The Horse Whisperer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

"The Horse Whisperer" is a difficult film to assess on BD, with the AVC encoded image presentation carrying a specific look to the film that takes some time to adjust to. First, there's a question of aspect ratio intent, with the opening of the picture (up to the 33:20 mark) simulating a 1.85:1 image with the use of pillarboxing, turning over to 2.33:1 when Annie and grace hit the road to Montana. The transition is handled smoothly. Less convincing is the balance between sharp and soft cinematography, which carries to such an extreme, it calls into question Redford's intent. The disc handles the softness with dignity, though detail is purposely washed away with a golden haze, leaving Booker on the angelic side, wiping away age particulars. It's distracting, but the erratic look of the movie appears connected to the source, not the disc. Skintones are on the troubling side, pushing a little too red at times. Shadow detail is comfortable but rarely remarkable, with a few stable encounters providing muddy blacks and limited distances. Colors are strong and stable, especially when the effort hits the open range, supplying a rich feel of natural hues, from rolling green grasslands to amber skies, properly flexing some HD muscle.


The Horse Whisperer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix is more stable than exploratory, keeping in line with the feature's modest intent. Dialogue exchanges are crisp and full, carried frontally with confidence. Hushed emotional beats are cleanly defined, along with a sense of life in group encounters, with nothing muffled or distorted. Scoring carries a welcome force, spotlighting lifting orchestrations that often feel out an immersive listening experience, acting as dramatic lungs for the production, supported by a fresh recording. Atmospherics are comfortable, offering the surrounds wind and rain to manage, though there's no real directional activity to rile up the track. Low-end is modest, kicking up with panicky horses and the initial accident sequence of the movie.
