    What is it with the Studio's and Box sets. They feel they only need the first movie in the collection 5.1 and the others don't matter. Now I won't be buying this set!
    Dirty Harry: Dolby Digital 5.1
    Magnum Force: Dolby 2.0 soundtracks
    The Enforcer: Dolby 2.0 soundtracks
    Sudden Impact: Dolby 2.0 soundtracks
    The Dead Pool: Dolby 2.0 soundtracks

    I'd be wondering whether the first disc is the current one. I don't really care about remixes if it contains the original audio, but I do care about good picture quality.

    As long as the dolby 2.0 sounds good, I don't mind much. I prefer to not pass judgment on a release before it's out unless they do something really stupid like not do a widescreen transfer (I think the last Dirty Harry box on Laser wasn't all widescreen). Since 2.0 is their original audio I don't mind and will be picking this one up.
    The seller to me was that the original had a new transfer struck. I think that one is as timely today as it was when it first premiered.

    I'm actually more concerned that the original (mono?) track hasn't been mentioned as being included, from what I've read.

    I already have the old DIRTY harry disc, and I don't really want to re-buy. BUt I am very happy about the DEad Pool. Like Jeff said, I don't care about remixes, just as long as the picture quality is good. Besides, I'm only buying it for the car chase (a huge car vs. a radio controlled car talk about tounge in cheek) and Jim carey lip syncing to Guns and roses (from what I remember, it's been a long time since I viddied it)

    Just FYI, DVD File has posted a correction today that all of the titles in the collection will include 5.1 tracks. ( So Norm, breakout your wallet. [​IMG] )
    There was no comment in the correction regarding the inclusion or exclusion of original OAF tracks. Personally, I hope they are included, but it is not a deal-breaker for me.
    - Walter.
    Correction on the correction. [​IMG] I just re-read the blurb over at DVD File and it is worded to make it sound like the 2.0 tracks are not available.
