I wonder if From Dusk til Dawn is still getting an Oct release? Sin City and it had the same release date.

I didn't know Sin City was announced. I've only been out of town for 3 days and it gets announced, then delayed while I'm gone. :laugh: I guess that saves me from a disappointment. ;)

Now what's this about Braveheart? :eek:

It's true. To my suprise, I saw it at FutureShop yesterday. I didn't bother picking it up though. Barebones with no HD audio (DTS and DD 5.1 only). I figured there will eventually be a decent doubledip when the sequel is finally done.
Canada has always had crappy luck when it came to Sin City. The first DVD was barebones with DTS as everywhere else, but the Special Edition had the DTS removed for the French language track. Extras and good sound in one is never to be found.

WHAT??? Are you kidding me? no lossless? what genuises are responsible for this?
had to pass on the SE due to DTS cut out, was SOOO looking forward to the HD release and now... this.
it's a disgrace...


Edit: $19.99? for a new release... must resist... barebones... no Lossless audio... no recut version... still so tempting...

Over on AVS some members picked it up and confirmed that there was a misprint on the box and that the "DTS" is in fact DTS-HD Master Audio.

You can pick it up over at Amazon.ca for $19.99CA but the shipping is where they get you. It's $7.99 per shipment to the US + $1.99 per item. Since the $CA is about .90 to the $US residents do OK, but IMO I don't think it's worth it.

^ Each CDN$ only costs US$0.80 today! (if you're desperate) They soak us for the shipping coming cross-border this way too. I highly doubt you can find enough at amazon.ca price-wise to make buying BDs there worthwhile. I have enough trouble even with "free" shipping.

Thanks for that info! The old "Canadian misprint" trick eh? Surprising how often that happens. Ummm...it was The Perfect Storm BD not long ago IIRC. Anyway, DTS-HD MA would be my top choice, so that's nice.

Okay, so via Amazon.ca it's $16.63 in US dollars. Expedited International Shipping (4-7 business days) is $9.13, for a grand total of $25.76. I find that perfectly reasonable for a highly-desirable (albeit barebones) title on Blu-ray... especially one that I can't get here in the States until next year. Sold!

^ Yeah, there are a few deals. Like "300" would only be about US$14 at amazon.ca, vs US$21 at .com now (I know it's been cheaper there). Not many though. Something you can't get in the U.S. but can in Canada is kinda unique at this stage of BD.

I don't own either disc, but folks on AVS who do have them have confirmed that both have DTS-HD MA.

Yes it is confirmed by multiple owners. From Dusk Till Dawn also has DTS-MA.

I have my copies here at work and plan to check them out tonight.
