Now this an issue, and that is the Dolby Stereo Digital soundtrack, which version of the film do I prefer, the region 2 DVD 1997-1999 not this newer version, it’s plagued with problems like cutting the low end of the fronts, when the dolphins leap out of the water chapter 11, with James Horner’s wonderful score, and mixed superbly by Shawn Murphy, however this one falls flat on its face.

Chapter 30, after the watertight doors have been sealed, the alarm bell ringing on the split-surrounds is lot clearer hear, but that just simple re-mixing, if it ain’t broken, then why fix it, with the 1997-1999 version the alarm bell is slightly softer but only the frequency of the sound, but if I wanted the 1997-1999 version to have a clearer sound, on chapter16, that’s no problem as I can work ways around that.

If you’re interested in knowing what technique I would employ to make this work better, and at the same time, tame the dynamics, oh I think the cat is out of the bag.

I hate re-mixes, oh God help us.
