ParaNorman 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

ParaNorman springs to life with a flawless 1080p/MVC-encoded 3D video transfer that showcases the film's grim, ghoulish wonders beautifully. Breaking from convention, Butler and Fell shot all 400,000 stop-frames of the movie with sixty Canon EOS 5D Mark II SLR cameras rather than traditional 3D video equipment, using two carefully aligned SLR cameras to capture the left and right images that compose each 3D frame. To the filmmakers' immense credit, the resulting high definition presentation and 3D experience is as crisp, refined, convincing and immersive as any 3D animation fan could hope for. Edges are sharp and clean, textures are incredibly revealing, and delineation is excellent. Even minuscule frame-by-frame facial variations are wonderfully apparent, without any blip, blemish or significant artifact to report. Aliasing is a no show, crush isn't an issue, and crosstalk isn't a major factor (or a product of the technical encode for that matter). Screen-erupting visuals are in short supply, sure, but the depth of ParaNorman's world is extraordinary and, like the best 3D stop-motion animation on the market, is as close as most filmfans will come to standing in the studio and studying the actual puppets and models. Moreover, colors are striking and vibrant, primaries are rich and rewarding, and black levels are suitably ominous.

If I have any complaint it's that the darkness of the second and third acts dampens some of the image's noteworthy depth and dimensionality ever so slightly, leading to several relatively flat sequences that fail to pop as readily as brighter scenes. The tint of the 3D glasses is the culprit, though, not the encode or its faithfulness, and anyone who's well-acquainted with the limitations of 3D presentations will shrug it off instantly. "Stunning" is probably too strong a word for the 3D version, at least as far as every shot and scene is concerned, but it comes awfully close. Close enough to warrant high marks all around.


ParaNorman 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't quite wake the dead but it'll give 'em a good shake. The LFE channel scares up supernatural storms, apocalyptic chaos, chilling moans and groans, and deep, hair-raising thooms without incident, and the rear speakers match it all crash for smash. Winds howl from every direction. Zombies shamble up behind unsuspecting viewers. Ghostly wails echo across the soundfield. The monstrous roar of a vindictive witch fills the room. And Jon Brion's score is the marrow to the tireless soundscape's bones, rising from every eerie silence with purpose and presence. Dialogue doesn't disappoint either. Voices are clean, clear and perfectly prioritized, and whispers are as intelligible as cries for help. Simply put, ParaNorman's AV presentation is terrific.
