    That's odd since DVDFile lists the following tracks:

    English DD 5.1
    French DD 5.1
    English DTS 5.1

    There should be no need to add or eliminate anything for the Canadian version. [​IMG]

    Hah! Alliance strikes again. Good thing I'm getting mine in the states (as I always do regarding Miramax releases). AA will never see another penny from me![​IMG]

    That's really tight if it's true.

    I mean I hate Alliance, but this is just stupid, even for them.

    To all fellow Canadians, I have seen the Alliance DVD SET ....and there is no DTS on it. Guess I will go south on July 1st and pick up a Miramax copy.

    I have a copy here, although the packaging doesn't indicate DTS, the set up menu does. *PHEW*

    I will check though at home to be sure. No reason why it shouldn't have DTS. It's the same edition (specs etc).

    Alliance is often sloppy on their packaging [​IMG]

    Play the dts track, just in case AA was sloppy with the menu, and careful with the package!

    Though I prefer dts, I can live without it, but I just get annoyed with AA when they leave out features for no apparent reason. With the movie on 2 discs, there's no excuse.

    Is the Alliance version 2 discs.
    I might forgoe the DTS to get the movie on 1 disc.

    FWIW, the info I got today says the Canadian version has the movie spread over 2 discs, and has dts.

    You know, *most* times the Alliance releases are the same as the U.S. versions, except for non-U.S. films where I suppose there are some feature licensing issues.

    ^ yeah, a good way to see if Alliance changed anything is to put the disc in and see if the Alliance intro pops up. Most of the time, they don't even touch the disc itself, only the disc art.

    I wonder how many people didn't finish reading the whole thread and cancelled their CDN version...

    I liked the previous cover better which had the New York skyline cut out of an American flag. However, this applies to both the US and Canadian version, so Alliance is not to blame.

    However, I still hate Alliance.

    ^ yeah, the DTS track is there. Watched it Monday. I think it's identical to the US version since they didn't add the Alliance intro onto the actual disc itself.

    If you need a 2nd verification, I too can assure you that it has DTS. Also, no Alliance intro.
