Sparkle Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sparkle's 1080p high definition transfer sparkles, of course. Sony's latest doesn't disappoint, replicating the picture's digital source photography with ease. Whether in hazy night clubs, colorful interiors, or bright exteriors, the transfer delivers superb clarity and demonstrates commendable stability. The image is a bit silky-smooth as digital shoots tend to sometimes be, but that doesn't lessen the handsome, sharp, and consistent details that help make this transfer a winner. The image yields the sort of dependable, natural textures viewers expect, whether complex facial and clothing lines or general background details that solidify the front-and-center elements and help recreate an authentic viewing canvas. Colors are excellent, presented with natural balance and accuracy, again whether in darkened interiors or well-lit locales, indoors and outdoors alike. Period hues shine; the palette is varied, rich, and astonishingly reproduced. Black levels are as expected, deep and accurate whether dark clothes or shadowy corners. Flesh tones are true across the many shades seen throughout the film. This is a top-notch transfer all around, hindered by a little bit of banding in a few spots but otherwise a handsome, consistently striking presentation that should satisfy all viewers.


Sparkle Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sparkle's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack is everything a sound presentation accompanying a movie of this style should be. The track provides a consistently wonderful presence, from the opening musical acts forward. Listeners will enjoys superb vocal clarity, faultless musical accompaniment, quality bass, natural spacing, and just the right surround support. The track's musical reproduction practically places listeners in the audience, and even crowd ambience is delivered without fault; it's a very impressive, full-fledged, theatre-big surround experience. Lighter music elements inside the church, such as organ notes, play with equally impressive flavor. Light exterior ambience helps shape quieter scenes, while dialogue remains true to life, centered up front and clear as can be. This is a vastly impressive track that dazzles across every musical number and plays with a seamless natural flair elsewhere. In short, it's another A-list soundtrack from Sony.
