Video: How Does the Disc Look?
The Sessionsgets a great video presentation here. There are maybe a handful of instances of aliasing and banding to mention on this 1.85:1 1080p transfer, but those are really the only elements of this presentation that don’t stun. Detail quality is sharp and vivid, black levels are wonderfully inky and consistent, and color accuracy seems authentic and well-defined both in terms of delicate flesh tones and deeper hues. For a recent, digitally-shot picture, one couldn’t hope for too much more.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix is also pretty strong. There’s a certain element of unevenness to the track – I found myself utilizing my volume remote five or six times during its run – but dialogue is always audible, and the movie’s musical score has a firm and robust feel to it throughout. Surrounds aren’t utilized extensively, but that is more a reality of the movie’s sound designers than any shortcomings of this lossless mix.
French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes are included, as are English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles.
