The Pagemaster Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Pagemaster is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This is a solid if just slightly underwhelming looking transfer that benefits from elements with only very minor damage. Balancing that is just slightly tepid looking color, though perhaps ironically the few CGI elements seem to have weathered the storm of time better than some of the traditionally drawn cel animation. There's a completely natural layer of grain in evidence here and if the transfer looks slightly soft a lot of the time, it's not necessarily a distraction, especially in the longer animated section, where things look kind of "old school" anyway. Line detail remains reasonably sharp in this long section and colors, while not quite as vivid as some may hope, are nicely saturated and certainly very varied. There are some density fluctuations in the animated sequences which may be "baked in" to the source. As with the animated sequence, the live action bookending moments look just slightly soft, but feature good detail in close-ups and accurate, nicely saturated, color.


The Pagemaster Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Pagemaster's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is nicely immersive in fits and starts, though it's perhaps just slightly less rambunctious than some might expect from a fantasy film like this one. Things get off to a good start in the storm sequence, when the roar of thunder gives the low end a real workout and the pelt of rain and hail fills the surrounds. Once the animated section takes over, there are some great sound effects, including some spooky moments in the graveyard leading up to Jekyll's house, the nice sea sequence which find Richie chasing Moby Dick, and the fun treasure hunting sequence with Long John Silver. The two featured songs nicely fill the surround channels as well. The mix here is a bit on the noisy side at times, as mentioned above in the body of the review, and unfortunately the tendency is to place all the dialogue in the front channels, where it only sounds more crowded, especially when characters are talking over each other. That said, fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is very wide.
