Raise the Titanic Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Raise the Titanic is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is a occasionally problematic looking high definition presentation that nonetheless is one of those middle of the quality scale releases that looks okay if you do a bit of figurative squinting. Colors have faded slightly, giving flesh tones a ruddy pink hue at times. A lot of the film is cast in browns and beiges anyway, which results in a visual experience that is substantially devoid of significant pop. While there has certainly been no egregious digital tweaking like grain removal done here, there are compression artifacts, relatively minor but noticeable nonetheless, that crop up throughout the presentation, especially in the darker sequences. Those darker sequences also have at least a few moments of noticeable crush—pay attention, for instance, when Pitt gives the lowdown on the plan to raise the Titanic to the other men on the yacht. The people standing in the background—including Seagram—who are wearing black jackets almost melt into the shadows, becoming disembodied heads. On the whole though, this is a solid effort from Shout!, which continues to unearth (and/or un-submerge) cult films from yesteryear with largely commendable results.


Raise the Titanic Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Raise the Titanic features both the original stereo mix of the film available via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 as well as a quite well done surround repurposing, offered via DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. The 5.1 track has some nice immersion (no pun intended, considering the setting of the bulk of the film), with good use of panning effects in scenes like helicopters zooming over Seagram's home or, later, when the crew is aboard an aircraft carrier. A couple of sequences with dinghys that have powerful motors attached offer much the same sonic oomph. The underwater sequences sound appropriately cloistered and almost claustrophobic. Dialogue is always presented cleanly. The one aspect of this film that came in for almost universal acclaim was John Barry's score. I will be the heretic once again (as I often am when discussing Maurice Jarre's music) by saying this is not my favorite work of Barry's, but it does sound great in the 5.1 repurposing, where Barry's magisterial strings are nicely splayed over the surround channels.
