    Hows the DTS vs the DD? Are the extras different or are any removed for the DTS?
    Thanks friends.

    You really ought to be listening in "Thermian 2.0"; always go with the original language when possible.

    The two DVDs are virtually identical. I thought the two mixes seemed largely the same; the DTS version might have a small edge, but not by much. If I were to purchase one or the other, I'd go with the DTS one, but I wouldn't replace the DD copy if I already had it.
    All of the extras are also identical...

    I had problems with the DD crackling in the center channel (which I understand was a common problem, yes?), but the DTS does not seem that bad in the center channel.

    Clinton, that crackling you mention is present on both the DD and DTS versions. It is not a problem per se with either encoding scheme, but instead a problem inherant with the original mix in a couple spots where the microphone was overloaded during recording. Comparing both soundtracks, they are very very similar. With either one you won't go wrong.

    Go with the DTS version. The extras are the same.

    I agree, if you are deciding now on which to get, go with the DTS version.
    Personally I happened to get the DD version (happened to find it used in a store and picked it up at a good price) and am very happy with it, but if they were both on the shelf I'd go with the DTS.
