Elf: Infinifilm Edition DVD Review
PicturePresented in 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer and a 1.33:1 full frame version. For this review we concentrated on the 1.85:1 transfer. Everything looks very good with a nice sharpness to the image and colours are well saturated with solid blacks and some good shadow detail. There were a few problems with slight pixelation issues and edge enhancement seen now and again.
SoundThe sound mix is lively if not entirely enveloping with a nice dynamic range. Dialogue is intelligible and easily followed with a nice wide front soundstage. Overall for a comedy movie the audio is lively and well produced.
ExtrasThe usual infinifilm features are present here with quite a healthy amount of supplemental features to wade through. The usual commentary track is entertaining and informative, we are treated to a few extended/deleted scenes which are rather entertaining, a behind the scenes feature with Will Ferrell which is extensive and above the usual press kit standard. Rounding off the extras are games, DVD content and a feature on the music from the movie.
VerdictSeasonal fun without the usual schmaltz and full of belly laughs, the DVD presentation is also very good. Recommended.
Suggested retail price when reviewed: £29.98
