Syrup

 (2012)

Syrup Blu-ray delivers great video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Based on the novel by Max Barry, a young marketing graduate hatches a million-dollar idea. But, in order to see it through, he has to learn to trust his attractive corporate counterpart.

For more about Syrup and the Syrup Blu-ray release, see Syrup Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Syrup Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The cinematographer on Syrup was Julio Macat, whose proficiency with comedies extends from Home Alone to Ace Ventura: Pet Detective to Horrible Bosses (and its sequel, which is currently in production). No information on the shooting format was available, but the photography was either digital or was so thoroughly processed on a digital intermediate that it might as well have been. The effects work necessary to make the camera appear to be traveling through spaces where a physical rig could not possibly pass could only have been accomplished in the digital realm, so that the film's final form was almost certainly a 2K DI, from which Magnolia's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray was sourced.

In keeping with its advertising milieu, not one frame of Syrup looks natural. Everything and everyone looks like they were photographed for a magazine, with unnatural colors, heightened contrast and an airbrushed appearance. Within that general frame of reference, the image is sharp and clear, with no obvious noise or interference, which is something of an accomplishment with so many oversaturated colors on display. The cool end of the spectrum (the blues, whites and grays) dominates the world inhabited by Scat and Six, because it's a cold-hearted place, where emotions have been reduced to a neurological response to be stimulated for sales. For contrast, a few locations (e.g., the apartment shared by Scat and Sneaky Pete) have warmer tones, but all the surfaces are hard.

Shadow detail sometimes appears to be washed out from high contrast, and some of the blacks tend toward gray from excess brightness, but these appear to be a deliberate part of the visual design. In an unusual decision for Magnolia, the film has been placed on a BD-25, but that decision fits with the generally cut-rate treatment accorded this film, which the studio has obviously written off. The average bitrate of 22.99 Mbps is well within the range that major studios use without encountering significant problems, and no compression artifacts were in evidence.


Syrup Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The sound design of Syrup's 5.1 soundtrack, presented in lossless DTS-HD MA, is more expressive than naturalistic. In addition to the voiceover narration, the track has numerous rushing, zooming and pausing effects, as the camera races around illustrating what the narrator is describing. More ordinary scenes have environmental ambiance, but it is never too pronounced, because the scene may suddenly transform into a marketing lesson, with a character turning to address the camera. The dialogue is clear and front-oriented, and the bass extension is often impressive for certain key moments that I can't specify without spoilers. The score blends effectively with the overheated visual style, which is a credit to composers Peter Bateman and Andrew Holtzman.
