Red Vs. Blue: Season 14 (2016/Flatiron Blu-ray w/DVD)

Picture: B & C Sound: C+ & C Extras: A Episodes: B+

After 13 seasons of Red Vs. Blue, our favorite Spartans in multi-color suits have somehow survived countless near deaths, world ending missions and each other. But now, instead of continuing their epic battle across the galaxy, Red vs. Blue: Season 14 is an anthology about various short stories, back stories, meta stories across the multi-verse of the Halo universe.

Red Vs. Blue: Season 14 (2016) is thus a homage to the entire halo series, the game, it's creators, it's players and it's fans. From 2D animation, 3D animations, claymation animation, to live action acting, this season is made up of various episodes by various artists. Like most of the series it is about how sometimes there is no comparison/unstoppable force more than dumb luck, watch as the characters from Halo survive the Halo-verse to the real life-verse.

This was a Halo improv to the Halo series, based off the hit video game, the series is like watching a bunch of idiots running through a PvP/gaming world and somehow saving the universe by the end of the day (and from themselves). The series often makes wise cracks and jokes about themselves, each other and their enemies, it constantly breaks the 2nd, 3rd, and even the 4th wall of the series. But the more amusing of the episodes include Halo the musical, animation, and even live action episodes.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital high definition image is again a little rough as expected and additionally choppy considering the varied sources, while the anamorphically enhanced DVD is, still of course, weaker. The sound this time on the Blu-ray is again a DTS-HD (MA) Master Audio 5.1 lossless mix also a little better than the last volume, but the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 on the DVD remains weaker too. Extras includes Deux Ex Machinima, Building Blocks of RvB, Making a Mercenary, Immersion, Rocket Jump BTS, Red vs. Crew and trailers.
