Pleasantville

 (1998)

Pleasantville Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Pleasantville is a 1950s sitcom enjoying cult status on a contemporary cable channel. David loves it, but his sister Jennifer is too hip. When a mysterious TV repairman gives them a new remote control, the pair are transported into the world of Pleasantville like it or not. They find themselves trapped in an alternate reality where the town exists in black and white--in a white bread world without passion or violence. But the teenagers have also brought an unexpected--and double-edged--gift to Pleasantville: a sense of possibility that spreads like wildfire throughout the town. There can be no turning back once the citizens begin experiencing such strange wonders as sex, art, rain... and ideas.

For more about Pleasantville and the Pleasantville Blu-ray release, see Pleasantville Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Pleasantville Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Pleasantville, once brimming with stirring cutting-edge splendor, is rapidly approaching its thirteenth birthday... and it shows. Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer isn't an outright disappointment, nor is it undone by overzealous edge enhancement or noise reduction. It's simply a fairly faithful but slightly dated presentation that doesn't live up to the standards set by the studio's more essential catalog releases. As far as specific issues are concerned, Pleasantville isn't affected by many -- an uneven grain distracts from time to time, artifacting rears its ugly head here and there, black levels are occasionally muted, and primaries don't pack quite as much visual punch as they do thematic resonance -- but even those it does struggle with aren't deal-breakers by any means. John Lindley's cinematography is as lovely as ever; warm hues, rosy skintones and many a savory shadow allow his color palette to bloom. Midrange grays look wonderful, whites are bright and clean, and contrast is strong and able-bodied throughout. Fine detail isn't what I'd call crisp, but neither is Lindley's original photography. Textures are well-resolved on the whole, object definition is pleasing and the softness that appears is inherent to the film's source. Moreover, banding, aliasing, crush, smearing and other digital oddities aren't a factor.

Pleasantville could benefit from a fresh remaster and a more thorough overhaul, that much is sure. How much it would benefit is more difficult to assess. As it stands, the Blu-ray transfer looks far better than its DVD counterpart and will draw more praise than criticism.


Pleasantville Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't going to send chills down anyone's spine, but it is more than adequate, particularly as lossless catalog mixes go. Dialogue has a nice buoyancy to it, voices are clear and sound effects are nimble and convincing. Rear speaker activity leaves something to be desired, lending support to Randy Newman's score above all else, but the resulting soundfield still provides a mildly engaging experience. Directionality is decent, interior acoustics are believable, cross-channel pans are smooth and ambience is reserved but reliable. LFE output is merely serviceable as well, embracing a few select scenes without drawing too much attention to itself. Don't get me wrong: the track isn't mediocre in any sense of the word, it's just a polished and proficient presentation of a largely front-heavy sound mix.
