The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Hand That Rocks the Cradle was one of several films shot by cinematographer Robert Elswit for director Hanson, but as Elswit said when he accepted the Oscar for P.T. Anderson's There Will Be Blood, much of what he does is determined by the production design. The Bartel household where much of the film takes place features a neutral-toned decor that becomes a place of perpetual blandness under the perpetually overcast Seattle sky. It's not black-and-white so much as tone-on-tone, which must have made the scenes challenging to light. The image on Disney's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray has, for the most part, a pleasingly film-like quality with natural grain patterns, appropriate black levels, good but not overstated contrast and colors that are dialed down without becoming too pale. Detail is excellent throughout. Here and there, very lightly, a touch of digital sharpening can be detected, but one must be looking for it. It's certainly not enough to create obvious edge halos or other pronounced artifacts. Compression errors, banding and similar artifacts were not an issue.


The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original stereo soundtrack has been remixed for 5.1 and released on Blu-ray in DTS-HD MA 5.1. The mix is front-centered and has almost nothing in the way of surround activity except for an increased sense of presence and depth. Dialogue is clear, and the effective score by Graeme Revell has a full dynamic range.
