Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Babs looks great in high-def – A Star Is Born comes to Blu-ray with a totally finessed 1.78:1 1080p transfer. There are maybe a handful of instances of dirt and grime on the transfer print utilized, but detail quality is overall quite strong, and color accuracy seems authentic and dynamic. Compression artifacting isn’t a major issue, either, and elements of aliasing and banding only pop up every now and again.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
Unfortunately, the DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix included on this disc doesn’t do the movie many favors. The film’s musical sequences have a firm, steady feel to them, but there’s not much stability here – I found myself hitting my volume remote buttons quite often. Dialogue is clear, for the most part, and effects and atmospherics appear naturally. Definitely not sensational, but this lossless track captures the film just fine.
Polish Dolby Digital 2.0 and French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Czech Dolby Digital 1.0 tracks are included, as are English SDH, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German SDH, Italian SDH, Czech, Korean, and Polish subtitles.
