Things to Come Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, William Cameron Menzies' Things to Come arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 4K from a 35mm fine-grain composite print held bu the British Film Institute. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Transfer supervisor and colorist: Lee Kline.
Film scanning: Trevor Brown/Deluxe 142, London."

Though the framing is identical, the high-definition transfer used for this release is not identical to the one Network used for their Blu-ray release of Things to Come in the United Kingdom. Brightness levels have been toned down. Contrast settings on the two releases are also different (compare sceencapture #8 with screencapture #2 from our review of the Network release). Grain also appears to be marginally better resolved on the Network release. However, while viewing the film only during the nighttime sequences one could spot sporadic differences. For example, see the first attack on London (see screencapture #7) where this release looks a tad softer. Furthermore, light vertical lines and scratches are still present, but they are not any different than the ones that are also retained on the Network release. Obviously, current digital tools cannot completely remove them without seriously affecting the integrity of the image. Lastly, there are no purely transfer specific anomalies to report in this review. To sum it all up, I lean towards Network's presentation of Things to Come as being slightly more satisfying, but the difference is indeed marginal at best. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Things to Come Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

There are some sporadic clarity fluctuations, but they also appear on the Network release. Depth and crispness are not seriously compromised. Overall dynamic movement, however, is quite limited. The dialog is easy to follow. Also, there is no problematic background hiss.
