    I just got done watching the True LiesDVD that I bought today to replace my aging VHS copy (I know a special edition is coming soon but couldn't hold out much longer) and I would like to comment on the nice rear surround action I heard. The disc is not demo material to demo your system but it did sound pretty nice with lots of nice rear action. I'm very happy with my purchase.Just my .02.

    Oh, I thought you were commenting on Jamie Lee Curtis's contribution to the film... [​IMG]

    Change "Lies" to "Lays" in the subject field and you get a totally different meaning. [​IMG]

    Hehe...My mind is also in the gutter! The "nice rear action!" part threw me for a loop! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Keith, I have the laserdisc and the sound is nothing less than great. It does have a very good circumambience. I'm hanging on the LD at least until SE is released on DVD.

    I used to have it and yes, the sound was pretty good. I would consider buying it again if the audio was dts and it was a 2 disk 5 star SE.

    Yes, I thought the surround (note avoidance of word "rear") action was pretty nice as well. I'm hoping the 5-Star Edition can improve it even more!

    Anyone have a approximate release date for the 5 star True Lies and Speed? I heard April?

    I'd buy both, especially with dts as an option. I love the scene where he is escaping the chateau and the guards are after him. Great surround effects from the bullets and gunfire.

    I just want to see Jamie Lee's "rear action" in a nice, clear anamorphic transfer. [​IMG]

    ...like a 10-year old boy.
    At least that's the opinion expressed in the movie. [​IMG]
