Who Framed Roger Rabbit Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

It'd be easy to dismiss Roger Rabbit's remaster and subsequent 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video transfer with a shrug and a "coulda, shoulda been better." But separating the inherent source issues from the minor but prevailing encoding issues makes all the difference. Softness, color inconsistencies, saturation mishaps, transparent animation elements (watch closely any time Roger or Jessica walk in front of Eddie's windows and note the office blinds are visible through the characters), uneven grain, live-action/animation seams and other undesirables abound whenever animated characters are on screen. And yet almost every instance is a product of the original photography and visual effects, nothing more. Even then, none of it amounts to much of a distraction, unless you're the sort who expects every then-cutting edge 25-year-old film to look as if it rolled off the studio lot yesterday. No, the only real issue that haunts the film sticks to the shadows. Literally. At-times severe crush, macroblocking, noise and blooming render the shadows a full-fledged devil's playground (keep your eyes peeled when Eddie visits the lounge where Betty Boop works). More disconcerting is the fact that the deepest blacks sometimes exhibit a red or purple tint, leaving darker nighttime sequences worse for the wear.

That said, the rest of Disney's presentation is more than commendable. Impressive even. Colors are generally pleasing, primaries have nice punch (particularly in Toontown), skintones are satisfying on the whole, grain is intact, contrast is effective and filmic, and detail is often quite rewarding. Softness aside, a number of closeups and midrange shots steal the show thanks to clean edges, well-resolved fine textures and suitably revealing clarity, and very few scenes suffer from crippling old age. The encode is solid too, without any major artifacting, banding, aliasing or shimmering, other than everything I mentioned earlier. Could the image be improved? Yes, but only through a bit of tinkering and revising. If the animated characters were given a spit shine and a fresh coat of digital paint, and the film were then restored to match, many of the inherent issues would be significantly reduced or eliminated altogether. It would be an extensive and expensive undertaking, though, and would require Zemeckis' direct involvement to even be considered a legitimate overhaul. Still, such revisionism isn't always what it's cracked up to be. I'd rather have Roger Rabbit as is -- imperfect but faithful -- than to risk a studio dolling it up for a night out on the 21st century town. Ah well. It's safe to say Who Framed Roger Rabbit has never looked better than it does here. Fans with reasonable expectations will be pleased.


Who Framed Roger Rabbit Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While more front-heavy than newborn audiophiles will be accustomed, Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is nevertheless a playful, proficient mix with plenty to offer Roger's biggest fans. Dialogue is clean and clear, without any troubling prioritization mishaps or lost lines. Muffled voices crop up during the most chaotic sequences (Eddie's battle with the weasels for one), but that's part and parcel to the film's late-80s sound design. LFE output is decidedly decent and rear speaker activity is lively enough to earn its keep, even though neither really stands out all that much. It's Alan Silvestri's score that benefits the most, and Silvestri's score that takes full advantage of the soundfield. All in all, Who Framed Roger Rabbit sounds great... if, that is, you approach Disney's lossless track with the same conservative expectations that should be afforded to the disc's video transfer.
