Video Quality

Dune is quite a spectacle, and Warner Bros.' stunning 2160p transfer does a bang-up job of bringing its challenging visuals to the small screen. Although fans of its IMAX presentation will be disappointed to learn that both this disc and the Blu-ray do not feature a shifting aspect ratio, the straight 2.39:1 framing nicely suits Dune's numerous ultra-wide landscapes and cavernous interiors, where distant figures are set against monolith-like structures that provide quite a striking contrast. Fine detail and textures are uniformly excellent from start to finish, allowing fans to appreciate Dune's outstanding production design and location footage, which takes a few of its characters over craggy stone hills and across the intimidating sands of a vast, expansive desert. Visual effects are integrated very well into the picture, from twinkling spice particles to holographic imagery and pulsating, color-coded "shield" effects, as well as practical action sequences featuring massive explosions, hand-to-hand combat, and sleek ornithopters. As a whole, the 4K transfer offers a rich and seamless atmosphere that allows viewers to get lost in Dune's expansive world, delivering a dense, refined, and more immediately impressive image that will play exceptionally well on larger displays.

Fine detail aside, the most immediately striking difference between this disc and its Blu-ray counterpart (aside from the 4K's obviously tighter and trouble-free video compression) is its tasteful use of HDR enhancement that highlights the work of colorist David Cole and his team; from otherworldly lighting schemes to the glowing blue eyes of the Fremen, Dune's stunning use of color contrast gives it a truly unique appearance and the 4K presentation captures it perfectly. Without question, this is a standout release and already on the short list for 2022's best-looking discs.

Audio Quality

Equally impressive is the default Dolby Atmos sound mix which, as always, unfolds to Dolby TrueHD 7.1 if you are not equipped for the newer format. Dune's massive visuals are paired perfectly with what can only be described as a purely enveloping sound field, one that places viewers squarely in the middle of the action where all of its cavernous echoes, staggering depth, sweeping surround pans, thunderous low frequencies, and well-balanced conversations can be fully appreciated. It's perhaps mixed a little "hot" in comparison with similar-scoped Atmos presentations... but if you're at all familiar with Villeneuve's previous sci-fi films linked above (or anything else from Legendary Pictures), you should know more or less what to expect here. Speech is exceptionally clean and crisp, Hans Zimmer's original score heavily occupies most of the surround and rear channels, and background effects -- none more so than the mid-film invasion and its brutal aftermath -- often flow freely through Atmos' height channels, which also get plenty of use via expansive room echoes and other location-specific elements. Overall, it's a powerhouse presentation that, when adjusted ever-so-slightly for volume, offers a pitch-perfect accompaniment to Dune's stunning visuals.
