defensive measures employed by deep sea prey, the dangling tentacles of dozens of jelly fish... all clearer, more sharply defined and more perfectly resolved than I thought possible. Moreover, the film's restrained, ever-present grain field is intact and the faithfulness of Disney's encode is nothing short of remarkable.

As it stands, the only three gripes brewing in my brain amount to a trio of easy-to-overlook nitpicks. Banding, while faint and fleeting, is apparent from time to time (although I had to actively scan the backgrounds to notice any), the slightest bit of ringing affects a handful of shots (the worst of which curses a lighthouse with thick halos) and the aforementioned grain occasionally suffers from a digitized sheen. Again though, I probably made all of that sound much worse than it actually is. Make no mistake, Disney's transfer is as amazing as Oceans itself. The presentation isn't 100% perfect, but it looks phenomenal.


Oceans Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Oceans roars onto Blu-ray with an absorbing, chill-inducing DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track; one that revels in the daunting power of every crashing wave, surges with the soaring strings of Bruno Coulais' score, and ebbs and flows with every skitter and splash that graces Perrin and and Cluzaud's undersea soundscape. While Pierce Brosnan's soulful, storybook narration remains crisp, clean, clear and smartly centered throughout, it by no means dominates the proceedings. Oceans is a documentary of incredible sounds and mesmerizing music, all of which erupts from every direction and floods the stage with conviction. Low-end output is bold and earthy, lending the full weight of the LFE channel to every surfacing whale, terrifying tide, storm-ravaged ship, raging storm and crushing current the filmmakers commit to film. Likewise, the rear speakers make their presence known from the outset, submersing the listener in the wonders of the ocean. Jelly fish realistically glide across the soundfield, crooning whale song fills the room, an army of crabs creep along the floor, distant thunder ripples from channel to channel, Coulais' orchestration billows brilliantly and a multi-species feeding frenzy becomes just that: an enveloping frenzy. Moreover, dynamics, pans, separation, directionality... it all combines to create an arresting experience. In fact, the entire track is more immersive, more overwhelming than any lossless documentary mix I've reviewed. No oddities, no issues, no shortcomings, no disappointments whatsoever. Enjoy.
