Philadelphia Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Philadelphia is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. A lot of this film takes place in dark interior spaces, and this high definition presentation can only do so much with elements that don't intrinsically offer much shadow detail to begin with. Similarly, much of the film is bathed in brown tones, which means there aren't a lot of bright primary colors which allow the transfer to really pop in a traditional "wow" manner. With that understanding, this presentation looks quite good, with admirable fine object detail, and a nicely saturated, if usually quite muted, palette. When the film ventures out of doors or we get brightly lit daytime scenes, things improve markedly. There's a very fine layer of grain evident throughout this presentation. There are a couple of strange anomalies that I frankly had never noticed before in previous home video incarnations, which may simply be due to the increased resolution of the Blu-ray. The most noticeable of these is a kind of weird reflection that takes place in the library scene when the camera pans to the library worker asking Beckett to move. It almost looks like the camera was shooting through a Plexiglas window for some reason. It's not traditional lens flare (at least like any lens flare I've ever seen).


Philadelphia Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Philadelphia's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 springs mostly to life in its two beautiful bookending songs as well as in some of the busy Philadelphia cityscape sequences. Otherwise, dialogue tends to be anchored in the front channels, though occasionally there are some smart uses of the surrounds to indicate Beckett's declining health (and perhaps mental) state, including neatly muffled noises that surround him in the trial's climactic moment. Fidelity is very good, but dynamic range is fairly limited.
