The Grinch is reinvented again in the new feature film produced by Illumination Studios, the company that brought us the Minions of Despicable Me and the animals of The Secret Life of Pets.
The Production: 3.5/5
3D Rating: 4.5/5
Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch appears on blu-ray with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack by default. The Dolby Atmos video is all-encompassing but seems limited in its use of directional cues. The music selections of Christmas tunes and the score created by Danny Elfman are served well in this sound mix, and the subwoofer provides some deep bass rumbles when appropriate. There are no perceptible flaws in the sound mix, but at the same time, it does not necessarily rise to demo level. The inclusion of Dolby Atmos on a 3D release is nothing to be sneezed at, said the Sneezle, but this will probably not be the film you select to show off the range of audio in your home theater.
Special Features: 4.5/5
