Kubo and the Two Strings arrives on Blu-ray with a real looker of a 1080p transfer. The stop-motion elements shine and the care and attention to detail that the filmmakers have put on every piece -- characters but also garments and environments -- are beautifully reproduced on Blu-ray. Fabric details are the unequivocal highlight. Fine material textures, small edge frays, wear and light grime, every bit of every piece is a treasure trove of high definition goodness. Beetle's weathered and porous armor is another fine example of the transfer's readily evident clarity and the filmmakers' keen attention to detail. Broader character models and environments are stunning, too, in both complexity and consistency. Colors are terrific. The movie travels through many different environments and lighting conditions, but the palette is steadfast in its ability to perfectly recreate and accentuate finer nuanced shades as well as more broad-stoke, monochromatic elements. Whether light or dark, inside or out, abundantly colorful or more reserved, the palette always appears spot-on. Black levels are handsomely deep. Minor noise intrudes in a few shots, but this is, overall, a gorgeous presentation that does the material proud.
