The Aviator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Visually, Scorsese's work is a treat to watch on any format, but the Blu-ray release of The Aviator proves to be magical. Trademark imagery of the director--such as the flashing of antique camera bulbs--is rendered with stunning detail in 1080p. The popping bulbs symbolize the pressure of public scrutiny and the ever-present eye of the media, but Scorsese shows these camera accessories as living, breathing creatures. An even greater visual palatte is served up in Scorsese's shots of the screening room scenes, showing his own beloved medium, film, with careful artistry. Old film reels, cameras and Hollywood parties come to life in Scorsese's rich vision. And of course, the superbly choreographed flight scenes are mesmerizing.

The only criticism of the picture is the stylized coloration. Scorcese opts for a slightly washed-out look that removes some of the vibrancy from reds and greens. The style does not detract from the cinematography, and it gives The Aviator a slightly dated look without removing color altogether. Color film was not an option for Hughes nearly 80 years ago, and Scorsese wanted to pay homage to the black and white era. At times, the Blu-ray shows vivid reds, blues and greens but often the color scheme is more subdued. The washed out look in some scenes is a small complaint, and overall the visuals in 1080p make the film worth watching--especially the flight scenes.



The Aviator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

While not resolved as gorgeously as the video, the audio is also quite good. Voices and music are rendered convincingly. Unfortunately, Warner includes no PCM track and the soundstaging and imaging is not as impressive as many other Blu-ray releases. Still, the DD 5.1 track is sufficient. Blanchett's voice has the immediately recognizable, lilting qualities of Katharine Hepburn's delivery, while DiCaprio's voice communicates a hesitancy and lack of authority that nearly undermine his portrayal of Hughes. With Warner continuing to release its films on Blu-ray and HD DVD, chances are not good that the studio will decide to deliver lossless PCM content anytime soon. One can only hope Warner goes Blu-ray exclusive and decides to take advantage of the higher capacity BD and produce PCM tracks for their Blu-ray releases.
