Thumbs up Sherlock Holmes Blu-ray review

Watched Sherlock Holmes on Blu-ray this weekend. I thought this was great movie. I enjoyed Guy Ritchie's brass and idiosyncratic Holmes along with the straight laced Watson. Some of the dialogue was rapid fire, but nothing to the effect where you couldn't keep up the gist of the conversation.

And I'm going to rate the DTS HD MA soundtrack right with the upper echelon bass movies like Cloverfield, Flight of the Phoenix (Sandstorm sequence), Titan A.E., T2 Salvation, 9, and The Haunting.

This movie had thunderous LFE that was never muddy. The surrounds got a thorough workout as just the London street scenes were incredibly immersive. All of the fight scenes, especially the shipyard scene was incredible in the LFE dept. This movie was a ground pounder on my system. This movie was a sleeper. I had read reviews about it having some great bass scenes, but this movie rocked in LFE. I played it -7 below reference and it was a sonic delight. I never thought I'd find a movie that I personally would put in the same category as Cloverfield BD, but this one deserves a spot on my top 5.

Only if AVATAR would have this kind of authoritative LFE, it would have been the epitome of HD movie soundtracks. Because the surround detail in AVATAR was amazing, but the LFE was marginal at best.

And I'd like to know how they made that wicked sound effect where Holmes was firing his pistol off stage in the next room and it made my Polk surrounds sound like subwoofers. I rewound that scene a couple of times as that was very unique. Somehow the sound mixer made it sound like my subwoofer was behind the couch in that scene, which it's not.
