Spider-Man: The High Definition Trilogy

 (2002-2007)

Spider-Man: The High Definition Trilogy Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this absolutely must-own Blu-ray release

See individual titles for their synopses.

Orphaned at an early age, Peter Parker lives in Queens, New York with his beloved Aunt May and Uncle Ben. Peter leads the life of a normal student, working as a photographer at the school paper, pining after the beautiful Mary Jane Watson and hanging out with buddy Harry Osborn. On a school trip, during which Peter and his classmates are given a science demonstration on arachnids, Peter is bitten by a genetically-altered spider. Soon after, he discovers that he has unusual powers: he is endowed with the strength and agility of a spider along with a keen, ESP-like "spider-sense." He vows to dedicate his life to fighting crime, taking to heart the words of his beloved Uncle Ben: "With great power comes great responsibility."

Spider-Man: The High Definition Trilogy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The first film is presented in 1.85:1 aspect ratio while the subsequent two are framed in 2.40:1. Action movies rely heavily on dynamic video, and the 1080p presentation of the Spider-man trilogy is essential to view the special effects, stylized colors and costumes. DVD simply cannot do justice to these films. The level of detail and depth on Blu-ray is extraordinary, with tremendous definition in the cityscapes and sets. Even microdetail in skin and clothing is extraordinary. For example, in the scene in the laboratory where Parker is bitten by the spider, Mary Jane's mottled green sweater shows remarkable definition in the weave and the color variation of the fabric. But everywhere in the picture, the detail is apparent.


Watch the way Parker swings through Manhattan like a modern day Tarzan. Every pixel is rendered convincingly to show the detail, speed and power that bursts from the screen during these action sequences. The camera follows Parker closely as buildings, traffic and streets far below sail past with lightning speed. Every bit of the 1080p resolution is required to convincingly pull off this effect. And what a stunning effect it is. I can think of few other scenes on Blu-ray disc to show off the quality of the format as effectively. Usually, CGI-stylized scenes are lacking in depth and other cues of visual realism, but not here.

Scenes with less motion are equally detailed, but the small grain is highly visible, especially in light areas. This was a welcome sight for me. I was afraid some type of digital noise reduction would be used to wipe the video clean. That approach would remove the grain, but also take away some life from the picture. Not so. The video is dynamic, with such definition that facial expressions yield tremendous detail. Watch the scene where Willem Dafoe has the conversation with himself in the mirror. His expressions are priceless, and the 1080p allows us to see the full range of Dafoe's emotions during his transition into the Green Goblin.


Spider-Man: The High Definition Trilogy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Initially, Sony was including PCM on their newer releases but has since stopped doing that. Yes, I know that Dolby TrueHD is "theoretically" the same as lossless PCM. But in my experience with audio, theory and reality are not best friends. The Spidey PCM tracks are significantly better than most TrueHD tracks I have heard. The soundstage is strong and cohesive with instrumentation, voices and sound effects rendered gorgeously and with heart-stopping dynamics that can go from a whisper to a tremendous crescendo that rocks the floorboards and windows. The spotlighting on certain strings in the orchestral arrangements sounds solid and sweet in the midrange, especially in the more dramatic scenes where the music really is layed on thick. The surround channels and subwoofer are used to very dramatic effect.


Perhaps the greatest feature of the audio is the soundstaging of the 5.1 mix. All sounds have very precise imaging and provide a convincing illusion of the action taking place all around. Within this soundstage, individual voices and sound effects have good tonal characteristics. The original engineering--microphone placement and recording of both voices and other sounds--goes beyond the quality of most films. Voices have a distinct charm and resonance to them. Listen to the timbre of Ben Parker's voice. It exudes a warmth and richness that helps define his character and makes his words more authorative.

Sam Raimi uses the score very effectively--from sweeping choral and orchestral passages to "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" performed by B. J. Thomas (in Spider-man 2) to the aforementioned James Brown track (in Spider-man 3) that features one of the beafiest horn arrangements ever recorded. Throughout the trilogy, the audio, as much as the actors, sets the mood and complements the drama of each scene. Bottom line: the audio is warm, dynamic and open. Best of all, it images with pinpoint accuracy.
