I watched this last night on my 16:9 hdtv with progressive scan dvd player. I was so entranced with the quality of the DTS sound, as well as the great picture, that I actually enjoyed the movie! The scenes with the firecrackers and guns being shot in the air made some excellent use of the surround channels! And the colors were gorgeous. I think the quality of this disc REALLY added to the enjoyment of the movie. If it were a poor transfer with average sound qualities, I do not believe that I would have enjoyed it nearly as much, as the story was average. This is just another example of how a great DVD played on a good home theater system can make a otherwise average movie much more enjoyable! Just my 2 cents!
