Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Not since the release of "Casino Royale" has a blu-ray title generated this much excitement. "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" makes full use of the BD-50 format with 1080p MPEG-4 AVC video and uncompressed LPCM audio. Those are the ingredients of a gorgeous picture and rich soundstage. You won't see Pirates in the HD-DVD bins. But you will see true reference quality when you watch this first film in the trilogy of Jack Sparrow and blacksmith Will Turner (Orlando Bloom).

The scenes that take place in open daylight were especially impressive. Near the beginning, the view from the governor's mansion, showing a bay and harbor, demonstrate breathtaking depth and richness. The view was so convincing that it seemed as if I could step into my plasma, head down to the beach, roll up my pants and wade in the clear blue waters. Effortless detail from the facial hair on Depp's chin to the embroidery on Keira Knightley's dress leap from the screen. The likes of this picture quality I had not seen since Casino Royale. It may have even surpassed the Bond Blu-ray.

HDTV enthusiasts have a winner here. Disney Pictures has used the BD-50 format to hit a home run with no pixellation in sight. Purists of 1080p resolution can add Pirates to their reference quality blu-rays. If you like your picture clean and detailed, with impeccable resolution, mostly clear of film grain, Pirates is for you. Thanks to the cinematography, the color palette is solid and deep. It really shines on this BD.

In comparison to the light, open imagery, the darker scenes are interesting. Watch the deck of the Black Pearl when the crew first appear as skeletons. It still yields outstanding detail, but these scenes give up some richness and depth. A minor complaint, this common factor with video subjected to CGI postproduction work is a small price to pay for the breathtaking special effects.


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Man the subwoofers and let the cannons roar. Disney is to be commended for its attention to the audio quality of Pirates. From the gentle lapping of water to the crystal clear bellowing of commands by actor Geoffrey Rush, the uncompressed 48 kHz/24-bit LPCM bitstream provided an impressive audio palate. The soundstage appeared expansive, with a fantastic mix of both stereophonic depth and surround gimmicks.

Listen to the variety of sounds during the scenes on the open sea or when the pirates storm the island. From a classical score to screams and laughter in the midrange to cannon shots in the midbass to explosions and splintering wood in the treble and the foreboding deep bass rumble, Pirates is a system stretcher that will place demands on even the best home theaters. And if you are not set up to access the uncompressed LPCM, fear not mates. The Dolby Digital 5.1 content will not make you walk the plank. It rivals the sound of the best standard definition DVDs available.
