    Watch a little bit of Ebert this weekend, he had a little blip on the whole superbit busniess, his opinion is there are noticable differences and manufacturers should do superbits and extras on a second DVD.

    I totally agree. Why differentiate between regular consumers who want more for their $$$ in terms of extras and videophiles? As far as I'm concerned, I would like all studios to do their best to improve the quality of their dvds while providing as much extra content as possible.

    You know, I don't agree with all of Ebert's reviews (who does?) but I think I have pretty much agreed with his views on what should/shouldn't be on the DVD format.

    New respect for the man...especially after his Dark City commentary-now that's a great listen.

    I also loved the "Dark City" commentary. I also agree with Ebert on the SB DVD's. I know lots of folks may not see an difference on there sets, but on my FPTV it is an improvment, and then there is the DTS soundtracks. Simply amazing! I would easily pay a bit more for a Superbit version on one disc and the extras on the second disc. I would not want to force other to do this so I only like it if it gave the other folks the option.
