Precious

 (2009)

Precious Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Set in Harlem in 1987, it is the story of Claireece "Precious" Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), a sixteen-year-old African-American girl born into a life no one would want. She's pregnant for the second time by her absent father; at home, she must wait hand and foot on her mother (Mo'Nique), a poisonously angry woman who abuses her emotionally and physically. School is a place of chaos, and Precious has reached the ninth grade with good marks and an awful secret: she can neither read nor write.

For more about Precious and the Precious Blu-ray release, see Precious Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Gabourey Sidibe, Mo'Nique, Paula Patton, Mariah Carey, Sherri Shepherd, Lenny Kravitz
Director: Lee Daniels

Precious Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Precious sports a naturally lit verite look which may rub some videophiles the wrong way. Its AVC encoded 1080p 1.85:1 image can be crisp and sharp in brightly lit scenes, as in several outdoor moments, or the fluorescent office environment of Ms. Weiss. However, in the drab and dingy confines of Precious' apartment or her high school, darkness is hampered by low contrast to the point where, as politically incorrect as it may be to say this, the dark tones of Sidibe's face simply melt into nothingness. You'll notice this especially in the opening hallway scene in Precious' high school, where Sidibe's face is completely inchoate, as if it had been replaced by a large black dot. That same problem crops up to a lesser extent in the apartment scenes, several of which are shown in screencaptures here. Overall, though, Precious' Blu-ray debut brilliantly captures the literally down and dirty ambience of the original theatrical presentation, with good, if often muted, colors and some excellent detail, especially in the manifold closeups of Sidibe's expressive face. There are some very brief moments of shimmer on such usual suspects as brickwork and some tree leaves, but these are transitory and not very distracting. Grain is perhaps a bit more noticeable due to the low lighting levels and less than robust contrast, but it looks completely natural and is nonintrusive.


Precious Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Aside from the fun fantasy sequences, when some great soul music fills the surround channels like the dreams of a better life which fill Precious' mind, there's not a lot of utilization of channel effects to really exploit a DTS HD-MA 5.1 environment. We do get some ambient city noises in the outdoor scenes, and dialogue is always well positioned directionally in the soundfield, but this is for the most part a small, dialogue driven film without a lot of aural hoopla or bombast. Fidelity is excellent throughout Precious, with Sidibe's frequent narrative voiceover front and center. This is a solid piece of subtle sound mixing, one that certainly won't knock many socks off, but which recreates the claustrophobic environment in which Precious finds herself quite admirably.
