Pineapple Express Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sony's "Mastered in 4K" Blu-rays, like the Superbit DVDs of yesteryear, offer a premium experience on a familiar format, and do so to stunning, albeit marginally improved results. Though produced from newly minted 4K masters, the studio's premium presentations have been downscaled to standard 1080p resolution to make them compatible with current BD hardware. Even early adopters with 4K TVs will see the same upgrade as those with standard HD televisions, making the "Mastered in 4K" discs a novelty at best, a gimmick at worst. Obsessive videophiles with 1080p displays will happily savor the uptick in bitrate, no matter how limited the discernible video quality may be, while those who've spent a pretty penny on 4K tech will be left disappointed, wondering when oh when true 4K presentations will begin to surface.

The newly mastered version of Pineapple Express offers a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's noticeably more refined than its 2009 counterpart, although, even at four years old, the original, highly scored 2009 Blu-ray release is certainly no slouch. Grain is a touch crisper and consistent, skintones are a bit more natural, delineation is more forgiving (with far less crush), and the image isn't susceptible to any artifacting, banding or compression anomalies whatsoever. Then again, the standard version remains quite striking, and only side-by-side comparisons, and more specifically screenshot-to-screenshot comparisons, demonstrate just how superior the newly mastered presentation is. There is the small matter of what can be perceived by the naked eye in motion, of course. If asked to distinguish one transfer from the other in a random sampling of scenes, most viewers wouldn't be able to identify the correct source 100% of the time. That said, if you know what you're looking for, the boost in detail, richness and clarity, while still rather minor, is apparent throughout.

That's not to suggest the newly mastered presentation is leaps and bounds beyond its predecessor, or that the film couldn't possibly look better than it does here. However, this is without a doubt Pineapple Express at its purest and most flawless, at least insofar as 1080p Blu-ray encoding can hope to deliver. Only a true 4K-ready disc could offer more. While patiently waiting for the future to arrive, though, there's no shame in enjoying an impeccable 1080p transfer, especially at a reasonably low pricepoint. The film's palette is warm and natural, with lovely color saturation and primaries. Black levels are rich and bottomless, without any crush as far as I could see. Contrast is dialed in beautifully from beginning to end, and never falters or fails. Detail is outstanding, with razor-wire definition, eye-popping textures and a perfectly filmic veneer of grain. Better still, the image is free of any issues and eyesores, minus a few instances of negligible ringing. What more could a Rogen-n-Franco fan ask for? Other than the real 4K deal, that is.

Pineapple Express Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Armed to the teeth with gunfire, explosions, car crashes and splatterific ultraviolence, Pineapple Express breaks through the genre's usual monotony with a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track that makes itself known from start to finish. While the film's shoot-em-up sonics aren't quite as sophisticated or dynamic as those in more focused action spectacles, low-end support still adds plenty of punch, power and notable oomph to the on-screen chaos. Frantic sequences boast precision directionality, slick cross-channel pans, and an immersive soundfield brimming with activity, both in the front and rear. All the while, dialogue is crisp, clear and perfectly prioritized at all times, even in the midst of the madness that is the film's third act. Yes, Express's sound design is a tad uneven, hopping from conversational comedy to splashy action sequences without much grace, sometimes leading to front-heavy scenes that won't challenge anyone's surround system. And yet even scenes that exercise restraint feature enough assertive ambience and convincing acoustics to keep things interesting. All told, Pineapple Express sounds great, just as it did in 2009 when it first arrived on Blu-ray.
