    Now, before I start off, I want to say that I enjoyed Spider-Man, and am not bashing the DVD, but simply saying how I think the current DVD should be improved apon.

    Tell me if any of you agree:

    DISC 1:
    -The Movie in Anamorphic Widescreen
    -Dobly Digital 5.1
    -DTS track
    (Leave out the commentary {hey, it wasn't a big deal} and other music videos and TV spots and crap so you can fit a DTA track)

    DISC 2:
    -The Making of Spider-Man: Hour Long Doc about the entire filming/effects/casting process, without a cheesy voice over
    -At least 3 deleted scenes
    -Creator Profiles: Including the Sam Raimi, Danny Elfman profiles, along with Stan Lee, Producer, David Koepp.
    -Leave in the "Mythology of the 21st Century Doc"
    -Leave in the Rogues/Loves of P.P files
    -Leave in Screen Tests

    Yeah, I believe you'll get your wish, or very close to it anyway, when the Superbit edition is released. It will have a DTS track and the commentary will probably be eliminated.

    As a sidenote, when I bought Spider-man a few weeks ago I had my Sony VVEGA and it looked sweet, however I just got a new 48" HDTV and have been calibrating like a madman all week, but Spider-man is pretty sub par on it, especially considering the studio the film came from. Hopefully the Superbit will solve the problem, i'm confident that it will though.

    I'm funny in ways like this, but I'd actually rather have a commentary than a duplicate of the Dolby Digital track in a less-compressed audio format.

    John,

    It's amazing what a larger screen display will show. I have a 61" ISF'd TV and all the flaws are magnified. However, you know just how good a transfer really is when it looks nearly perfect on such a screen size.

    I know what you mean Dave, 'SW EP II' looks just drop dead gorgeous on it! [​IMG] It's also my first foray into progressive scan as well and I just love what that does for non-anamorphic material too. [​IMG]
