The Color Purple Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray release of The Color Purple stands its ground with a fit and faithful 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer; a filmic presentation that, barring a few minor missteps, clings to its convictions. Allen Daviau's photography -- whether capturing the breadth of a sweltering southern vista, the confines of a sweaty shack or the shaded serenity of a country church -- is warm, savory and beautifully saturated, lavish reds and potent purples are given ample opportunity to shine, and night skies and shadows are deep and satisfying throughout. (Crush takes its toll from time to time, particularly during scenes lit by candles or lanterns, but it's rarely a distraction.) Detail is also impressive, often in spite of the softness that permeates the film. Not every scene is razor-sharp, but many a tight and midrange closeup boasts crisp edges and wonderfully resolved fine textures. Hair, stubble, pores, fabric and the grit-n-grime of the era are intact, and a faint veneer of film grain lends the presentation even further legitimacy. Yes, eagle-eyed videophiles will notice some terribly negligible noise, compression artifacts and print blemishes, but none of it warrants any serious concern. For the most part, the encode is clean and proficient, and Warner's catalog transfer is sound.


The Color Purple Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track fares just as well, staying true to the film's original sound design while serving up that special lossless something. Spielberg is the first to admit The Color Purple is essentially a carefully cloaked period musical and Quincy Jones's music has never sounded better. Orchestral strings flood the soundfield, jazz and ragtime vocals swell and subside, crackly blues tunes warble convincingly, and every last note and lyric is crystal clear. But regardless of whether music is stealing the show or waiting in the wings, the rear speakers remain engaging and effective (even if environmental ambience is occasionally overpowered by Jones's score), directionality is fairly accurate, and consistently crisp and intelligible dialogue inhabits the center speaker at all times. Likewise, the LFE channel isn't as assertive as I expected, nor does it pack as much wallop as it could, but it certainly gets the job done. As twenty-five-year old catalog titles go, The Color Purple sounds great and should easily please classic filmfans and discerning audiophiles alike.
