    It's strange that te Special Edition DTS track will be only 5.1 when the DD track is 5.1 EX.

    Doesn't that mean the DTS track will be matrix since its an EX track? [​IMG]

    This is a little OT, but what the heck...why did the DVDFile review refer to Atlantis as "ill-fated"? I didn't see it in the theater; is it a bad movie?

    DVDFile is not a very pro-Disney site.

    Scott,
    I think dvdfile meant ill-fated at the box office. As far as I'm aware it pretty much bombed (at least compared to other animated Disney titles). I haven't seen the movie yet (still hasn't started here in Germany), so I can't wait to get the 2 disc set.

    Or they could be talking about Atlantis itself. It did end up destroyed after all! [​IMG]

    Atlantis made a decent showing at the box-office, but was apparently very expensive to produce. It was kind of in the same boat as Dinosaur & Emperor's New Groove. I'm sure that they have all wound up in the black due to merchandising, video, etc., but they were not runaway successes like Toy Story 2 or even Tarzan.
    I though Atlantis was pretty entertaining although it stumbles somewhat through its final act. It was strange how many similarities it shared with the plot of Tian AE, but I found Atlantis to be overall a more enjoyable film.
    Regards,
