In my research these are the titles I've found that are encoded in EX/ES in Region 1 only;
This list is a guide to help home theater enthusiasts who want an 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound experience via DVD. The majority of the time, the EX/ES encoding isn't listed on the DVD itself and the other half of the time the EX/ES listing on DVDs is incorrect!:)
*These titles also include their SuberBit and D-Theater counterparts as well.

Troy,
Great list. You might want to separate or note the DTS-ES titles that are discrete.
I believe they are the Haunting, Se7en and Gladiator. I can't remember about Chicken Run but Terminator 2 is definitely matrix.

I believe 102 Dalmations, T2, Cast Away, Pitch Black, The Legend of Baggar Vance, and The Bone Collector were DTS-ES matrix.
The Haunting, Chicken Run, Se7en Platinum Edition, and Gladiator are DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 encoded.
The German DVD version of Sleepy Hollow was DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 as well.

The packaging on Pitch Black does not indicate it as being DD-EX. Just wondering if you were considering it DD-EX just because it can be played that way, otherwise it shouldn't be on the list. To add to the list the new Die Hard Trilogy is supposed to be have DTS-ES tracks, somebody correct if I am wrong. Toodles!!

The list has been updated.
Henry,
I didn't even know they made DTS-ES CDs. Check the updates up top.
Hector,
Yep, Pitch Black is EX. Verified through multiple sources. We all know how the manufacturers screw up the labeling on a lot of DVD packaging, don't we? :) I haven't seen anything official on the Die Hard Trilogy as of yet. I'll add that to the list when it's official.

Cool, I guess I didn't notice because I always play Pitch Black in DTS. Or is it also possible to decode the DTS track to a DTS-ES Matrix?? Thanks for any answers.

Pitch Black has a DTS-ES matrix track. Set it to 6.1 matrix decoding (or DTS-ES matrix if you have it) on your processor and you're set!
If you mean decoding any active 5.1 and 5.0 DTS soundtrack with DTS-ES matrix or plain 6.1 matrix technology, yes it is possible. Your mileage will vary, however depending on how they were mixed in the rear surround channels.

Maybe the admins should create a link to this thread as the list will grow.
Or create a master list and put a"clicker" on top of the software page,so when some one click on it it will take him to the current updated list.
But someone should maintain it most of the time.
Are you up to it Troy?
Just a suggestion.

Lewis,
I could most definitely do that. :)
Moderators?
I don't see the Die Hard Trilogy being listed with DTS-ES anywhere. I guess that was just a rumor...

I admit that this will confuse the situation, but in regards to the DTS-ES matrix titles listed, except for those that are also DTS-ES discrete, these titles generally have actually originated from the same six-track, Surround EX-encoded printmaster as for the Dolby Digital version.
In other words, there isn't necessarily a special DTS-ES Matrix encoding for these, but with (at least) some of these titles a flag has been inserted into the DTS bitstream which certain decoders (DTS-ES, THX Surround EX or equivalent) can detect and automatically decode in DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, THX Surround EX, etc.
This is also true of theatrical releases that DTS denotes as DTS-ES on their release listings, for which the audio is actually Surround EX-encoded, but the serial number for the DTS CD-ROMs that is read by the cinema processor (beginning with 5000, I think) can be used to trigger the DTS-ES cinema decoder.

Add The Astronaut's Wife. Confirmed from Dolby's web site. I thought "Fallen" was in EX but I can't find any info.
