Madonna: Sticky and Sweet arrives on Blu-ray with an often audacious AVC encoded image offered in 1080i and in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio- 16x9 Widescreen. There is simply no way to separate the live performance footage from the projections and other film elements thrown into the mix here, because they are blended together so seamlessly that it's often hard to tell exactly "where" you are, image wise, as the concert progresses. Colors here are astoundingly brilliant and beautifully saturated. There are several literally breathtaking moments. I was especially impressed by the Chinese triptych sort of silk screen moments in the "Rain/Here Comes the Rain Again" Medley, where a beautifully array of greens and blues were on display. But the entire concert looks really, really good, with Madonna looking downright unreal for an almost 52 year old. Every fly away hair on her blonde tresses is easily visible.
There are several different sources used here, from film to video, with a lot of CGI and other techniques employed, so be prepared for some "texture" differences to show up repeatedly. Contrast and black levels are both exceptional, and this is one concert that should delight most videophiles purely on an image quality standpoint, divorced from the actual content of those images.
You may not like all, or even some, of the music presented here, but the DTS-HD 5.1 mix, as well as the LPCM 2.0 fold down, are unbelievably strong and robust.
