Where the Wild Things Are Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Faithful and filmic, the Blu-ray edition of Where the Wild Things Are boasts a striking 1080p/VC-1 transfer that complements the tone and tenor of Jonze's disquieting vision. Mired in rough-hewn browns, winter-cast yellows, and languishing oranges, cinematographer Lance Acord's bleak palette isn't brimming with the lush greens and glowing primaries filmfans might expect. But it is beautiful -- breathtaking even -- in its own right. Trapped beneath searing white skies and imprisoned in bottomless shadows, Max and his monsters seems as much a part of their world as it seems a part of them. Skintones and furshades are lifelike, depth is commendable, contrast is strong and stable, and blacks are well-resolved. A handful of nighttime scenes (primarily those involving Max's arrival and the aftermath of his manufactured war) are a tad problematic, but any shortcomings trace back to Jonze and Acord's at-times jittery handheld photography, not Warner's technical transfer. Likewise, soft shots litter the proceedings, but each instance appears to be inherent to the original print. Frankly, Where the Wild Things Are will never be a tack-sharp film, nor should it be. Even so, textures are quite clean and refined, the creatures' unwieldy hair is nicely rendered, delineation is as revealing as it should be, and the cracks and crevices of Max and Carol's spherical fortress look amazing. Moreover, I didn't notice any artifacting, aliasing, ringing, unintentional source noise, DNR, or edge enhancement. Some fleeting banding and crush appeared during two late-night conversations, but neither issue became a distraction. All things considered, Warner's high definition efforts should please anyone who appreciates Where the Wild Things Are for what it is: a decidedly dark, fittingly mature take on a classic children's tale.


Where the Wild Things Are Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Wild rumpus, indeed. Where the Wild Things Are bounds onto Blu-ray with a commanding DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track; one that revels in every romp, roll, and roar Max and his monsters have to offer. From crashing waves to toppling trees, from forest races to ravine wars, the LFE channel is resonant and earthy, granting explosions and scattering debris convincing weight and presence. Rear speaker activity is just as impressive, readily enveloping the listener in Max's world through absorbing ambient effects and haunting acoustics, and celebrating Carter Burwell and Karen Orzolek's unforgettable music with each lingering melody, percussion flourish, and dissonant chord. But Warner's mix also proves itself to be a refreshingly subtle sonic powerhouse, striking a near-perfect balance between its creatures' chaotic misadventures and Jonze's sobering stretches of silent heartache. Dialogue, regardless of Max's emotional state, remains crisp and intelligible from beginning to end, prioritization is impeccable, and directionality is eerily precise. Wind whips across the desert plains and rustles a smoke-swept canopy of trees, a dusty breeze pelts a brambled fort, and the oceans wave lull and crash near the shore. It's all a breathtaking experience, undermined only by the occasional mismanaged pan. As startlingly real as Max's imaginary world is, Warner's stirring lossless audio track makes it even more so. I was utterly entranced.
