The Best Man Holiday Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Director Lee's commentary makes it clear that he left the look of The Best Man Holiday in the capable hands of cinematographer Greg Gardiner (Men in Black II), except for his stipulation that it must be in "anamorphic" (i.e., 2.39:1) aspect ratio, as compared to the first film's 1.85:1. According to IMDb, the film was shot on the Arri Alexa, but even if that is incorrect, the final result after post-production on a digital intermediate has produced a splendid Blu-ray image.

Sharpness, clarity and detail are exemplary throughout, and because so much of the action takes place inside a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous-type mansion that has been decked out for the holidays, there is plenty to see. Costumes, skin textures and decor are all finely visible, including the adorable outfits of the precious moppets cast to play the four Sullivan children, the Murch twins and Shelby's precocious daughter. The stadium sequences for Lance Sullivan's big game reflect a similar level of precise detail, as do various scenes preceding the gathering at the Sullivans', where we see Jordan at work and Harper meeting with his publisher (John Michael Higgins). Black levels and contrast are perfectly set, and the color palette favors bright, holiday-themed hues that pop off the screen.

The average bitrate of 31.99 Mbps seems to be Universal's "sweet spot" for compression, and it's certainly up to any challenges.


The Best Man Holiday Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As in Best 1, music and dialogue are the focus of the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track, although a few scenes have somewhat more elaborate effects, including the Shelby/Candace cat fight and a mock slugfest between Julian and Q in the backseat of an SUV. The film spawned a successful album composed of a mix of new songs and covers of traditional Christmas songs, and the film's soundtrack has even more, including Ray Charles's cover of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" and Nat King Cole's classic rendition of "The Christmas Song" by Mel Tormé and Robert Wells. As a nod to Best 1, Stevie Wonder's "As" is reprised as a duet performed by Marsha Ambrosius and Anthony Hamilton. All of these songs play with a warm, rich tonality and wide dynamic range, as does the underscoring by Stanley Clarke.
