Everything Everywhere All at Once

Overview -

Starring Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu and James Hong, the filmmaking duo Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan's Everything Everywhere All at Once is a bizarrely entertaining and ingeniously heartfelt surprise fashioning several genres, wildly creative visuals and deeply complex ideas into a harmoniously poignant, heart-warming portrait of one person's existential crisis. The everything bagel threatens the Blu-ray multiverse with an awesome, near-reference audio and video presentation but a small selection of bonuses. The overall HD package is nonetheless Highly-Recommended.

Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh), a flustered immigrant mother, is contacted from a parallel universe and told that only she can save the world. The unlikely hero must learn to channel her newfound powers and fight through the splintering timelines of the multiverse to save her home, her family, and herself in this big-hearted and irreverent adventure. With Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., James Hong, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Lionsgate Home Entertainment and A24 bring Everything Everywhere All at Once to Blu-ray with a flyer for a Digital HD Copy. The dual-layered Region A locked, BD50 disc is housed inside the standard blue, eco-vortex case with a glossy slipcover. At startup, the disc goes straight to a static menu screen with the usual options and music playing in the background.

Video Review

Ranking:

The everything bagel threatens the Blu-ray multiverse with a gorgeous 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode. Shot on the Arri Alexa digital cameras, the freshly-minted transfer arrives with sharp definition and details, exposing every nook and cranny of the Wang laundromat and the individual objects of the IRS offices. A few of the digital effects and the fast-paced action are not always as discrete, but overall, the video is in outstanding shape. The photography has a slightly low-key contrast to match Evelyn's melancholic state of mind, but whites are nonetheless clean and crisp throughout. The stylized cinematography also affects the palette a bit, mostly limited to earth tones, tans and warm yellows. Still, the action visuals burst with a richly-saturated array of primaries and secondary hues, especially whenever Jobu Tupaki makes an appearance. All the while, black levels are rich and accurate, providing the alternating aspect ratios, switching between 1.85:1, 2.00:1 and 2.39:1, with appreciable dimensionality. (Video Rating: 92/100)

Audio Review

Ranking:

The absurdist fantasy drama verse-jumps to home theaters with the same near-reference Dolby Atmos soundtrack enjoyed on the 4K Ultra HD edition. For a more in-depth take on the audio quality, you can read our review of the 4K Ultra HD HERE. (Dolby Atmos Audio Rating: 92/100)

In centering their plot around the day in the life of a dissatisfied Evelyn, they balance several genres, wildly creative visuals and deeply complex ideas into a harmoniously poignant, heart-warming portrait of one person's existential crisis. The everything bagel threatens the Blu-ray multiverse with a gorgeous HD video presentation and an absurdly fantastic Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Although the bonus material could be a bit meatier, the overall package is nonetheless highly-recommended
