I didn't do any research on this DVD besides reading WSR's review. They list it as a "Two DVD-9 Discs/Anamorphic Widescreen" and I assumed Disk 1 holds the main title with DD & DTS w/o special features and Disk 2 contained all the SF which is what I've considered in the past as a std. two disk set. So, I didn't know Disk 1 contains the 1.33:1 full frame DD version instead of the much desired Anamorphic Widescreen version, which is on Disk 2 (which also includes the DTS track). Heads up! Don't make the mistake I made and pop in Disk 1 and expect OAR. I didn't view the whole movie but did check a few scenes after Trick-or-Treating with the kids: Chapter 1 "Once Upon a Time," Ch. 9 "The Dragon's Keep" and Ch. 14 "You Ate the Princess." I chose these scenes specifically for the dark scenes. I'm really pleased with what I saw. Even though these scenes were darkly lit, details were still visible and they were very well done, and blacks are deep and rich. (I can't comment on EE since I don't look for it and didn't view the whole feature.) When Pixar made Toy Story I didn't think it was possible to surpass it's quality but Dreamworks did just that with this movie. The attention to details in Shrek is more astonishing than I've seen in other gems such as TS/TS2. Warningossible spoiler ahead... An amusing feature of the DVD is the use of fairytale creatures in the menu and in the karaoke musical. For example Baby Bear speaks in the menu saying "This menu's too small" and a one legged Ginger Bread Man singing "Do you really want to hurt me" in the karaoke dance party. It's truly hillarious and my kids are going to love it, too. That's all I can really share for now since it's 1:30 in the morning and can barely keep my eyes open. I won't comment on the audio since I only listened to it at low levels. Lastly, even though I'll never have a need for the 1.33:1 version on disk one, I'm glad it's there. (It's still a waste of disk space, IMO.) It shows a welcomed approach to catering to both J6P and OAR lovers. Dreamworks did a fine job in this respect, IMO, compared to what other studios have done.
