Why is the Dolby Digital version of this DVD selling SO SO SO much better at Amazon.com than the DTS version? The Dolby Digital version ranks at 35 while the DTS version ranks at 2,120!

because they ct out special features to make room for the DTS and this isn't exactly a sound demo movie.

Most of the world doesn't care about DTS. Those who do are vocal, but they're a minority.

I disagree, the sound effects/music for this movie are excellent. Also, the ambient sounds in various scenes is top notch and makes great use of the surrounds. I have both versions and while the DTS version is better I feel, the Dolby version is still great.

I guess it depends on who you ask. I have heard many people say that the DD and the DTS are about the same in quality. Also take into consideration that many people don't even know that two different versions exist.

I went DD because I wanted the extra featurette, and my setup doesnt' support dts. Made it an easy decision.
