In The Sitter, Noah (Hill), the suburban slacker, takes a sitter job. When he's watching the neighbor's three challenging kids he gets a booty call from his girlfriend in the Big Apple. To hook up with her, Noah takes to the streets, but his urban adventure spins out of control as he finds himself on the run from a maniacal drug lord. (Gary Reber)

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture is vibrant throughout, with a vivid, saturated color palette. Colors pop with appealing intensity, yet fleshtones are perfectly natural in hue. Contrast is well balanced with deep, solid blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Resolution reveals fine detail, especially during close-ups of facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. The picture is sharp and clear throughout. This is a brightly vivid picture that is pleasing to experience. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is vibrant, with a mixture of music styles that envelop the soundfield. Atmospherics and sound effects are dimensional, with an aggressive surround presence. Dialogue is intelligible and effectively integrated spatially. Surround envelopment is almost constant, for an engaging holosonic® experience. Deep bass is aggressive but provides a natural low-frequency foundation. This is a fun soundtrack that is energized from start to finish. (Gary Reber)
