The Japanese R2 of Black Hawk Down has a full bitrate DTS track, and I've heard it has excellent PQ as well.

Why would Heat never get a DTS track in the U.S?

Because it's a Warner title.

That makes no sense to myself. Warner has put out some great DTS releases I think. Also, they didn't advertise it like they should. A little picture of DTS at the bottom just doesn't cut it. I wonder if there will be a new cut of Heat if/when it is being rereleased. I'm sure this version has sold well. Thanks

Yes but unfortunately they go by those sales numbers (the suits) when deciding future releases I'd say The Matrix is the only film in their catalog that stands a chance.

The Warner chat coming up in April sounds like a good time for us to let them know that we would like to see the above titles with DTS.

Also the Scandinavian release of BHD distributed by SF has a DTS track that sounds amazing. Not that impressed with the picture quality though...

Actually it's half-rate... but still sounds great.

What is the picture quality like on that Japanese R2 version? Is it anamorphic? Is it a good transfer? Also, Is Japanese R2 NTSC or PAL, sorry can't remember. Thanks!

Zack, I've not seen the r1 version of BHD to compare... but the Japanese release is anamorphic and looks great.
