The Ten Commandments Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

In a word? Gorgeous. Paramount's Blu-ray release of The Ten Commandments is a magnificent sight to behold on Blu-ray. The studio has smartly spread the film out across two discs to ensure the best possible quality; no worries, the break comes at the film's intermission, with disc one running 2:15:48 and disc two clocking in at 1:35:49. The image certainly benefits from the added breathing room. The film opens with Cecil B. DeMille stepping out on stage to speak on his picture's behalf; the curtains behind him are awash in scrumptious detailing, and the contrasting gold and gray color scheme appears naturally rendered. Both amazing detailing and lush color reproduction remains throughout the film. Whether the texture of the old straw basket used to carry baby Moses down the Nile, the orante detailing in both the stitching and accents on the regal Egyptian clothing, or the sandy and pebbly Egyptian terrain, the transfer exhibits precision details both up-close and far from the camera. The image is incredibly crisp and nicely detailed even at a distance; depth of field is fantastic, too, and the transfer is capable of revealing sharp and intricate textures far off into the back end of the frame. Colors are breathtaking; bright blues, natural greens as seen in foliage, and even the varied earthen colors that are prominent in the film are all wonderfully rendered. Flesh tones enjoy exceptional neutrality, and black levels are generally strong. The image retains a light coating of grain; though a few scenes do favor a slightly smoothed-over texture, they are easily the exception rather than the rule. Of course, The Ten Commandments is replete with optical effects shots that don't hold up very well; demarcation lines between "live" shots and inserted effects/backgrounds are plainly visible -- particularly considering the boost in resolution afforded to the image by the 1080p resolution -- but they're also an integral part of the film and have been lovingly left intact. All said, this is a breathtaking transfer. If Paramount's 1080p transfer doesn't bring a tear to the eye of die hard film enthusiasts craving to see epic classics loving restored and presented to this level of excellence, then nothing will.


The Ten Commandments Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Ten Commandments is never going to sound like some modern-day Action extravaganza. Paramount's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, however, serves the movie remarkably well, handling the picture's critical elements superbly and never forcing the issue or delivering anything resembling phony or amped-up effects just for the sake of making the 5.1 track more active. The film begins with a brief musical overture that's wonderfully smooth and spacious, playing primarily across the front three speakers but enjoying a hint of back-channel support. Neither this selection nor anything else in the film can or does match the immaculate and lifelike clarity of the best modern soundtracks, but this lossless presentation does breathe a new life into the picture's score, presenting it with an accuracy that it probably hasn't enjoyed since it was in theaters. The opening title music sports the same qualities, but it is aided by a subtly effective low end accompaniment that gives it a bit more weight than is evident in the overture music. The Ten Commandments is primarily built on character interaction and dialogue; the spoken word is given the prominence and clarity it requires through faultless center channel execution. Surrounds are used sparsely, but effectively, not only in support of music but a few more prominent sound effects, such as a heavy gusting wind that challenges the resolve of a recently left-for-dead-in-the-desert Moses or the thud of hail pounding the Egyptian dwellings during one of the plagues. While it's not the most engaging track out there, this is, like the accompanying video presentation, nothing short of a splendid revelation; longtime fans of The Ten Commandments are sure to enjoy the boost in overall clarity and detail afforded to the picture's soundtrack thanks to Paramount's wonderful lossless presentation.
