The Aristocats Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Update (8/26/13): While I've retained the bulk of my video review below, I have adjusted my video score. I was more impressed with The Aristocats upon initially reviewing it. However, after further examining a loss in detail and clarity (due to noise reduction, which has eliminated grain for the most part and taken a toll in the process), it's quite clear to me now that all is not well. The original film's relative lack of crispness should still be taken into account when determining just how negative an effect the noise reduction has had -- The Aristocats could never, even in its purest state, be mistaken for a modern, sharply defined animated film -- but this certainly isn't among Disney's best or most faithful. I've reduced my video score accordingly.

The Aristocats doesn't look as if it were animated yesterday, but its 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer is impressive. The kittens' bright bows, the watercolor greens and blues of the French countryside, the painterly decadence of Adelaide's mansion, and the vivid flashes of reds, oranges and purples in "Everybody Wants to Be Cat" fare beautifully, without sacrificing the brushed, blanched hues of its forty-two-year old animation and hand-painted backgrounds. The animators' line art is sketchy and scratchy, just as it was intended, and uncleaned pencil marks are present and accounted for. Look closely and you'll see the strokes of the artists' brushes, the mild variations in the color fills, and the imperfections in the original animation cels. There also isn't any serious print damage or blemishes to speak of, at least none that could have been addressed without a more drastic overhaul. There also isn't any artifacting, banding or aliasing either, bumping The Aristocats' high definition presentation up in rank.


The Aristocats Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Everyone is picking up on that feline beat, 'cause everything else is obsolete! Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track sings, strums and slides with jazzy ease, movin' and groovin' like a mix half its age. Voices are surprisingly clean and clear, with only the tiniest bit of hiss from the original audio elements, and sound effects are bright and lively. It's the music, though, that steals the show. The boom boom boom of foot-stomping bass runs, the dizzying prance of piano keys, the trip dap dee dop dow of a bristling snare, and the rising, climbing cat call of a trumpet sound fantastic and make each song a showstopper unto itself. Even the Sherman brothers' Parisian score is delicate and disarming enough to keep the lossless track singing, all with perfectly prioritized, smartly spread precision. Not too shabby for a forty-two-year old animated feature.
