I would like to hear anyone's input on the transfer of Universal's Sensuround movies. I just purchased the special edition of MIDWAY dvd, and even though it has a 1.1 soundtrack, the .1 being for the bass track, I was surprised that it really didn't kick much. The laserdisc widescreen edition release had an actual feel of sensurround, the dvd lacked totally. Of course the Goodtimes EARTHQUAKE release was terrible. Rollercoaster is just as bad, and I havn't viewed the Galactica disc, though I see that has a 1.1 soundtrack too.

I recently bought, on Ebay, the Brazilian edition of EARTHQUAKE on dvd (which is also encoded to play on region 1 players), released last year by Universal. Now this dvd is great! Why isn't it out here? It is totally remastered in picture and sound, and is one great transfer, and has a bass track that is very strong, obviously mastered into the mix were the bass signals used in Sensurround, though I am sure at a higher frequency. The great John Williams score was remastered too...If you like Earthquake, find this one somehow.

Classics on Blu-ray is what it is all about!
