The Princess Bride Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Princess Bride debuts on Blu-ray with a fine 1080p transfer framed inside its native 1.85:1-window. This Blu-ray transfer offers a nice, noticeable improvement over the DVD. The image is consistently strong, sharp, and clear, with well-defined textures and many eye-catching details. The image remains stable in exhibiting fine clarity in both the foreground and background of most every frame. Particularly impressive are the richly-adorned fabrics worn by the players. Each reveals all of the stitches and adornments nicely, and the varied colors of each, from more earthy tones to vivid reds and purples, sparkle. Likewise, the lush green terrains seen throughout the movie offer a natural, pleasant appearance that both reveal fine amounts of detail -- often down to individual blades of grass -- and fantastic color. A layer of grain over the entirety of the image adds a good cinematic feel to the transfer. Although a few speckles and pops creep up from time to time over the print, this remains a strong, eye-catching and generally first-rate transfer sure to please longtime fans of the film. This is a fabulous transfer from MGM, a fine example of a catalogue title done right.


The Princess Bride Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Princess Bride features a solid DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The surround speakers work to strong effect through parts of the film; the "eel" sequence in chapter five features the shrieking creatures swimming and screaming around the soundstage as the music swells to a pitch. Elsewhere in the film, wind swirls about, enveloping the listener and practically placing a chill in the room. Bass rumbles here and there, the "fire swamp" sequence in chapter eleven a fine example of the generally subtle yet highly effective lows that come into play several times throughout the film. However, the front three speakers handle much of the track to fine effect. Music plays clearly and accurately across the front, and dialogue is delivered crisply and accurately through the center channel. The Princess Bride has never sounded better at home.
