Vs. Blue: Season 14 (2016/Flatiron Blu-ray w/DVD)
B & C Sound: C+ & C Extras: A Episodes: B+
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.
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.
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.
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.
