Oliver & Company

 (1988)

Oliver & Company Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

This contemporary re-telling of Charles Dickens' classic story follows the misadventures of an orphaned kitten who is taken in by a pack of pickpocket dogs, headed by Dodger, the coolest quadruped in Manhattan and their human master, Fagin. When a little girl from Fifth Avenue finds Oliver and takes him uptown to live among the swells, Fagin's evil boss, Sykes steps in and kidnaps the pair. His nasty plan to keep Oliver from having his customary nine lives is foiled however, when the ransomed kitty's "Bow-wow-wow"-ery buddies decide to use their street savoir faire in order to rescue their feline friend!

For more about Oliver & Company and the Oliver & Company Blu-ray release, see Oliver & Company Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Oliver & Company Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Oliver & Company sports a decent 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer that's rougher around the edges than Robin Hood but not nearly the disaster that is The Sword in the Stone. First the good. Colors are bright and vibrant (a bit too bright, more on that in a moment), primaries bear their teeth on more than one occasion, and blacks are nice and inky (if you guessed a bit too inky, you're on to something). Detail is also quite serviceable, with crisp line art, passably resolved background brushstrokes, and a general boost in clarity that represents a notable improvement over the disc's standard DVD counterparts. Unfortunately, it doesn't amount to much more than an average upgrade, and that's where the trouble festers. Noise reduction has, once again, been applied to clean up dust, dirt, nicks and grain in the original elements, and, once again, the process has taken its toll. The ill-begotten side effects aren't anywhere near as egregious as those that cripple The Smear in the Stone remaster, but the de-graining is also a tad heavier and more taxing on the film than the DNR applied to Robin Hood's master. Not that noise reduction is the biggest issue here. That would be the presentation's contrast leveling, which has been cranked much too high. The image is often washed out and over-bright, further suppressing the more natural filmic qualities of the elements and robbing the movie of its true tone and texture. Too many scenes are dishearteningly dark, too many scenes suffer from bleached hues, and the finest details are sometimes lost at either extreme. Oliver & Company may not be my favorite Disney classic, but it certainly deserves more tender loving care than this.


Oliver & Company Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Of the three August 6th Disney releases, Oliver & Company's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track features the most assertive rear speaker activity. However, the resulting soundfield isn't consistently full or enveloping. Streetside sequences offer a nice sense of atmosphere, but interiors, alleyway conversations and most other scenes are flat and front-heavy, which makes for a hit or miss experience. And while that very well may be nitpicking, particularly since it traces back to the film's original sound design, it proved to be something of a slight distraction. Otherwise, there isn't much to complain about. Voices are clean and clear, with smart prioritization and very few muffled lines. Some tininess and hiss creeps in from time to time, but nothing I'd call an outright issue. Moreover, LFE output is restrained but reliable, dynamics are commendable, pans are smooth, and the score and songs sound better than ever. All things considered, it's a solid lossless experience; just not one you'll remember long after it ends.
