    well, if they keep the French and Spanish 5.1, sure won't be space enough.
    the way they did Unbreakable, anything is possible [​IMG]

    "Maybe, but I wouldn't count on DTS unless the film is spread over two discs. With over a three-hour running time, there may not be enough space for both DD and DTS on a single disc."
    If you have THE THIN RED LINE DTS DVD,you will know whether can they(DISNEY mastering team) squeeze in 3hrs++ PEARL HARBOUR into a dual layer disc.
    THIN RED LINE DTS 5.1 is in full bit rate too!
    FRENCH subtitles yes.Full 5.1 audio...no.Minus any animated menus too!

    I dont see how it would be so hard. Just put the DD 5.1 and dts 5.1 on the first disc. All the extras go on the second disc. Its not that hard. Ive seen it done before. Im pretty sure there would be room for a commentary too.
    I love this movie and I dont want it without DTS !!!!!
    Even if it isnt ill still get it. [​IMG]
    In this dts with 3+ hour movies, who else wants Paramount to redo the Titanic DVD? Anamorphic is must of course. But damnit, I want my DTS!!!

    smells fishy already....... argh!
    I see..... artefacts, ringings, compression blocks because they will put again 4 discrete tracks to satisfy all......... I wish they'd do a superbit editon on this one, pure. [​IMG]

    There is a DTS release of DANCES WITH WOLVES in a dual layer disc,only that i can't remember is it from R4 or R2.
    As i had mentioned,more space can be created if certain features are sacrificed on the first disc.One of such feature is the space taking FULL 5.1 audio of another language.Subtitles is much more better than a full 5.1 audio of this paticullar language.
    Animated menus...i believe is one of the items that takes up disc space too.How much i don't know,hope that somebody can enlighten me!

    THIN RED LINE was not and it has a stunning picture, while being FULL RATE dts.
    if they put the french and spanish track too, they can't do it PROPERLY. if they don't, fine!!!!!
    there is a difference between truth and what we are made believe to......

    With FOX as a trend setter and leader of DTS DVD release,other studio should take note of FOX's effort and final product.
    THIN RED LINE is a very good example for all.
    So there is no excuse(still,it will have to depend on the studios' DVD release team to decide) for other studio not to release what most consumers wants and interested since a best swimmer had jump into the pool.
    There is no need for a full bit rate for all DTS release.So PARAMOUNT,DISNEY and other studios can have no worry that DTS will degrade their releases.
    PARAMOUNT-TITANIC-195mins
    PARAMOUNT-BRAVEHEART-177mins(pls correct me if i'm wrong of the running time)
    TOUCHSTONE-PEARL HARBOR-180mins(correct me if i'm wrong again)
    COLUMBIA-PATRIOT-170mins
    MGM/ORION-DANCES WITH WOLVES-180mins
    WARNER-HEAT-170mins
    ...and others more.
    "Hey how about DTS ES!"
    DTSES or DDEX is possible if the back channel is not a discrete center back track...i mean 6.1 channel audio in the release.Matrix rear is more than enough.

    It's sure to have a Michael Bay commentary in which Mr. Bay comments for two-and-a-half-hours on what a fine director Michael Bay is and that he can't understand why he is so maligned by press and audiences alike. Oh, and a documentary in which Mr. Bay comments for a half-hour more on what a fine director Michael Bay is and that he can't understand why...etc.

    December 7th would be a great day to release it, but that's a Friday. I think Artisan released The Blair Witch Project on a Friday, so anything is possible.
