The Raven

 (2012)

The Raven Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

A fictionalized account of the last days of Edgar Allan Poe's life, in which the poet is in pursuit of a serial killer whose murders mirror those in the writer's stories.

For more about The Raven and the The Raven Blu-ray release, see the The Raven Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans, Brendan Gleeson, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kevin McNally (I)
Director: James McTeigue

The Raven Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Raven alights onto Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that does justice to the film's appropriately gloomy cinematography. Shot on 35mm, the movie retains its inherent filmic texture—no signs of digital noise reduction here—with a layer of grain that settles over the image and does noticeably spike somewhat during darker scenes. Of which there are many. If there's one issue with this picture, it's that it's very dark, so try to minimize glare on your screen before viewing. Black levels do crush a bit, although this seems to be an intentional part of the film's moribund look. Otherwise, this transfer is quite strong, with no overt compression issues, no weird digital anomalies, and no encode problems. While not the sharpest film I've seen recently, The Raven's high definition image yields a considerable amount of fine detail, most noticeably in closeups, where facial features and clothing textures are keenly defined. As for color grading, the film alternates between scenes with a chilly blue cast and those with a soft candlelight glow; either way, the picture is appreciably dense, with no wishy-washy grayness in the shadows. Overall, the film has a very stylized look— not unlike the Sherlock Holmes movies it so clearly wants to be—and the Blu-ray presentation seems faithful to both source and intent.


The Raven Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Depressive 19th century Baltimore is brought to aural life with the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, a bombastic amalgam of high-intensity music and carefully sculpted sound design. The dynamic mix makes full use of the multi-speaker presentation, with fairly frequent cross- channel effects and quiet but near-constant environmental ambience. The low blow of a fog horn. The clang of a distant bell. Carriages buckling through the rears. Glass bottles broken stage left. The party clamor at the masquerade ball. Claps of thunder, water dripping in tunnels beneath the city, and gunshots piercing the soundfield. The dialogue is always clean and understandable, with voices that seem to accurately reflect the acoustics of their surroundings. Spanish composer Lucas Vidal provides a pounding, wound-up orchestral score that sounds great, even if it does feel like a forced attempt to ratchet the tension. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles—in easy-to-read white lettering—but no dubs or descriptive audio.
