    Columbia, please release more Superbit titles, if not, please release more titles with DTS. It looks like there is more Superbit titles in other regions more specifically Japan. Japan has more and more titles coming in the Superbit Series, but why not here? If anyone can provide some information and insight, please post it.

    Thank you,
    RF

    Japan even has a Superbit edition of JURASSIC PARK, which in this country is Universal and will never see such a release.

    They're too busy reissuing all their old titles in pan and scan.

    There will never be a Pan/Scan superbit title. The Superbit rules are as follows:

    Original Language
    Original Aspect Ratio
    DD and DTS

    Well I was looking at the back cover for the "Hook" Superbit and it says it has a French dubbed soundtrack, then elsewhere it says all Superbits only include the original language.
    Since they're now reissuing older dual-format discs WITHOUT the widescreen version, I expect EACH and EVERY one of those titles to have a widescreen Superbit disc released. Sure they'll be overpriced, but at least the movies will still be available.

    a color-corrected, remastered, Superbit Deluxe SE, Ultimate, Final Edition of Gilliams THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN.

    Use the Criterion and the Columbia LDs as a color reference.
    The current disc is flat, and lacklustre.

    I'd love to see a Black Hawk Down superbit. There is a lot of potential there.

    This IMO p.o.s. movie is Warner domestically, not Columbia.

    Bring on Superbit Bad Boys II. Regardless of what you may feel about the story/content of this film (which divided auds; the HTF discussion thread is "Exhibit A"), Amir Mokri's cinematography is awesome. Every other Michael Bay film has had multiple DVD releases. There's no commentary on this one so what gives? Shoulda been Superbit Deluxe from day one.
