Stranger Than Fiction

 (2006)

Stranger Than Fiction Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Karen Effiel is an author writing her latest novel about an isolated man named Harold Crick. What she doesn't know is that her fictionalized character is real. The real Harold Crick is an IRS agent who has lived a dull existence and one day begins to hear Karen's voice as she narrates what she puts on paper to what Harold has and is doing. Because of this Harold insists the help of a literary professor to find out what is happening and ends up changing things about his life including beginning a relationship with his IRS client, a government-hating bakery owner named Ana Pascal. Harold, however, finds trouble when he hears that Karen plans to kill him.

Stranger Than Fiction Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Stranger than Fiction is presented in a high quality Mpeg-2 transfer that again shows that there is plenty of life left in this unfairly derided compression codec. As one would expect, Stranger than Fiction has been presented in 1080p on this Blu-ray release and features the same encode that was used by Sony for their previous Blu-ray release of the film. I guess if the transfer worked well the first time around, there wasn't really any reason to fiddle with it for this second release.

What strikes me about this particular transfer is how perfectly clean and sharp it is. There are many shots throughout the film where graphs and charts are flashed on screen to illustrate Harold's inner thoughts. These graphics just about leap off the screen and even the finest print is always completely legible. Colors are also nicely handled with a lot of rich, smoothly rendered pastel shades. Pay particular attention to Harold's apartment - - there is a ton of color and fine detail in this particular set and this Blu-ray encode finds the perfect balance between detail and filmic textures. As was the case with the first release of Stranger than Fiction, there are no distracting artifacts present on this release. Ultimately, this is a well-rendered transfer without any noticeable flaws.


Stranger Than Fiction Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Other than the slightly different selection of special features available on this re-release of Stranger than Fiction, the only other change to this version is that the film's audio has been re-encoded from 5.1 PCM to Dolby TrueHD. I honestly can't tell a bit of difference between the two tracks.

Stranger than Fiction is pretty run of the mill when it comes to sound design. Not that it needs heavy surround effects or explosive subwoofer action. The TrueHD soundtrack performs exactly as it should with clear dialogue, music placed perfectly within the mix and a light touch of directional sound when appropriate. While the picture will probably wow your friends with its clarity and detail, the sound is much more subtle. In the end, this is a nice soundtrack, but not something you'll be likely to use as demo material.
