    I hope that you do a review on this and compare it to the older version. All I can tell is that the new one will have a dts track and if its not a good track then I will just be happy with the original. However, If it gets a good review then I just might have to double dip on this one. Thanks

    Brent,

    I have washed my hands of Superbit reviews.

    My past reviews have not been favorable and
    too many members were getting upset over the
    fact that I was putting down the format.

    I would rather have those reviews entrusted
    to people with more elaborate Home Theater setups
    (mainly front projectors) who can more clearly
    see the difference in Superbit over its standard
    counterpart.

    By the way, I loved Snatch, so it's an opportunity
    for a review I am going to greatly miss.

    Thanks for asking.

    It's too bad you have to let other people dictate what dvd's you review on your own forum, Ron. I was looking forward to your review on the superbit Snatch because I don't own the first version and have never seen the movie.

    John,

    I was scheduled to post a review of Pulp
    Fiction before the end of this week.

    As usual, other DVDs came in that took priority,
    mainly We Were Soldiers[/b] and Reservoir
    Dogs
    . It will be at least Wednesday until
    I can get a review up.

    As far as people dictating to me what DVDs I
    review --- they really don't. I just felt it
    was a disservice to those who enjoy Superbits
    and notice an improvement in the format to keep
    writing reviews that put it down. That's all.

    Thanks

    I didn't realize there was a superbit version of snatch being released. That's welcome news considering the shabby transfer on the first release. When is the superbit Snatch being released?

    Shabby transfer? I thought the original release was a great transfer and sound mix. Very fitting of the films style and a faithful recreation of the theatrical print.

    I too am very happy with the current disc. It looks just as I remeber it at the theater. And I consider the DD track to be one of the best I have in my collection.

    I don't think there will be a bigger improvement to the SNATCH soundtrack,with the DTS treatment.
    Throughout the whole film,dialogue comes first follows by the jazzy musics.There isn't much effects or grand score to talk or notice about...
