The Great Mouse Detective Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney deals in two kinds of restorations: complete Diamond Edition overhauls a la Cinderella, which sometimes rub ultra-purists the wrong way (for legitimate reasons), and more minimalistic remasters like The Great Mouse Detective and its 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer, which tend to underwhelm the casual enthusiast (also for legitimate reasons). Though notably softer and grainier than some may prefer, the studio's latest is quite true to its original film elements, flaws and all. Remaining scratches, lines and other blemishes aren't all that distracting, but they aren't exactly in short supply either. Likewise, contrast inconsistencies aren't terribly problematic, but they are more widespread than I would've preferred. Even so, there's something to be said for such a faithful remaster, even if it isn't as visually striking as other animated presentations. Colors have been preserved, without fundamental alteration; black levels are deep and inky, without any loss in fine line detail (as far as I can see); and the integrity of the animators' line art, which by its very nature is neither crisp nor clean, is satisfying, without the use of any unsightly edge enhancement. Minor variations in cel-to-cel color fills produces area-specific flickering of sorts, but it too is a product of the source. As to the encode itself, there isn't any significant banding, macroblocking, aliasing or errant noise to report. Further study may be required to determine just how faithful the presentation is, but all signs point to this being a solid, just not spectacular showing for Basil and company.


The Great Mouse Detective Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't disappoint. It just isn't all that thrilling either. The rear speakers are used sparingly but to responsible effect. LFE output is assertive enough to please but not aggressive enough to convey the full weight of Big Ben's massive gears. And dialogue, while a touch smothered on occasion, is clean, clear and grounded nicely in the cozy mouse holes, bustling underground locales and looming towers of Detective's Victorian England. Hiss and other noise has been minimized without sacrificing fidelity, and dynamics, pans and other elements are more than serviceable. Jaw dropping? Hardly. A successful six-channel presentation of a 1986 animated feature's original sound design? Most definitely.
