Pinocchio

 (1940)

Pinocchio Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Lonely woodcarver Geppetto longs for a child, and his wish is partially granted when the Blue Fairy brings his wooden marionette Pinocchio to life. In order to become a real boy, Pinocchio must prove himself worthy. He sets out into the world, accompanied by his "conscience," Jiminy Cricket. Pinocchio is led astray by the wicked fox J. Worthington Fowlfellow, first to "a life in the theater"- Stromboli's puppet show - and then to Pleasure Island, where boys behave like (and become!) jackasses. Pinocchio redeems himself by saving Geppetto from Monstro, the whale.

Pinocchio Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

After earning critical accolades for its immaculate frame-by-frame remastering of Sleeping Beauty, Disney has chosen Pinocchio to receive its next 1080p/AVC-encoded treatment, granting the 1940 classic a thorough restoration and producing one of the finest traditional animation transfers on the market. The film's colors have been completely reinvigorated, giving each scene tremendous vibrancy, depth, and dimensionality. Even so, the newly-minted 1.33:1 image never feels overworked or insincere, instead allowing its modern artisans the privilege of paying homage to their Disney forbearers. Detail is equally impressive -- the hand-painted backgrounds are wonderfully textured, minor elements on each character is more apparent than ever before, and the lineart is exceptionally crisp and well-defined. More importantly, the picture is incredibly clean and stable. Artifacting, print damage, and noise are non-existent, black levels are rich and deep, and contrast is attractive and, dare I say, flawless.

As it stands, I couldn't find much of anything to complain about... a welcome rarity in my position, I assure you. Pinocchio looks so amazing that I can't wait to see what Disney will do with the rest of its beloved canon in the years to come.


Pinocchio Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The relative low-point of Pinocchio's Blu-ray debut is undoubtedly its DTS HD 7.1 Master Audio track. Don't get me wrong, I can't imagine the film sounding much better than it does here, but voices alternate between thin and stuffy, LFE-laden effects are slightly inconsistent from scene to scene, and directionality is a bit artificial and spotty. Honestly, I preferred listening to the restored mono mix, if for no other reason than to revisit the film as it was meant to be heard. Still, it's impossible to criticize Disney's efforts and investment. A 7.1 surround track may seem like overkill to some, but I found the film's audio elements had been treated with extreme care, leaving little doubt in my mind as to how serious the studio is in presenting their catalog classics with all the bells and whistles available in this modern age without sacrificing the integrity of a film's original presentation. In that regard, Pinocchio offers an impressive audio package that does its best with the inherent limitations of its source material. Considering the film is celebrating its 70th anniversary, that's saying something.
