God! How I love to get Region 1 DVDs early. I got Shrek last night at a local store, and let me tell you that it is just beautiful to watch. The double keepcase is the same as other DVDs as Gladiator, Cast Away and TPM, but I really liked the disc holder for the second disc. It works better than others, and seems more durable. The only thing I didn't like about the packaging is that the promo sticker leaves a lot of that sticky gum when you take it off, and it just makes it really ugly. I'm not goig to get into detail on the transfer, because it just looks stunning, as previous screeners have told us. I found DTS sounding better than DD. Since I'm from Mexico, and have a 2 year old daughter, I'm thankful of not only having a Spanish track, but a Dolby Digital one. I haven't really get into the extras last night, but a really nice touch that I've never seen before is that you have subtitles for the audio commentary in English, Spanish and French. That really helps. I saw the HBO First Look, a typical one, but I enjoyed the interviews with the voice actors, something I always look for on these kind of movies. One thing that I was expecting to see, reported earlier, was the extended ending which I thought it was going to be edited into the movie. It's everybody singing like in a karaoke party, but it is available at the end of the credits or separately via the menus. Anyway, its really fun. I still haven't gone through the DVDROM extras. But once I get a microphone this evening, I'll try the Revoice Studio, which is the thing I'm most looking for in this DVD. Enjoy!
