The Eccentric Family: Complete Premium Edition

recommendation: Tier 1.0*

A recent anime series that looks outstanding in this pristine 1080P presentation. Superbly handled by NIS America, the Blu-ray is a perfect digital replication of its animation in vivid quality.

What elevates this animation is a keen eye for detail in the backgrounds and pleasing character design. The bold colors make for a splashy palette.

Dark Was the Night

recommendation: Tier 2.5*

Dark Was The Night is a RED Epic production. That entails a certain level of visual quality from the digital camera. Image Entertainment brings the sharp-looking film to Blu-ray in a perfect digital transfer. The 98-minute main feature is presented in a carefully-shot 2.40:1 aspect ratio with mannered cinematography. Encoded in fine AVC video averaging 20 Mbps, the movie devoutly adheres to a modern digital color grading commonly found in thrillers. The largely colorless presentation brings a distinctively dark tone with its teal and bluish shades.

The video itself is nearly razor-sharp with strong definition. The unfiltered digital transfer contains impressive detail outside of its darkest shots at night. It is not eye candy per se. The limited color palette lacks brighter colors. Black levels are quite good outside of one or two scenes. A hint of noise appears in them which stand out only because the rest of the film looks so clean and perfect.
