    Both of these Michael Mann films have bare-bone Region 1 DVD's.

    Region 2 Ali will be a 2-disc set with dts and a few featurettes.

    What about Heat? Wasn't there a region 3 dts version somewhere? Does anybody own it or have a link to a review of the dts/dolby comparisons?

    The R3 Korean version is a two-disc set...

    Disc One has the film presented in Dolby Digital only. The film maintains the proper "scope" aspect ratio.

    Disc Two has the film presented in stereo and dts only. The film has been modified for the "widescreen television" aspect ratio.

    Supplements are the same as the R1 release.

    As stated before, Michael Mann does not support added-value or promotional materials. He does not prevent them from being included unless he personally worked on a release but he won't participate in any of them.

    You are better off sticking to the R1 release. Its cheaper and easier to obtain...you might get dts with the R3 release but the dts version of the film has the altered aspect ratio.

    You know, that's really a shame. Mann is such an interesting filmmaker, I bet his audio commentary for Heat would be fascinating.
