    Where can I find a listing of non-region 1 DVDs that feature a dts track? I'm looking specifically for Dark City and Stargate.
    The search function was down, so I apologize if this has been discussed in another thread.

    As for the bad rap about the characters--hey, I've seen space operas that put their emphasis on human personalities and relationships. They're called "Star Trek" movies. Give me transparent underwater cities and vast hollow senatorial spheres any day. --Roger Ebert on The Phantom Menace

    John,
    Thanks for those awesome links! I didn't even think of checking dts online.
    Where is the best place to purchase the region 2 Dark City?

    John, than you again for the information, mate! Are there any other region 2 dts DVDs that you recommend? I can't wait to get my hands on Dark City. It's one of my favorite movies.

    Hi Tom,
    Recently I've enjoyed the French: Sleepy Hollow, the German: Stargate and the UK: Universal Soldier. All excellent dts and 16x9.
    On Stargate some people have commented that the extra scenes of the director's cut are of a lower quality, so don't blend in perfectly. I personally didn't find this a problem and don't think I would notice unless specifically looking out. The very expensive Japanese disc is full bit rate but not the director's cut so the German one has to be the one to go for IMO.
    Universal Soldier: the best it's ever sounded and appeared. Not listened to the commentary yet.
    Sleepy Hollow: the French really do some excellent transfers and of course the sound only improves on something that was already excellent.
    And of course there's region 4 with their dts collector's edition of The Mummy Returns, reviewed here:

    Happy Listening,
    John
