The Joy Luck Club Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Joy Luck Club is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Disney/Buena Vista with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. The film has always looked pretty soft, and this Blu-ray continues that tradition, but there is a noticeable and rather dramatic uptick in both saturation and clarity in this new high definition presentation. The best sequences here are probably the "historical" segments, when the film tends to traffic in somewhat more exotic and/or opulent imagery than the often brown, drab imagery of the reunion party and other "current day" footage. Wang tends to favor close-ups and midrange shots throughout the film, both of which offer very good to excellent fine detail. No over aggressive digital tweaking seems to have been done to this release, which retains a very natural filmlike quality.


The Joy Luck Club Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Joy Luck Club features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that, if nothing else, offers the sumptuous beauty of one of Rachel Portman's most evocative and achingly gorgeous scores. The music in fact provides some of the most consistent surround activity, but the film actually has rather good immersion in many large crowd scenes, including the reunion where discrete channelization really helps to create a very vivid sonic creation of a crowded home full of people in different rooms. Dialogue is also very well supported and there's even some perhaps unexpected dynamic range courtesy of some of the backstory sequences. Fidelity remains excellent throughout this presentation and while the overall impression left by this track may seem rather restrained, it's actually very nicely balanced and nuanced, much like the film itself.
