The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

 (2008)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Blu-ray truly is a masterpiece with perfect scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

"I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,' adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be.

For more about The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and the The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Blu-ray release, see the The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson, Julia Ormond, Jason Flemyng, Mahershala Ali
Director: David Fincher

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button unfolds on Blu-ray with a stellar 1080p, 2.39:1-framed transfer. Shot almost exclusively -- and transfered to Blu-ray -- digitally, this transfer is a pristine example of high definition photography at its very best. From the opening studio logos where a cloudburst of buttons rain onto the screen and onward, the image impresses, this opening scene only hinting at the clarity and definition of the transfer to come. Parts of the transfer are less-than-pristine, but intentionally so; some of the flashbacks scenes show intentional damage and wear: vertical lines run through the image, accompanied by flickering, spots, and speckles, reminiscent, in a way, of Planet Terror but here instead intending to recreate the look of film from a far earlier era than the 1970s. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button features plenty of dark scenes; the opening nighttime shots in post-World War One New Orleans feature deep and dark blacks, while interior shots offer a heavy yellow and golden tint, many colors washed away under the sepia-toned appearance. Detail is excellent, too. The crusty brick walls of Queenie's bedroom reveal plenty of texture and information, while the more lavishly-appointed, warmer, and more inviting interior of the nursing home looks relaxed and cozy. The inside of a revival tent, too, seen in chapter three, reveals all the grime and dirt on the cloth sides. When the film sees brighter colors, it truly sparkles. Young Daisy's bright blue eyes dominate every frame they are in; the yellow of a taxi features an extraordinarily real tone; and various outdoor shots offer vibrant greens that are stunning, to say the least, across the entire spectrum. Flesh tones, too, are rendered nicely. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button's digital transfer is sharp as a tack and makes for a reference Blu-ray disc from Criterion.


The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button features a high quality and realistic DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The film presents a broad spectrum of sonic experiences, each excelling in the lossless presentation. Subtle sound effects that add a lifelike touch to the film sound great in most every segment. Rain hitting the window, the sounds of the medical machines in the room, and the chatter in the hallways of the 2005 New Orleans hospital, all make for a nice, realistic experience. The track picks up in intensity as it flashes back to the night of the end of the Great War. Fireworks explode all around the soundstage with solid, deep, and rattling lows while revelers cheer in the streets and cause quite the audible ruckus, the listener immediately placed in their midst. Music, too, deeply and clearly penetrates the listening area, with a wonderful amount of detail and clarity, focused mainly in the front but with strong rear-channel and subwoofer support. Many sound effects are quite powerful; the blasts of thunder that precede Hurricane Katrina and the fog horn of Captain Mike's tugboat, for example, feature tight, low bass and a realistic presence. Perhaps most impressive is a shootout on the high seas during World War Two. Presented in chapter seven, the sequence is a sonic marvel, the tracer rounds audibly flying across the soundstage with the impacts of the bullets both heard and felt as they clank off metal in every corner of the listening area. Also featuring clear and precise dialogue reproduction, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button makes for an outstanding soundtrack.
