Dracula Untold

Very good, but not amazing. Some solid black levels (mostly). Facial details a bit lacking. Sharpness and depth reasonable but not the best. I'd hoped for just a little bit more overall.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters

recommendation: Tier 1.25*

Like most animated DC films, Justice League: Gods and Monsters looks incredible in 1080P resolution on Blu-ray. The sharp, angular line-work features some very interesting new character designs for Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman from Bruce Timm. Animated in colorful clarity with perfect black levels, the vivid animation looks fantastic. Warner Bros. provides a BD-50 for the relatively short 75-minute main feature. The adequate AVC video encode averages 17.92 Mbps. A touch of minor banding is visible in a couple of shots but the clean animation is presented in flawless condition directly from its digital HD master.

These direct-to-video efforts from WB and DC Comics usually share a range of common visual features. The traditional two-dimensional animation retains a hand-drawn appeal from the heroes’ comic book roots. Most of the attention and focus is provided towards getting the characters right. Facial detail tends to suffer a bit in comparison to theatrical animation. Animated using a digital ink-and-paint process, the perfect contrast and rich black levels make for a very appealing appearance in Hi-Def video. This particular movie has slightly tighter art than is the norm. The polished character designs fluidly move in space and backgrounds show a creative approach to the familiar locations of the DC Universe like Metropolis and Apokolips.
