The Wizard of Oz 3D

 (1939)

The Wizard of Oz 3D Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Dorothy Gale and her dog Toto are swept away by a tornado from their home in Kansas to the magical land of Oz. They set off on a quest down a yellow brick road to see the Wizard, who can help them return home. Along the way, they are joined by others seeking the Wizard's help: a scarecrow, who wamts a brain; a Tin Man, who wants a heart; and a lion, who wants courage.

For more about The Wizard of Oz 3D and the The Wizard of Oz 3D Blu-ray release, see the The Wizard of Oz 3D Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley, Billie Burke

The Wizard of Oz 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

"The 3D conversion was a long and complex project which Warner Bros. initiated with a very high resolution 8k scanning of the original Technicolor camera negative. The restored 2D image was then transformed by creating a depth-map of each frame to construct 3D imagery and determine distances from the viewer's vantage point. This was followed by the long process (with the use of a rotoscope) to further refine viewer distances and fully layer shapes and objects."

The burning question many of you are asking -- other than, "How does The Wizard of Oz fare in 3D?" -- is "just how much better can The Wizard of Oz possibly look?" Warner's 2009 Blu-ray release remains a stunning catalog standout. Does the film's new 8k scan produce a higher quality 1080p encode? The short answer is not exactly. For all intents and purposes, the 2013 Oz looks every bit as good as the 2009 Oz. Try as I might, I had a difficult time discerning much of a difference in quality... to which the informed among you are already nodding your heads. Whether scanned at 4k or 8k, a film still has to be downscaled to accommodate a relatively inferior 1080p Blu-ray presentation. So while combing through screenshots or comparing the two versions frame by frame will undoubtedly lead to discoveries of tiny improvements in the image, the human eye simply isn't going to perceive much of a difference when the film is in motion. What has been corrected and improved, almost entirely, are many of the minor issues that crept into the 2009 version. Additional print damage and blemishes haves been addressed and eliminated by the new restoration (not that there was much in the 2009 transfer to begin with) and the faint, altogether negligible artifacting I noticed in a few shots in 2009 appear to be absent from the 2013 edition. Grain remains intact too, and the utmost respect has been paid to the texture and intent of the original photography and film. It's enough to justify that last little bump in score (from a 4.5 to a 5), although I still wouldn't necessarily call the new restoration and transfer utterly flawless. Worthy of top marks, though? Absolutely.

As for the 3D experience, I was quite surprised. Still am actually. Depth and dimensionality are more convincing than I expected, and very rarely does the film resemble a pop-up storybook. Great care has been invested in making the actors and the world they inhabit look wondrous in 3D, and the film's elaborate sets -- already a hallmark of color, vibrancy and cinematic craft -- are more immersive than ever before; almost to the point of inviting the viewer to step into the screen and tour the MGM lot. There are some drawbacks, if you can call them that. Every now and then, a face, tree or background painting is too flat; the film's smoke, fire and practical effects don't always play well with the 3D conversion; and the fact that each locale is a large-scale set is made that much more obvious. However, Oz's 3D conversion comes close, so very close, to achieving the illusion of native 3D; as if the production were shot in 3D all those years ago. No small feat considering the challenges the restoration and conversion teams faced. Not only were they tasked with producing a magnificent 8K restoration, they were tasked with justifying the existence of a 3D release of The Wizard of Oz. After all, it's not as if fans were clamoring to see the 1939 classic in 3D. Add to that the precision of the 1080p/MVC-encoded transfer -- the lack of aliasing and other anomalies, as well as the image's near-immunity to ghosting (on displays that are prone to crosstalk that is) -- and you have a striking 3D presentation and a definitive transfer of the film.

It simply doesn't get much better than this. Of course, I shared the same sentiment in 2009. That's why the future of home video remains so exciting from decade to decade. Here's hoping Warner celebrates Oz's 80th anniversary with a True4k presentation that renders even the best of 1080p Blu-ray obsolete. I can't wait to see how much more the studio's 8k restoration has to offer.

(Note: Only the 3D disc (Disc 1) features the new restoration and MVC-encoded transfer. The 2D disc (Disc 2) features the same 2D VC-1 transfer as the 2009 Blu-ray release. Those with both a 3D Blu-ray player and 3D-ready display can switch off the 3D and watch the new presentation in 2D. Unfortunately, though, those who don't own a 3D Blu-ray player and display will not be able to view the new presentation in 2D.)


The Wizard of Oz 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Virtually identical to its 2009 Dolby TrueHD 5.1 counterpart, Warner's new DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't fail or falter for a second. Dialogue is clean, intelligible and largely free of air hiss or a noise floor, preserving the distinct tonal personality of the film's 1939 recordings while blessing each voice with a fresh, 21st century warmth. It only helps that prioritization is remarkable, and that each song blossoms and blooms beautifully. Lyrics and orchestration fill the soundfield in terrific harmony and the various score pieces and trumpeted fanfares are sharp and resonant. It helps that rousing LFE output bolsters each musical cue, every thoom of the Wizard's thundering performances, and all of the Witch's eruptions and explosions. The rear speakers are subdued, paying unspoken respect to the film's original audio mix, but still involve themselves in everything from the music to the swirling winds of Dorothy's tornado. Fire crackles with unexpected intensity, a menacing forest rustles with immersive activity, and scrambling monkeys smoothly scamper from channel to channel. Could Oz's lossless track stand its ground in a battle with a modern Blu-ray blockbuster? Of course not. The age of the production would limit the impact of any lossless track, no matter how well-crafted. However, as catalog classics go, it doesn't get much better than The Wizard of Oz. Anyone armed with appropriate expectations will be delighted.
