VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4½/5
Warner Bros. releases Tom & Jerry onto Blu-ray presented with a 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. Detail looks quite good throughout and colors are generally vibrant which is in keeping with the, of course, light-hearted material. There were no obvious instances of artifacting or aliasing.
The included Dolby Atmos track showcases the zany and wacky action that Tom and Jerry inflicts on the hotel with fine depth along with the clear dialogue levels coming out of the center speaker with the remainder elements, like the music/soundtrack, making use of the front and rear channels. There is also a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 track available.
