Wild Africa 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Both 3D Media's 1080p/MVC-encoded 3D experience and AVC-encoded 2D presentation are a mess from start to finish, no matter the scene. The documentary's palette bobbles between washed out, modestly strong and garishly hot, with at-times undersaturated, poorly contrasted imagery followed (sometimes within the same sequence) by unsightly, hotly contrasted photography. Primaries cross extremes too, from diluted to overbearing, as do black levels, which bounce from horribly muted to oppressive. It all bears a regrettably striking resemblance to an off-label title you'd pick up on standard DVD a decade ago, or worse, something you'd stumble across late at night while channel surfing at a low-rent roadside motel. Macroblocking is common. Banding and shimmering are at play. Aliasing and ringing are present throughout. And don't even try to catalogue the pulldown anomalies, crosstalk-prone 3D shots and other random eyesores that litter the already problematic proceedings. It's as close to a lost cause as it comes.

Detail ranges from middling to smeared to downright disheartening as well, all of which makes for an at-times grueling viewing experience, regardless of whether you select the film's 2D or 3D presentation. Worse, 3D depth is a joke (I'd argue non-existent if there weren't a handful of animal close-ups that actually have a reasonably three-dimensional appearance), dimensionality is completely disappointing, and even the best of the film's 3D scenes may as well be in 2D, as flat and uninspiring as they are. The disc's only real selling point -- the 3D -- is designed solely to lure in those still eager to buy every 3D disc on the market, whatever the consequence. And that's a rapidly dwindling subset of 3D adopters, most of whom are hopefully growing wise to the tricks of the bargain 3D trade. Is there any saving grace? Anything at all? Those who've had the misfortune to purchase other 3D Media releases already know the answer: not really. Scratch that: no, not a single thing.


Wild Africa 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Wild Africa 3D includes two DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks: the first with narration and music, the second a music-only mix. Sadly, lossless or no, narration is slightly muffled and flatly implemented, dynamics are average at best, rear speaker activity is inconsequential, and the documentary's generic, barrel-bottom music barely registers. Again, the word DVD springs to mind, even though there are a few moments that exhibit some DTS-HD heft. These moments are the exception rather than the rule, though, and the tracks are serviceable at best, if I'm being generous. Ultimately, like its video encode, Wild Africa's lossless audio tracks flounder.
