The Secret World of Arrietty Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

It seems Disney has outdone itself again. Arrietty's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer is perfect. It's that simple. Perfect. No compression issues, no wayward anomalies, no source flaws, no significant banding or artifacting, no aberrant noise, no problems whatsoever. Colors are lovely, with arresting reds, brilliant blues, stunning greens, gorgeous earthtones, and deep, inky blacks. Contrast, meanwhile, has been dialed in with the utmost care, clarity is impeccable, grain is intact (faint as it is), and there isn't a blade of grass, brushstroke, or detail out of place. Crisp, clean lines are in abundance (and completely free of aliasing and ringing), the animation remains smooth and fluid throughout, the painted backgrounds lend a wonderful sense of texture and depth to the image, and every last nuance, flick of the pen, and expression is presented exactly as the animators intended. Moreover, the image is absolutely pristine, the technical encode is immaculate, and there isn't a single distraction or eyesore to be found; certainly none that would detract from the impact of the presentation in any way. I could go on and on, but perfect is perfect, and no amount of explanation could make it any clearer. It just doesn't get better than this.


The Secret World of Arrietty Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

I spent a great deal of time alternating between Arrietty's English and Japanese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks and, for the life of me, I can't decide which one sounds better. I have a preference, of course -- I always gravitate to a film's original language -- but it has nothing to do with technical quality, fidelity or any objective evaluation. For the purposes of this review, I've decided to treat the two as virtually identical and worthy of the same high praise. Dialogue is crystal clear from beginning to end, voices are nestled within the world (rather than floating above the rest of the soundscape), and the smallest sound effects are given ample opportunity to make a big impression. The rear speakers perform their due diligence as well, creating a subtle yet wholly immersive experience that envelops and involves the listener at every turn. The ceaseless summer-evening drone of insects and the chirping mid-afternoon chorus of birds reign over the soundfield with convincing fullness, a host of precise directional effects and transparent channel pans are as disarming as a cool, quiet breeze, and CÚcile Corbel's score rises and retreats with delicate finesse. LFE output isn't exactly what I'd call commanding, but it is assertive, particularly in the third act when Shō gives Homily the kitchen of her dreams and, soon after, the Borrowers have to contend with Haru. All in all, it isn't the most bombastic sonic experience, but The Secret World of Arrietty, be it the original Japanese language version or the English dub, couldn't sound much better than it does here.
