Red Riding Trilogy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

For whatever reason, but presumably to save money on packaging, MPI and IFC have decided to put all three films—all 308 minutes—onto a single BD-50. I know, I know; I was wary as well. Fortunately, the 1080p/AVC-encoded transfers aren't as riddled with compression problems as you might think. Each film presents a very different visual experience. 1974 was shot on 16mm and it shows; the 1.85:1-framed image has a grainy, gritty, sometimes hazy quality that's certainly intentional but isn't exactly objectively eye pleasing. Because 16mm is essentially half of the resolution of 35mm, clarity is definitely on the soft side. Fine detail is apparent in close-ups, but much of the film has a soft, slightly undefined look. Color is appropriately dingy, with lots of grimy neutrals and yellowish highlights, but black levels are a murky gray—especially in darker scenes, where both grain and noise spike. Filmed on 35mm, 1980 is a vast improvement. The 2.35:1 image is sharper, tighter, and cleaner than its predecessor, with a finer grain structure and better-resolved textures. Color is also more saturated and black levels deeper, resulting in strong contrast. Finally, 1983 was shot using the RED One high definition video camera, which provides the sharpest, most vivid picture of the trilogy. It's also the most stylized, with creamy, faux-vintage tones, stark contrast, and lens flares that send shafts of light shooting horizontally across the frame. I'm sure each film could've looked moderately better if they were all relegated to separate discs, but I have few real complaints about the picture quality. My biggest worry was compression, but aside from some occasional noise and a few instances of very mild banding—that you have to go out of your way to look for—there are no distractions here. Don't let the presence of three films on one disc sway you from a purchase.


Red Riding Trilogy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

While the picture quality is better than I had anticipated, the trilogy's audio is a slight disappointment, mostly because there are no lossless options here. Each film has been given a mere Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track. With no high definition source material to compare them to, I can't say what we're losing in these lossy mixes, but there were definitely a few instances when I felt the tracks could be cleaner and more dynamically vibrant. The sound design, in general, is very front-centric and restrained, revealing the trilogy's origins as a made-for-TV miniseries. The rear channels have little to do. Cross-channel movements are rare—you'll get the occasional car moving from side to side or front to back—and directionality is seldom used to pinpoint the exact location of sounds. At best, we get some convincing ambience—police station chatter, falling rain, construction noises, wind—and eerie music bled effectively into the surround speakers. Dialogue is nicely balanced in the mix, but it would probably sound crisper and cleaner in a lossless track. I ended up turning the subtitles on, but this was mostly to help in catching the intricacies of the northern English slang.
