Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The shorts and their 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfers are uniformly striking, without any serious issues of note. Yes, brief banding and extremely minor aliasing make a few fleeting appearances, but none of it amounts to a distraction. Colors are gorgeous, primaries pop beautifully, black levels are deep and inky, and contrast is vivid and consistent. It only helps that every last detail is present and accounted for, with razor sharp edges, perfectly resolved fine textures, and no noise or macroblocking to be found. And unlike Volume 1, all of the featured Volume 2 shorts are free of inherent anomalies, meaning there aren't any eyesores to overlook or contend with. Pixar fans will be delighted with the video presentation all around.


Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Unfortunately, not every animated short boasts a comparable audio presentation. Six shorts feature a decent but less than ideal 640kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 track, one features a strong 2046kbps DTS-HD High Resolution 7.1 audio, and five feature either a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, Dolby TrueHD 5.1 or Dolby TrueHD 7.1 lossless mix. Will most consumers care? Or even notice for that matter? Probably not. But an expectation adjustment may be in order, especially for Pixar fans trying to decide if they want to purchase a collection of shorts they already have scattered throughout their Blu-ray collection on various Pixar discs. That said, there's no real problem child in the bunch. Dialogue is clear and well-prioritized, effects are bright and playful, and music is nice and full. The lossless and high resolution tracks tend to offer more authoritative LFE output, enveloping rear speaker activity and more impressive dynamics, but the lossy mixes are no slouch. Ultimately, by raw quality or mere principle, Volume 2's audio is a bit of a mixed bag.

The following is a short-by-short breakdown of the disc's available audio tracks:

  • Your Friend the Rat: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Presto: English Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Burn-E: English Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Partly Cloudy: English Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Dug's Special Mission: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
  • George & A.J.: English Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Day & Night: English DTS-HD HR 7.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Hawaiian Vacation: English DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Air Mater: English Dolby TrueHD 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
  • Small Fry: English Dolby TrueHD 7.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
