The Wind Rises

 (2013)

The Wind Rises Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Inspired by the aesthetics of design, and the freedom of flying, Jiro Horikoshi only dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes. Nearsighted from a young age, and unable to be a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company in 1927. Having dreamed of creating an elegant and flight worthy plane since childhood, Jiro's life-long labor finally pays off in adulthood, when he creates the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. What Jiro never imagined, however, not even in his wildest dreams, was the fate that would befall his beloved creation Ś that his labor of love would eventually be used for something beyond his wildest expectation: war.

The Wind Rises Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Disney's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation is absolutely gorgeous. Every shot, every scene. Without exception. Colors are beautiful and beautifully saturated, contrast is lovely and consistent, primaries pop, and black levels are deep and satisfying. Detail is excellent as well, with crisp, clean line art free of ringing and aliasing, carefully preserved textures and background subtleties, and nothing in the way of errant noise or noise reduction. A faint veneer of grain is present, though wholly unobtrusive, and there isn't any macroblocking or banding to report. It's as perfect and flawless a presentation as any Miyazaki fan could hope for.


The Wind Rises Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Miyazaki made two very interesting choices when it came to The Wind Rises' sound design. The first is that the film features a single-channel mix, which Disney's English and Japanese DTS-HD Master Audio Mono tracks recreate faithfully and, as insomuch as mono is capable, spectacularly. The second is that the movie's sound effects have been created using the human voice. Roaring engines, whirring propellers, chugging trains, rumbling earthquakes et al. The Blu-ray's lossless mix makes each one a delight too, without anything in the way of issues or mishaps to report. Dialogue is clean, clear and intelligible, the rest of the soundscape follows suit, and Joe Hisaishi's score isn't forced to compete at any point. While some will no doubt be disappointed with Miyazaki's move to mono, and while a 5.1 mix would I'm sure have been amazing in its own right, this is a matter of filmmaker's intention and has been scored as such. Purists needn't worry about dubtitling either. The English subtitles provide a direct translation of the original Japanese audio.
