The Shipping News

 (2001)

The Shipping News Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

An inksetter in New York, Quoyle returns to his family's longtime home, a small fishing town in Newfoundland, with his young daughter, after a traumatizing experience with her mother, Petal, who sold her to an illegal adoption agency. Though Quoyle has had little success thus far in life, his shipping news column in the newspaper "The Gammy Bird" finds an audience, and his experiences in the town change his life.

For more about The Shipping News and the The Shipping News Blu-ray release, see the The Shipping News Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Kevin Spacey, Julianne Moore, Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett, Pete Postlethwaite, Scott Glenn

The Shipping News Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Shipping News falls into the "typical" Echo Bridge video quality release sort of "gray area" that's not that bad but far from perfect or even close to perfection. This is a middling, rather bland image -- and the movie's somewhat cold, bleak setting doesn't help matters -- that never really pops or offers much in the way of spectacular detail or clarity. The drab details occasionally showcase some nice worn-down textures -- the old house looks particularly beaten and battered with some quality paint chip and general weathered details -- that help accentuate various scenes. Facial and clothing details suffice but never really get further than that. There's a general blandness and flatness to the image. It's not particularly filmic, though light grain elements remain over much of the film. Colors are uninspired at best but handle that cold exterior well enough. Skin textures can look a little on the pale side, but black are generally stable. Light wear in the form of speckling is evident in places, but never in excess. Mild to severe edge halos are visible, but are not constants. Overall, this is a workable image but not one to use to showcase the best of Blu-ray.


The Shipping News Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Shipping News features a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack that mirrors the video quality in that it's decent but not really noteworthy. The track struggles to recreate some of the film's critical ambient effects, whether minor or major. A lack of underwater immersion hurts the dramatic tension of the opening scene. A driving rain during the family's first stay in the decrepit house doesn't pull the listening audience into the rickety, leaky abode. Such scenes are crucial to establishing and understanding the film, and while the track handles them enough so as to not confuse the listening audience, it fails to really bring them into the movie and truly experience it. The track does seem to pick up a little more steam in a thunderstorm heard near the end of the movie, but only marginally so. Music plays with adequate front end spacing, but there's a muddiness to it that holds it back from two-channel perfection. Dialogue is clear and focused. This track gets the job done but it won't leave listeners with a lasting sonic memory.
