What Dreams May Come Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Universal has been slowly but surely releasing its entire HD DVD catalog on Blu-ray, and What Dreams May Come marks one of the last high definition stragglers to wash up on Blu shores. Unfortunately, the studio hasn't elected to remaster the film, meaning the 1080p/VC-1 transfer that graces this release is identical to the one that first appeared on the 2007 HD DVD. Edge enhancement poses a problem, mild to moderate ringing haunts several shots, minor contrast inconsistencies are prevalent, and some fleeting print nicks and scratches briefly flutter into view. But hold onto hope. Colors are both lush and lively, and primaries are absolutely lovely; so much so that the film's rich, painterly backgrounds all but swirl to life on the screen. Contrast stands firm far more often than it relents, delineation is decisively decent, and black levels are inky on the whole (barring a few problematic sequences in which crush or muted shadows rear their hellish heads). Detail wavers a bit on occasion, but any resulting softness is tied to Eduardo Serra's photography and Ward's visual effects sequences; nothing more sinister. Fine textures flourish, object definition is pleasing, and the film's faint veneer of grain is intact. Moreover, significant artifacting, banding and aliasing are held at bay, and the transfer renders the standard DVD irrelevant. What Dreams May Come isn't as gorgeous as it could be, but it comes close enough to warrant an upgrade.


What Dreams May Come Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is quite a step up from the 2007 HD DVD's Dolby Digital-Plus mix. For one, rear speaker activity is more lively and engaging, and takes fuller advantage of the entire soundfield. Directionality is fairly effective, pans are eerily transparent, Michael Kamen's score eagerly envelops the listener, and the soundfield is warm and inviting when Christy is in heaven, and chaotic and distressing when he descends into hell. LFE output is more powerful and precise as well, and the roar of burning freighters, the rush of Stygian waters, and the thunder of a bottomless vortex make their presence known. Dialogue isn't as reliable -- some lines are duller than others -- but voices are generally warm, intelligible and well-prioritized. And while there are other minor oddities, all of them are attributable to the film's original sound design. All in all, What Dreams May Come isn't going to sweep anyone away, but it will please those willing to embrace Ward's most harmonious and dissonant visions of the afterlife.
