    Well ths disc was reviewed at dvdfile.com ad it was said that it was left wthout the dts track. This might have been mentioned before but I am pissed as I was looking forward to it. He des ention the DD trac is good however. Go check it out for yourself.

    The first release is barebones. There will be a special edition later.

    The Dolby Digital track was "good", eh?
    That's interesting...being that the Dolby tracks are usually terrible... [​IMG]

    It's early...just early enough to annoy me when I see the silliness from people who get pissed when a movie doesn't have a sound format that they don't know will sound better than DD anyway; and diss the movie as a result.

    Here here!

    And although I have not seen the disc, judging by CTHV discs in generally, I'll bet you this 'barebone' release will be pound for pound one of the better discs out there in terms of picture and sound.

    As Sony is one of those studios that loves to milk their customers for all they're worth, there will be a Ridley Scott approved special edition (more than likely with DTS) later on. Perhaps as a 2 disc Superbit version.

    Columbia announced the BHD SE a LONG time ago, so I don't see what the problem is. If you buy the barebones, you have no one to blame for being milked than yourself. Scott Free just couldn't finish the disc and have everything they want on there in time for a June release.

    More than likely there will be a DTS track on the SE

    I didn't see an actual review of the movie on DVDFile, instead it seemed to just be one long undeserved rag on Ridley Scott

    Brian, that's why, and this is seriously just friendly advice, before you ask a question, do a search.

    Everyone who says that DD sucks should buy or rent the Episode 1 DVD.

    Period.

    But i would take DTS over Dolby any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Depending if there is a difference between the two tracks.

    I plan on buying the first issue of BHD.

    I truly don´t mind specs or DTS.

    I imported the R3 edition and just wanted to report that the picture and DD tracks are terrific.

    Yes, it is barebones, but it was also cheap and at least this time we have been told up front that a SE is on its way.

    I am enjoying this edition but will also be eagerly awaiting the SE when it arrives, hopefully with DTS, commentary and if possible the brilliant History Channel documentary.
