Take Shelter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Take Shelter's 1080p transfer is everything one would expect of a Sony new release Blu-ray. The image is stunning from beginning to end, yielding remarkable clarity, exceptionally sharp details, and strong colors. Facial and clothing textures are wonderfully crisp in every scene. Definition is first-rate, and the image captures the finest textures on grasses, leaves, wood, the slightly battered metal of the shelter door and cargo container, and even the pebbles and dirt at Curtis' worksite. Colors are dazzling and perfectly balanced. Whether blue denim jeans, bright green grasses, or general odds and ends around the house or in the yard, the transfer handles everything form the most brilliant shades to the dreariest earth tones with equal precision. Skin tone are perfectly balanced, and black levels are deep and true. Grain retention solidifies a natural film-like appearance. The image is, typical of a Sony release, free of any obvious digital tinkering. Only a handful of white pops, most notably evident during a scene where Curtis visits his mother, keeps this transfer from absolute perfection.


Take Shelter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Take Shelter storms onto Blu-ray with a powerful and reference-grade DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Audiences will listen in awe as the Blu-ray practically creates a storm in the listening area in the movie's opening moments. Deep, booming, lingering thunder powerfully envelops the soundstage. It's the kind of true-to-life bass that gets under the skin and rattles one to his or her very core, exactly the sort this movie demands to solidify its thematic and visual elements. Similar heavy sensations may be heard at the drilling worksite or via the rumbling machinery Curtis uses to dig up a hole for the new addition to the storm shelter. Moving away from the bass, rain drenches the soundstage at several points, falling with a natural flair through every speaker for a fantastic experience that all but soaks the listening area, whether falling onto the ground or pounding onto a car windshield. Additional ambience is generally subtle but effective; everything from natural atmospherics to a panting dog and a background television at breakfast create believable environments. Music is delivered with great precision and spacing. Dialogue is smooth, playing evenly from the center channel and never lost to surrounding elements. The track is absolutely defined by that thunder and rain, though; it's believably recreated and simulates real life with uncanny precision. This is a truly marvelous soundtrack that's not to be missed.
