The Lovely Bones Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Paramount's 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer of The Lovely Bones is, simply, magnificent. The image practically leaps from the screen in every shot; it's fantastically vibrant with bright and bold but natural coloring across the board, whether in clothing, grasses, leaves, furniture upholstery, random nicknacks, or practically any item in the film. The picture also features a heavy golden tint to it that's more prominent in some sequences than in others, which somewhat influences the absolute look of the color palette and flesh tones, but never to the detriment of the image. Additionally, the transfer delivers what is nothing short of positively startling amounts of fine detail. Overhead shots of a farm house and a nearby sinkhole where the texture of the building's wood grains and chipped paints and the surrounding grasses that are both highly distinguishable and positively clear even from a distance simply amaze. Yards covered in scattered fallen leaves practically allow the viewer to make out the fine lines, ridges, and edging on each leaf. Building textures, whether exterior shots of homes or even the bland interior of a school building, look amazingly lifelike and dimensional. Even more mundane objects are wonderfully displayed: the texture of an orange peel or the intricate knitting of a winter cap simply startle in the absolute definition afforded them by this transfer. There's also a remarkable sense of depth to the image; backgrounds remain largely focused and sharp, and even softer backgrounds only allow for an even clearer foreground. Black levels are spot-on in every appropriately dark scene. A faint hint of banding may be seen around a couple of light sources against darker backdrops, but it's not at all a detriment to the overall image, particularly considering how masterful it is elsewhere. The print is in pristine condition with nary a single blemish to be found, and a fine layer of film grain rounds out what is a transfer that's so pristine that there just aren't enough superlatives to describe how handsome it is. So far, this is the must-see transfer of 2010.


The Lovely Bones Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Though not on the same level of excellence as the reference-grade picture quality, The Lovely Bones' DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is nevertheless a high quality offering. The track is generally reserved and contemplative, light and enveloping, but more pronounced and powerful when need be, making it a perfect companion for a film of this sort. The track incorporates a wonderful atmosphere into many of its scenes; the ambient chatter and footsteps as heard in a mall scene in chapter one or, later, ringing telephones and the sounds of an old typewriter hard at work inside a police station both prove excellent examples of the track's ability to harness the power of subtle yet important audible material in creating through the track an actual living, breathing environment and not simply a collection of sounds spilling from a random speaker. Various effects -- particularly those that are a bit more aggressive -- effortlessly maneuver around the listening are to create a wider sense of space and realism to the experience. While lacking a plethora of more pronounced action sound effects, The Lovely Bones' lossless soundtrack delivers its share of attention-grabbing moments, such as a thunder and lightning barrage as heard in chapter eight. Brian Eno's (For All Mankind) score is handled with precision, and dialogue reproduction is consistently intelligible and strong, whether in conversations or voiceover narration. While not a track that's going to be used to break in a new subwoofer or demonstrate the intensely powerful effects some of the best action-oriented Blu-ray discs have to offer, listeners that are appreciative of what a more nuanced approach can lend to a dramatically-oriented film will fine plenty to like about Paramount's latest lossless DTS offering.
