Waititi's Oscar-winning film, Jojo
(2019) lands on Blu-ray and 4K UHD disc just at the closing of awards
season. The film is pretty well done and spins the perspective of
Nazi Germany by making it more comedic and light hearted. It also
shows growth in Waititi as a filmmaker, who is certainly getting
sharper with his craft here after directing Marvel's Thor:
and the first-season finale of Star
Wars: The Mandalorian,
amongst other efforts. Here he uses clever blocking and camerawork
to tell an effective, original, and occasionally controversial story.
story centers around Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) who has been
conditioned to be in favor of the Nazi ideology and sees Adolf Hitler
as an imaginary friend (also played by Director and Actor Taika
Waititi). In the midst of his version of blind nationalism, Jojo
encounters a young Jewish girl named Inge that his mother (Scarlett
Johansson, also Oscar-nominated here) is hiding in the attic. At
first weary of one another, the two become friends and Jojo starts to
see the Nazis in a new light.
film also stars familiar faces Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson, Stephen
Merchant, Alfie Allen, and Thomasin McKenzie to name a few.
is presented in a 2160p HEVC/H.265, HDR (10; Ultra HD
Premium)-enhanced Ultra High Definition image on 4K UHD disc with
stunning HDR and a widescreen presentation of English: DTS-HD MA
(Master Audio) lossless 5.1 mix. The film is beautifully
photographed and its on full display here with even more detail seen
in the HDR. While I'm surprised there wasn't a 7.1 or Atmos sound
mix on the disc, the DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix works fine considering the
nature of the film. Also included is a standard 1080p Blu-ray disc
with similar visual and audio specs and a digital copy.
Scenes: "Imaginary Goring", "Little Piggies", and
"Adolf Dies Again"
