Skull World

 (2013)

Skull World Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A documentary that follows several years in the life of Greg Sommer, aka Skull Man, as he builds the Canadian chapter of Box Wars, an international underground movement of cardboard-based combat.

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

Starring: Greg Sommer
Narrator: Justin McConnell
Director: Justin McConnell

Skull World Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Note: Skull World is presented on a 25Gb BD-R, as opposed to a commercially pressed BD-ROM. Be sure your player will accept BD-Rs, because some are finicky. My Panasonic unit had no problem with Skull World, but my PS3 stuttered in chapter 2.

As McConnell notes in his commentary, there is a notable difference between the first half of Skull World and the second, simply because most of the first half was shot with standard-definition digital video cameras, while the second half was shot in HD. The up-conversion of the SD material is quite good, but one can only do so much with the limited resolution. Archival material from Sommer's own collection shot on what looks like VHS is, of course, muddy and washed out, but this is part of its charm.

Within the limits of its source material, McConnell's 1080i, AVC-encoded BD-R produces a stable, clear and well-defined image with almost no apparent artifacting and certainly none of the combing associated with a poorly handled 1080i master. Colors vary enormously depending on lighting conditions. While there may have been some effort at color correction, tell-tale signs like the weak blue of the sky during the Australian Box War match suggest that Skull War did not go through the kind of extensive processing that would occur on a digital intermediate. Still, the shots and edits have been matched and "massaged" with sufficient care so that cuts are not jarring and the editing feels professional throughout. Despite an extensive editing process (discussed by McConnell in the commentary), the footage retains a raw, captured-on-the-run feel.


Skull World Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

In yet another sign that its creator understands user-friendliness, Skull World offers three audio options: lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1; Dolby Digital 5.1, for those who can't yet handle lossless DTS (and yes, there are still many such systems); and a DD 2.0 option, presumably for tablets and handhelds, among other options. As with most documentaries, the sound is primarily front-oriented, although the musical score (most of it from Sommer's and McConnell's favorite metal bands) benefits from good stereo separation, and McConnell's narration takes advantage of the discrete multi-channel format to detach itself from the front channel where events are happening and assume a detached position in the soundscape. There's also an occasional but effective use of deep bass during some of the Box Wars conflict scenes, particularly the Australian battle, to help recreate the sensation of overwhelming excitement that the participants describe. If your system supports the lossless 5.1 track, I strongly recommend it.
