Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

If you thought The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection looked great on DVD—and it does—just wait until you see the series in glorious high definition, with each entry granted a gorgeous 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. I know what some of you are probably thinking: Fourteen films spread across only five discs? Keep in mind, however, that the films are only about an hour long apiece. If the three-hour-plus extended cut of Avatar can look great on a single 50 GB disc, so can three of these 1.33:1-framed black and white B-movies. For the record, I didn't notice any significant encode or compression issues. While digital noise is present in small doses, banding is almost entirely absent, and there are only a few instances of moiré-like shimmer on certain fine patterns. (Like the tight threading on a herringbone suit.) Obviously, the quality of the transfers depends largely on the quality of the source materials, and although there are the expected flecks and specks and minor scratches, few of the films demonstrate any major damage. Mild brightness flickering? Sure. Occasional staining? Yes. But nothing overtly distracting. The UCLA Film and Television Archive did a terrific job on these restorations, sometimes working with less-than-ideal prints. (For a few of the Universal films, 16mm materials were used to replace lost 35mm footage of the title sequences, and here you'll notice the picture is slightly windowboxed to preserve uniformity.)

Clarity varies somewhat between films—The Pearl of Death looks best, in my opinion—but fine detail is almost always visible, and usually impressively so. Facial texture, the intricacies of costumes—especially Holmes' suits—and close-ups of props are all rendered with satisfying sharpness. This is all accomplished without any hint of edge enhancement. There are a few shots in the Fox films—which weren't restored by UCLA—that seem to exhibit slight symptoms of noise reduction, but by and large grain looks healthy and natural. Likewise, black levels are deep, whites are bright without seeming overblown, and the image has a definite sense of depth. Readers will know it's certainly a good thing when I mention that these transfers reminded me a lot of the ones that Image Entertainment has been putting out for the Twilight Zone re-releases. There's no doubt that this new Blu-ray set represents the best possible way to watch these movies. No complaints here!


Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Each film in the series is presented with an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 track, and the results are uniformly strong. Obviously, only so much can be done with the dated audio elements, but there's nothing here that will encumber your viewing experience. A few minor crackles aside, these tracks are actually quite clean and clear, with no significant hissing, muffling, or background noise. The theme song that plays over the opening credits for each film sounds wonderful—full and ominous—and the individual scores retain this sense of dynamic breadth. There's little of the tinny-ness you often associate with mid-century audio. Dialogue throughout the series is always balanced, unobscured, and easy to understand. MPI has provided English subtitles for all 14 features.
