The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Adventures of Priscilla receives a strong high definition upgrade from MGM, who have given the film a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's sharp, filmic, and—as you can imagine—exceptionally colorful. Aside from a few scattered white specks, the print is in fabulous condition, and the image is entirely natural, with a rich grain structure and no signs of digital noise reduction or edge enhancement. The picture is quite crisp on its own, as you'll notice in the textures of Terrence Stamp's make-up covered face, the close-ups of scaly, slithering outback fauna, and the wonderfully detailed sequins and chiffons of the three queens' elaborate costumes. Some split-diopter shots and wider angles take on a softer look, but this is completely source related. As you'd expect, there's a surplus of bright, flashy color in the film—every hue imaginable makes an appearance during the cabaret sequences— and this transfer handles it well, with no splotchiness, bleed, or oversaturation. Black levels are deep too, and contrast tight, which gives the image plenty of pop and depth. Lastly, placed on a 50 GB disc, there are no visible compression-related anomalies. I don't think fans could've asked for better.


The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

You haven't lived until you've heard Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" accompanied by a didgeridoo, and The Adventures of Priscilla's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track grants you that unusual opportunity. This mix is defined by its camp pop music pedigree, from Charlene's "I've Never Been to Me" and Peaches & Herb's "Shake Your Groove Thing" to ABBA's "Mamma Mia." The music sounds excellent—big and potent and dynamically active—and the songs frequently take up space in the rear channels as well, giving the track some punchy immersion. Elsewhere, the surround speakers are mostly used for occasional pan effects, like a helicopter swooshing from left to right, and an adequate amount of quiet ambience, like thunder, barroom noise, etc. Dialogue seems a bit low in the mix—and it certainly doesn't help that the Aussie accents are quite thick at times—but there's never a moment when the voices become muffled or unintelligible. If you ever want or need them, English SDH and other subtitles are available in easy-to- read white lettering.
