I did make sure I was listening to the DTS MA track. I will likely watch this again just for the audio experience.

As there are few post on the review itself.
Anyway great write up Ralph, although I thought the story was good and perhaps worthy of a sequel , the score of 100 was well deserved and I'm sure this one was easy to give. As for PQ I can only speak on the 2D version but that was one pristine image and some of the best shadow detailing to date, the colors were rich and bold and well saturated and no trace of grain. The audio soundtrack had some of the best recorded dialog I've heard and the rest needs no comments on what easily rivals the best if not bettering them in the process.
Decent year for movies thus far and nice to see Disney can still make you believe!
Thank you for the kind words about the Sound Mix. Chris Jacobson and Myself mixed it at both Sony Pictures and my facility "The Dub Stage"
Working with Sam Raimi is the best!
We mixed it Theatrically in 7.1 and 5.1 and also in "Auro-3D 11.1" and 7.1 and 5.1 for Home Theater Blu-Ray.
It is called "Nearfield because we set up the 7.1 and 5.1 mix with speakers much closer to the mix position
and at a lower level than the Theatrical mix. We then adjust the mix to replicate what the Theatrical mix was
for watching in Blu-ray at home. It is NOT desktop speakers, it is full range near field speakers with 8" woofers and dual 12" sub.
We were very happy with the translation, lots of dynamic range yet all the
dialog and subtle stuff translated as we expected.We had all the original tracks and not just stems so we could raise or lower
any track as needed for the Nearfield mix for Blu-Ray.
Thanks again to Ralph and to you for your kind comments.Edited by dr.sound - 6/20/13 at 10:40pm
