Notting Hill:The DTS Edition DVD Review
SRP: £2,600.00

Picture

This image is very good. Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen the print looks sharp and highly detailed and is virtually free from any grain or dirt. There are slight examples of edge enhancement seen sparingly here and there but overall the transfer is very good. Colours are rich and well saturated with no signs of bleed or bloom and flesh tones are accurate and detailed. The print has an overall cinematic look and feel which is almost up to demo standards.

Sound

Like I said earlier in the review the reason for reviewing this disc is due to its DTS presentation, and it is very good indeed. The Dolby track was always one of my favourite subtle yet realistic sound mixes and the presentation on this disc is the same. The mix is wide and engulfing with good use of directional surrounds which are mostly ambient, creating a realistic atmosphere which assists the feeling of the movie. The surrounds are also used to good effect with the score playing in most scenes. Dialogue is crystal clear and precise and overall the track sounds dynamic. That's the Dolby version so was there any improvement with DTS. Well yes, the track just seems to sound that little bit clearer and more immersive with a tighter feel to the score, it's not a huge difference, but it does better on an already good Dolby track

Extras

The extras kick off with a Featurette on Tips for Movie making Presented by Hugh Grant which is quite funny at times, if a little short in length. There are two trailers, Music highlights, Deleted scenes and a travel book in Japanese text. Most of the extras are in English with removable subtitles.
Notting Hill:The DTS Edition
A very funny Romantic Comedy with excellent audio visual presentation and a handful of extras.
