I just received my $5.00 Widescreen-DTS dvd and it is much worse than I expected, besides some old DTS movie trailers (some that look like crap)and some sort of outdated tittle information, there's not much to talk about. I expected at least a couple of good DTS trailers....NOOOOOO you get the OOOOOOLD... Dts trailer at the introduction of the disc that sounds well, Old and harsh. One thing is sure though, No more $5.00 checks for WS.

The dvd is "The ultimate DTS-WideScreen dvd movie guide" with accentuation on the word ULTIMATE.
I expected a couple of DTS trailers but is all DTS "movie" trailers that I admit sound good but some trailers like Jurassic Park look really bad and when you try to play the Fantasia 2000 trailer from the tittle description section, is just impossible to do it since you are not allowed to move the arrow to do so. I thought it would be better(good), maybe some people will like it.

Luis, where did you get this disc from? The title you gave does not make it clear. A disc like this usually gets at least a little mention here.

It's a DVD that Widescreen Review magazine is advertising for $4.95 (I think that's the price).

I have it too, but it's nothing great. I'm glad I paid only $5 for it.

I've updated the thread's title to reflect the disc's actual name.

Also, I've edited out some of the original language. Please don't include profanity in a thread's title.

I think this was a great addition to my collection, especially since I paid a whopping $0.00 Posted Image

Mine is a piece of garbage, since I ordered it in August and never got it! They never charged me for it, so I just put in another order and we'll see what happens.

The Lost world trailer on the disc almost made the disc worth it. It has some great sound and will scare the pants right off ya!
