The Day the Earth Stood Still

 (2008)

The Day the Earth Stood Still Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Renowned scientist Dr. Helen Benson finds herself face to face with an alien called Klaatu, who travels across the universe to warn of an impending global crisis. When forces beyond Helena's control treat the extraterrestrial as a hostile and deny his request to address the world's leaders, she and her estranged stepson Jacob quickly discover the deadly ramifications of Klaatu's claim that he is "a friend to the Earth". Now Helen must find a way to convince the entity who was sent to destroy us that mankind is worth saving--but it may be too late. The process has begun.

The Day the Earth Stood Still Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Day the Earth Stood Still arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer that is easily of reference quality. Fine detail is striking, and the clarity of the transfer is remarkable in most every scene. The print is in absolutely pristine condition, no surprise given the big-budget, recent-release status of the film. Various nighttime, exterior shots of New York City feature startling levels of clarity, doubtful the cityscape could look better were the television a window rather than a display device replaying a film. Close-up shots reveal detail that is perfectly lifelike in appearance; a close-up of a doctor's surgical mask, for example, showcases every stitch and texture in the material; his several-hour-old beard sees every hair, and the fine lines in the face, particularly around the eyes, reveal every nuance of the skin's surface. The film takes on a blue-gray, steely look. In that way, colors are slightly muted but only insofar as they fit in with the intended look of the film. Although the film has a somewhat cold, uninviting appearance, detail, texture, sharpness, and clarity never suffer. Whites remain stable and blacks are terrifically inky. The disc sees no apparent edge enhancement, heavy noise reduction, blocking, or any other visible anomalies at normal viewing distances. In short, The Day the Earth Stood Still is another fine transfer from Fox, the disc a standout despite its somewhat muted color palette.


The Day the Earth Stood Still Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Fox delivers The Day the Earth Stood Still to Blu-ray with a remarkable DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. From the opening moments of the film, this soundtrack proves its mettle and establishes itself as one of the strongest, clearest, and most realistic tracks yet. A cold wind swirls about the soundstage, flowing precisely through each and every speaker, while music plays with precision across the front soundstage. It practically creates a chill in the room and is the first of a number of demo-worthy audio sequences that should begin to make the rounds at home theater retailers as go-to speaker and audio gear demonstration showpieces. The remainder of the film's reference-quality segments come from more traditional, action-oriented sequences. The many scenes featuring military hardware shine. Helicopter rotors spin around the listening area in several scenes, the sonic impact of the blades practically devastating to the senses. Bass kicks into overdrive throughout the film; the revelation of the spacecraft in chapter four features a practically nonstop rumbling that is deep and low, providing the subwoofer with a hefty workout. Every action sequence sounds marvelous, with the soundstage and subwoofer used to incredible effect, creating a truly immersive environment that places the listener directly into the movie. As expected, dialogue reproduction is perfect. The Day the Earth Stood Still ranks among the best soundtracks currently available on Blu-ray.
