The Amazing Spider-Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sony's commitment to releasing the finest Blu-ray products is evident with every spin of a Sony-branded disc. The consistency of product -- from the latest blockbusters to the most cherished classic titles from years gone by -- is arguably tops in the entire industry, and why shouldn't it be; Sony was a lead Blu-ray design and advocacy outfit, its PlayStation 3 console offered disc playback and instant wide format adoption, and the first wave of titles released back in 2006 bore the Sony label on the spine. Since then, and through a few growing pains and spurts -- a bloody format war, a misstep or two, the transition from Dolby TrueHD to DTS-HD Master Audio -- the studio has emerged as the most trustworthy in the industry when it comes to its Blu-ray product. When it says Sony, chances are extremely high that the movie is going to look (and sound) about as good as the format allows. Now, Sony is recalling the days of its "Superbit" DVD releases with the emergence of "Mastered in 4K" (*) Blu-ray discs. The initial wave consists of a handful of films, all of which have enjoyed previous, and largely very high quality, Blu-ray transfers. The new transfers are sourced from 4K masters but here's where the giant asterisk comes in: they're then downscaled to standard Blu-ray 1080p resolution. That means buyers can enjoy them on their regular old Blu-ray players and their regular old HDTVs -- no fancy new hardware required. The downside is that viewers aren't really seeing the material in 4K; even those who shell out the large sum of cash for a new 4K TV will be treated only to an upscaled presentation, much the same way today's regular old TV/playback 1080p device combos upscale standard definition DVDs.

Watching the "Mastered in 4K" transfer in 1080p does yield some benefits over the standard 1080p Blu-ray releases, even if it's not a true 4K experience. The discs take advantage of a significantly higher bitrate than regular old Blu-ray discs, meaning more muscle to produce the finest picture quality, revealing superior details and showcasing that perfect cinematic, pleasing grain texturing for pictures photographed on film and more accuracy for those photographed in the wholly digital realm. "Mastered in 4K" discs also promise superior color balance and accuracy, reproducing a more faithful-to-the-source palette that will reveal the sort of natural shading and subtle nuance even the best of 1080p Blu-ray cannot match. More, Sony promises enhanced viewing on its own line of 4K TVs thanks to a proprietary upscaling algorithm that's designed to squeeze the most out of the "Mastered in 4K" line of Sony discs, above and beyond what any competitor's display can offer. Makes sense considering some branch of Sony is at work along every step of the process. Unfortunately, one of Sony's shiny new 4K televisions was not available for review purposes, but suffice it to say that either of the launch displays -- the 55" and 65" XBR-labeled sets -- will undoubtedly offer the best consumer viewing picture to date, whether joined with a Sony "Mastered in 4K" disc or a regular old Blu-ray from any studio.

Here's a rather unique challenge for the processing power of "Mastered in 4K" discs. The Amazing Spider-Man was released to Blu-ray not all that long ago -- give or take around seven months at time of publication -- to rave reviews for its digital picture quality. It's a rather dark film but it sure looks fantastic for digital, yielding remarkable details both real and computer generated after the fact, from basic skin to digital hides, from regular clothes to Spider-Man's complexly textured costume. Sony's "Mastered in 4K" release takes the home video picture quality to another level, albeit a level that's not that much higher than the original release. In essence, most all of the observations from the standard 2D release carry over here. Details remain fantastic, colors brilliant in context of the film's darker tone, black levels amazing, and so on and so forth. The "Mastered in 4K" release, however, clearly ups the sharpness a bit. It's not so much sharper as to really make it worth the upgrade, but it's rather easy to see the uptick, both in-motion on the monitor and when comparing screen grabs, both at casual distance and up-close-and-personal. On the other hand, colors don't seem quite so noticeably bolder or richer, but again that's comparing them on the same non-Ultra 4K 1080p monitor; chances are Sony's television will squeeze out a little more nuanced precision and range from the palette. Black levels remain great, too, and of course the "4K" presentation is absolutely clean with no obvious banding, blockiness, or other uglies. It's a surprise to see it a fair bit sharper than the original, but even considering the improvement it'll difficult to lay down the cash for this release without also plopping down the Benjamins for one of Sony's new TVs, too.

All screenshots have been sourced from the "Mastered in 4K" Blu-ray disc and have been selected to approximate those found in the review of the old 2D release.


The Amazing Spider-Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Amazing Spider-Man's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, the same, it seems, as accompanied the previous release, is every bit the sort of thrilling Superhero movie sound experience listeners demand. The track places precision elements all over the stage, creating a seamless and real-world sound environment with perfect clarity. From small effects like a swinging, squeaky door to drenching rains and booming thunder, the track offers every element with the sort of natural reproduction reserved for the best of the best high definition tracks. More impressive is the seamless sense of space; Sony's soundtrack paints a vivid sonic picture of every environment, completely immersing listeners into the school hallway, the Oscorp labs, and the busy city streets. Directional effects move seamlessly from one channel to the next, and precision sound placement anywhere in the stage is amongst this track's specialties. Music plays with a faultless tone, reproducing James Horner's high quality score with the sort of lifelike realism that defines lossless audio at its best. Action scenes are powerful and incorporate the best elements described above. Sound swooshes about the listening area and does so seamlessly. Various action effects are aggressive and clear, precisely placed and naturally immersive. Bass is potent and hits hard but not so hard as to distract. Instead, the low end is a completing element that brings real life and heft to the proceedings. Dialogue is firm and absolutely clear, remaining focused in the middle except as dictated by environment. This is a stellar soundtrack. That should come as no surprise given all the factors -- big blockbuster new release, Sony title -- but it's still a pleasure to hear from start to finish.
