The Pillars of the Earth

 (TV) (2010)

The Pillars of the Earth Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

The Pillars of the Earth is set against a backdrop of war, religious strife and power struggles which tears lives and families apart. In that time, there rises a magnificent Cathedral in Kingsbridge. Against the backdrop, love-stories entwine: Tom, the master builder, Aliena, the noblewoman, the sadistic Lord William, Philip, the prior of Kingsbridge, Jack, the artist in stone work and Ellen, the woman from the forest who casts a curse. At once, this is a sensuous and enduring love story and an epic that shines with the fierce spirit of a passionate age. Follett masterfully weaves these stories through political turmoil of 12th century England, creating a relevant and viable world for today's audience and for generations to come.

For more about The Pillars of the Earth and the The Pillars of the Earth Blu-ray release, see the The Pillars of the Earth Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Ian McShane, Matthew Macfadyen, Eddie Redmayne, Hayley Atwell, Natalia Wörner, David Oakes
Director: Sergio Mimica-Gezzan

The Pillars of the Earth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

"The Pillars of the Earth" arrives on Blu-ray with a gorgeous 1080i, 1.78:1 high definition transfer; please note that the information on the back of the box incorrectly lists 1080p. Though it occasionally appears slightly glossy, "Pillars" delivers a nearly faultless high definition image that's overflowing with exquisite detailing that's evident in nearly every single frame. Sony's transfer captures the subtlest of nuances on the sometimes frayed or muddied period garments, faces, chain mail armor, muddy dirt, gravely roads, stone façades, straw roofs, wooden accents, or any other number of objects seen throughout the series. This transfer offers plenty of splashes of bright but reserved and in no way over-boosted or unnatural colors, but the predominant shades of gray and earth tones are splendidly reproduced, giving the series a somewhat cold, tired, and gloomy appearance but not one that engenders too much of a sense of visual or emotional fatigue. Blacks are wonderfully deep and inky without exhibiting excess black crush, and flesh tones seem spot-on accurate throughout. Depth of field is nicely realized, and the transfer is consistently and naturally sharp and clean. Blocking and banding are practically nonexistent, and only scant traces of noise and aliasing are readily evident. "The Pillars of the Earth" looks fantastic, and it's another in an already lengthy list of top-tier transfers from Sony.


The Pillars of the Earth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

"The Pillars of the Earth" builds its story through a wonderful DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. This is a superb presentation from beginning to end that passes every technical test. Though a made-for-television miniseries, "The Pillars of the Earth" features a grand score that's epic in both feel and presentation and is expertly handled by Sony's DTS track. It delivers a rich cinematic texture in every episode, remaining clean and accurate while playing with a grandiose and elegantly sweeping sensation that adds quite a bit to the overall "Pillars" experience. The surround speakers are utilized throughout as well, helping to support various atmospherics such as pouring rain, background music, or the patron chatter around an outdoor marketplace. The track handles various echoing sensations with realism and ease, while more impressively loud and violent effects, such as raging fire or crumbling blocks, immerse the audience in hot flames or send then them scattering for cover, respectively. Of course, it goes without saying that dialogue is never problematic, playing with a crisp center-focused and natural pitch. "The Pillars of the Earth" sounds fantastic, and Sony is once again proven to be one of the best in Blu-ray soundtrack business.
