    Hello - It seems like Paramount hasn't done a lot of really loaded DVD's. The few that they have done, are really great in terms of extras content. The best ones I've seen for content (not necessarily films themselves) have been Star Trek The Motion Picture, Mission Impossible 2 (blech, but a great dvd in terms of extras), and Tomb Raider. I haven't seen The Godfather series yet, but am sure it is well done. Are there any great Paramount DVD's I'm missing here?

    In addition, why hasn't Paramount released any films with DTS sound? It seems really random with studios and DTS.
    Is there a reason for this?
    Examples: Paramount & MGM (?) no DTS releases, Universal multiple releases for DTS DVD's and non DTS DVD. Then others like Fox that sell one disc with a DTS track on it.

    Thanks for your input!

    I believe the last time Mr. Blythe commented on DTS, the answer was "no support planned at this time"

    Although its pure speculation since its still at least 3 quarters away, but I do remember several threads on here from a while back saying that Paramount is looking at possibly including a DTS track on the Titanic SE. It would make sense since that was the only DTS Laserdisc that Paramount ever did.

    Even if they dont, theres just so few examples where DTS is that much better than DD, that I dont even worry about it anymore. I dont mean this to be an attack on DTS, because when available, I do choose it, but I dont lose any sleep if a favorite movie of mine doesnt have a DTS track.
