LEGENDS OF THE FALL. This movie with the beautiful cinematography just cries out for a higher resolution transfer and the score just cries out for DTS!!!

How about Last Action Hero, Das Boot, Leon, Lawrence of Arabia, or Arlington Road.

Last Action Hero and Das Boot are just screaming for the treatment, as is Leon. Lawrence would just be a nice bonus.

There are other titles that should get the treatment, like Cliffhanger, Charlie's Angels, The One, and others.

Don't forget Jorg Buttgereit's 1987 classic Nekromantik
"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

I'd like to see a Superbit Deluxe of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. The second disc would feature a commentary from Hironobu Sakaguchi, who provided one on the Spiritual Edition in Japan.

Actually, in my opinion, I would say that Lawrence of Arabia screams out for a Superbit transfer louder than any of the others!

Of course, thats just my opinion!

I scream for any Das Boot that's not a flipper.

And I'll take the superbit for First Knight since it is a favourite of mine.

How bout a superbit 'A Knights Tale' ? Great audio/video that would benefit from higher bitrate and DTS.

Superbit DVDs have just the movie, spartan menus, and dts & Dolby Digital sound options.

The only Superbit Deluxe titles are The Mask of Zorro & Snatch hitting on September 17th, 2002 along with Panic Room: Superbit.

LOL Posted Image Well, yes, I am aware of the superbit concept.

I guess the only question was if it were to be a SB deluxe or not.. which you answered. Thanks again Posted Image

I dont want superbits of titles that are only about a year old or so, like Mask Of Zorro(remember the special edition last August) or Knight's Tale. I want superbits of films they screwed up a little bit on the first time.

Here is another few nice superbit ideas.
Bridge on the River Kwai, Ghostbusters, Starman.

Hey Rob, I found a used copy of LOA for 17.99 at Hastings. Is it worth a blind purchase? I generally love most of the "classics."
