Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Blu-ray review

Oct 23, 2018- Permalink

I was never a big fan of ABBA. At least that’s what I told my friends and myself, but strangely I seem to know a lot of the lyrics and find my foot tapping when they come on the radio. Maybe I have to deal with this, but the therapy can be helped by the Blu-ray release of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again: Sing-Along Edition on October 23rd, 2018.

The movie’s AVC-encoded 1080p transfer is presented in a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. The digitally shot production results in a transfer that is full of crisp details. The colour palette pops off the screen and the ocean water looks particularly beautiful. The video presentation doesn’t exhibit any compression issues and it’s a joy to look at.

On the audio side of things, your ears have a choice of English Dolby Atmos and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 soundtracks as well as Spanish and French Dolby Digital Plus 7.1 tracks. You’d expect that a musical would pay attention to the sound and your expectations will be met. The music and lyrics are crisp and clear and rich and your surround speakers will immerse you in the Greek environment so much that you’ll be checking your credit card bill for airline tickets. In addition to the music, dialogue is also clear and centred.

When it comes to extras, you won’t be disappointed, starting with a DVD copy and a digital download code. There’s a bunch of deleted and extended scenes and songs, about 46 minutes of sing-alongs which offer onscreen lyrics to help you test your vocals, and various featurettes that cover costumes, choreography and cast interviews. There are also a couple of commentary tracks.

With dazzling vistas and toe-tapping numbers presented with an excellent soundtrack, fans of the Swedish pop stars will not be upset adding Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again to their home entertainment libraries.
