The Secret of NIMH Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Don Bluth and Gary Goldman oversaw a high definition restoration of The Secret of NIMH for the film's 2-disc DVD release, but if this 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer has indeed been sourced from that 2007 remaster I can only surmise that the renovation was far from comprehensive. On Blu-ray, the film exhibits a number of issues that definitely should've been addressed. Dirt and debris are present in varying amounts, there are more than a few scratches, and you'll notice frequent but mild brightness flickering and occasional color fluctuations. I also spotted three or four scenes that are subject to slight telecine wobble—when the image appears to judder from left to right a bit where it should remain static. In short, you shouldn't expect The Secret of NIMH to look like a Disney film on Blu-ray. (Disney also tends to use noise reduction methods to remove grain from their animated films, presenting a more faithful rendering of the artists' original intentions. This is one of the few areas where I think DNR can be a good thing. Here, grain is thick and pervasive; NIMH certainly doesn't look as "clean" as a Disney film, but I think the grittiness does give the movie a certain lo-fi charm.) While some of the issues displayed in the transfer can be distracting, The Secret of NIMH's Blu-ray debut is certainly not an altogether unpleasing viewing experience. Colors are eye-catching, the painted backgrounds have a great sense of depth, outlines are fairly strong, and many of the effects—glowing eyes and candle flames, especially—look wonderful. It's just too bad MGM couldn't have sprung for an all- encompassing digital cleanup. Perhaps someday NIMH will get the restorative overhaul it deserves, but for now, this so-so transfer will have to do.


The Secret of NIMH Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I have few qualms, however, with the film's DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 stereo track. I'm sure some folks probably wish MGM had opted to expand the soundtrack into a full-fledged 5.1 presentation, but I'm fine with the faithful-to-source two-channel mix. The most notable element of the track is Jerry Goldsmith's magical score, the composer's first for an animated feature, and one that he claims as a favorite amongst his prolific output. The music— sometimes tender, sometimes stormy—sounds wonderful, with a rich low and middle range and no high-end brashness. The effects have a similar sense of punch, and despite the lack of rear channel output, the action sequences do often have an immersive quality, thanks to the film's strong sound design. Dialogue can occasionally seem a little thin, but the vocal performances are always easy to understand. As expected, the disc comes with a variety of dub and subtitle tracks. (See above for listing.)
