Robots

 (2005)

Robots Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

In a wondrously clanky universe populated solely by mechanical beings live memorable robots Rodney Copperbottom, a young genius inventor who dreams of helping robots everywhere; Cappy, a beautiful, dynamic and savvy bot with whom Rodney is instantly smitten; the nefarious corporate tyrant Ratchet who locks horns with Rodney; Bigweld, a master inventor who has lost his way; and a group of misfit a-bots known as the Rusties, led by Fender and Piper Pinwheeler. Fenderas head, arms, and legs routinely fall off at the most inopportune moments. As Rodney fulfills Fenderas ongoing need for repairs, the two become fast friends. Piper is Fenderas tomboy kid sister, who surprises everyone with her determination and strength.

For more about Robots and the Robots Blu-ray release, see Robots Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Robots Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Pixar has set the bar incredibly high for CGI animated films, not just for story and originality, but also for the quality of their high definition Blu-ray encodes. Robots reaches for that level of visual excellence, but can't quite grasp it. Don't get me wrong; in most regards, this is still a blazingly beautiful transfer from 20th Century Fox. CGI has improved dramatically over the past six years—especially when it comes to particle effects like smoke and fire— but Robots really doesn't look dated. The character designs—perhaps the movie's strongest feature—are rendered with exceptional clarity, providing a vast upgrade from the standard definition DVD. (And an even greater leap from the film's VHS release; Robots was the last animated Fox feature to shuffle out to stores in cassette form.) Of course, the film is also insanely colorful. The corporate drones may all be covered in slick metallic grays, but our rag-tag group of robot individualists sports bold primary and secondary hues, and the environments are vividly shaded. Black levels are deep, contrast is tight, and the film has a truly three-dimensional sense of presence. So, where does this encode falter? In a word: artifacts. There are only traces of banding in occasional fine color gradients—rarely, if ever, noticeable—but you will spot frequent aliasing in thin lines, especially in the features of the characters' faces. This might not be apparent if you have a small screen or if you sit far away, but it's readily visible up close and on larger monitors. Thankfully, other encode issues—noisiness, for instance—are of no concern.


Robots Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The back of the Blu-ray case advertises a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix, but my firmware-up-to-date PS3 only detected a lossy DTS 5.1 mix. That is, minus the "HD Master Audio." (The audio tab in the top menu also only says "English 5.1 DTS.") 20th Century Fox is normally great about including lossless audio tracks on all of their releases—even the lower profile ones—so I'm not sure why Robots, undoubtedly a huge seller, is an exception. Perhaps the rationale is that kids—the target audience—simply won't know the difference. Regardless, this is still a fairly strong track, especially when it comes to directionality. The rear channels are used frequently, not just for ambience—the immersive sounds of an all-robot marching band, the clamor in the robot equivalent of Grand Central Station—but also for whiplash cross-channel effects, circling the space behind your head. Dynamically, however, the mix does seem somewhat squashed, taking up a cluttered residence in the middle range. High-end sounds aren't quite as crisp as they could be, and low end is lacking. Likewise, dialogue just doesn't stand out as cleanly as it probably would with a lossless track. My final assessment? Kids might not know the difference, but their hardcore audiophile parents probably will.

Do note that along with the standard "American" English audio track, there are also "Australian" English and "U.K." English dubs in DTS 5.1.
