The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the leaflet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"Supervised by director Wes Anderson, this new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on a Scanity film scanner from the 35mm original camera negative at Sony Colorworks in Culver City, California. Thousands of instances of dirt and debris were manually removed using MTI's DRS, while Digital Vision's Phoenix was for small dirt, warps, and jitter. The original 5.1 soundtrack was mastered at 24-bit from the original magnetic track using Pro Tools HD.

Transfer supervisors: Wes Anderson, Lee Kline.
Colorist: Sheri Eiusenberg/Sony Colorworks, Culver City, CA."

The film looks quite beautiful on Blu-ray. Excluding the underwater footage, where some minor clarity fluctuations are present, virtually the entire film looks remarkably crisp and vibrant. The daylight footage, in particular, boasts tremendous depth. Color reproduction is excellent -- there is a wide range of wonderfully well saturated yellows, browns, blues, and greens, and impressively balanced grays and blacks. Overall image stability is outstanding. Also, there are no encoding anomalies to report in this review. Finally, it is easy to tell that dirt, debris, and jitter have been removed as best as possible. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The sound is as good as it can possibly be. It has tremendous depth, clarity is fantastic, and the range of nuanced dynamics is very impressive (see the two shootouts). Mark Mothersbaugh's soundtrack has primarily a supportive role, but the music is always well rounded and balance expertly managed (there are no sudden spikes or drops in dynamic activity). The dialog is very crisp, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow.
