The Big Lebowski Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

I frankly never saw the HD-DVD release of The Big Lebowski, but I have to wonder whether this is the same transfer, due to the VC-1 encode (in 1080p and 1.85:1). The film is not overly pretty, despite having been lensed by the magnificent cinematographer Roger Deakins (Kundun). Colors are bright, just this side of lurid a lot of the time (especially within the confines of the bowling alley), but are lifelike and suitably robust. Sharpness is certainly much better than the DVD, though there is attendant edge enhancement and some minor artifacting issues, including transitory aliasing, as well as some fairly noticeable crush in the nighttime scenes and Universal's typical DNR. Fine detail is quite good a lot of the time, again especially in the brightly lit bowling alley sequences, where everything from Turturro's plush velour purple jumpsuit to the shiny ambience of the bowling balls themselves are delivered with clarity and precision. Some of the film still looks relatively soft, as it always has, but on the whole fans of The Big Lebowski shouldn't have too much to complain about with this new Blu-ray.


The Big Lebowski Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There's no denying the nice, if subtle, sonic upgrade afforded to The Big Lebowski, courtesy of a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. While this is obviously a dialogue driven film, there's quite a bit of attention paid to its overall sound design, and the film features several wonderful moments of immersion as well as a slew of great (and sometimes rather funny) sound effects (listen for example to the kind of champagne cork-popping sound the bowling balls make as they exit the return mechanism). The film is filled to the brim with source cues, all of which sound excellent, and several of the more bombastic sequences benefit from this new lossless track. Especially impressive are quick but effective moments like the "handoff" sequence where The Dude and Walter are supposedly going to give the kidnappers their ransom (or are they?), leading to a car crash and then the roar of three motorcycles zooming off into the distance. LFE is wonderfully robust in this sequence and the panning effect is also very well handled. Fidelity is great throughout the track, and dynamic range is also very good.
