Red Dwarf: Back to Earth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Red Dwarf: Back to Earth features a decent 1080i/VC-1 transfer that, relatively minor shortcomings aside, looks pretty good. Colors are vivid, contrast is strong, and detail sharper is than I expected. Fine textures aren't nearly as crisp as they are on other BBC television releases, but it isn't a distraction. Likewise, black levels occasionally fall short but, for the most part, remain fairly deep throughout. And while skintones bobble between pasty and chalky, rarely warming to the film's various locales, they're stable and consistent from scene to scene. If I have any serious complaint, it's that artifacting and banding sometimes interfere with the image. Neither one becomes a debilitating issue, but they frequently draw attention away from the transfer's merits. Thankfully, other digital anomalies, source noise, and edge enhancement are nowhere to be found. It amounts to an above average presentation sure to surprise viewers like myself who approach the film expecting much worse.


Red Dwarf: Back to Earth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Red Dwarf: Back to Earth includes a DTS-HD High Resolution 5.1 surround track (not to be confused with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mix) that isn't strong enough to match the vigor of the cast's performances. Dialogue is spotty -- sometimes clean and clear, sometimes thin and pinched -- but prioritization is passable and the track's dynamics are eager to please. Similarly, LFE support is a tad clumsy and oafish at times, but generally injects enough weight into the proceedings to showcase its high definition audio wares. Sadly, rear speaker activity is largely non-existent (save a few action-oriented sequences that take advantage of the full soundfield), pans are slightly stocky, and directionality leaves too much to the imagination. Though I suspect most of the track's inadequacies trace back to the film's limited sound design, it doesn't change the fact that Back to Earth's DTS-HD HR mix provides a somewhat underwhelming experience; one that, after volume matching, sounds too much like its DVD counterpart to earn a higher score.
