    Sadly, I don't think either does. DD 5.1 is what we get.

    If the U.S. doesn't get DTS tracks, you can bet the Canadian discs won't either.

    Alliance rarely ever improves upon the U.S. releases.

    In fact, many times they've gone out of their way to make the discs worse for Canadians.

    Now I'm worried.

    According to those websites, the Canadian version will have 3 tracks...English DTS 5.1, English DD 5.1 and French DD 5.1.

    From what I can see, the U.S. version only has English DD 5.1.

    I'm concerned that with 3 - 5.1 tracks, and with Alliance's track record - the video quality will suffer.

    To be realistic, Pulp Fiction has so little going on in the surrounds most of the time that DD encoding (which allocates extra bits to active channels when others go inactive) is extremely efficient. I would just as soon have the DTS bits allocated to the video on this one. It's certainly not a dealbreaker for me either way.

    On a related note, does anyone release more confusing and incomplete specs to retailers and media than Buena Vista home video?

    Regards,

    Well, I currently have the DTS laserdisc of Jackie Brown, and its wonderful! I have no intention of "downgrading" if the DVD does not have this excellent track.

    I was only talking about Pulp Fiction. Jackie Brown has a more active soundtrack. Even if Jackie Brown does have the DTS track, it will likely be a "downgrade" from the laserdisc at half bitrate. The upgrade to anamorphic video might help to mitigate that, though. [​IMG]

    Considering BV's track record with press releases, the US versions of JB and PF could end up having DTS tracks. If I recall correctly, both Nightmare Before Christmas CE and The Crow CE had no DTS listed in the press releases, and when the DVD's came out (or advanced reviews) fans were pleasantly surprised.

    I won't get my hopes up, but it would be great!

    I can confirm that the both Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown will have a DTS track. A UK retailer has just received their copies of these titles (US versions), and upon having looked at the back cover they confirmed to me that they do indeed carry DTS.

    I'd love to see that ad as well, because if it does indeed carry both a French and English soundtrack, it would possibly be subject to bilingual packaging.

    Sorry for the delay in scanning it in. I'll have it posted by Saturday. Of course by then, it will probably not be needed but I'll do it anyway.
