The Adventures of Mark Twain

 (1986)

The Adventures of Mark Twain Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Based on elements from the stories of Mark Twain, this feature-length Claymation fantasy follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher and Huck Finn as they stowaway aboard the interplanetary balloon of Mark Twain. Twain, disgusted with the human race, is intent upon finding Halley's Comet and crashing into it, achieving his "destiny." It's up to Tom, Becky, and Huck to convince him that his judgment is wrong and that he still has much to offer humanity that might make a difference. Their efforts aren't just charitable; if they fail, they will share Twain's fate. Along the way, they use a magical time portal to get a detailed overview of the Twain philosophy, observing the "historical" events that inspired his works.

For more about The Adventures of Mark Twain and the The Adventures of Mark Twain Blu-ray release, see the The Adventures of Mark Twain Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Adventures of Mark Twain Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

I will continue on doing my duty, but when I get to the other side, I will use my considerable influence to have the human race drowned again. This time drowned good. No omissions. No ark.

Like the 2011 Eureka Entertainment UK Blu-ray edition before it, the Magnolia release of The Adventures of Mark Twain features an excellent 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation and overhaul, and the results can be quite spectacular. But while both appear to be minted from the same master, Magnolia seems to have made a few different adjustments to that master. (Although it should be noted that those differences are so slight that it's difficult to be entirely sure.) As far as I can tell, there's a bit more ringing in the Magnolia version -- particularly in shots where claymation models are set against bright skies -- as well as additional scratches, white specks and nicks, minor as most instances may be. Just to clarify further, the UK release exhibits the same sort of print damage as the Magnolia edition, but it looks as if Eureka effectively removed several marks and tweaked a handful of rough shots Magnolia has not.

Still, the striking far outweighs the problematic. Colors are soft and pleasant, primaries are lovely, black levels are deep, and contrast is consistent. Detail is even more impressive. A fine veneer of grain lends filmic legitimacy to the image, definition and clarity rarely falter (save the few instances in which softness is present in the original stop-motion photography), and the malleability and texture of the clay is apparent in nearly every frame. Comparisons to its DVD counterpart reveal just how much of an upgrade the film has received. Note the fingerprints in the clay, the nuances in the puppets, the personal touches in each background, and the careful attention to detail that bolsters every hat, raft, crowd, balloon, river and flight of fancy. Edges are crisp, textures are refined and the original animation has been honored just as it should. Moreover, significant artifacting, banding, aliasing and other such eyesores are kept to a bare minimum, which only bolsters the already proficient presentation. Eliminating the speckling, print damage and negligible ringing that creep in is really the only thing that would have improved matters.


The Adventures of Mark Twain Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There's no sadder sight than a young pessimist. Except an old optimist.

Twain's DTS-HD Master Audio and LPCM stereo tracks are excellent all around, two-channel soundscape or no. Voices are warm, clean and perfectly clear, prioritization is dead on, and every last sound effect and Bill Scream music cue sounds about as good as it possibly could. Even elements that would be more potent infused with some additional low-end heft boast a sense of weight and notable oomph (especially when it comes to Twain's airship), making this one of the more absorbing sonic experiences available for a classic claymation release. Yes, a flashier 5.1 remix -- with LFE support and immersive rear speaker activity -- would have certainly been a nice upgrade (or option at the very least), but the power, faithfulness and unexpected fullness of the lossless and uncompressed stereo mixes just might take you by surprise. I was swept up in the magic of it all.
