    I got my copy of Crouching Tiger (superbit R2) yesterday and to be perfectly honest I wasn't that impressed, the sound is incredible don't get me wrong (with the DD trouncing the DTS which sounded un-natural and vocals a tad 'metallic'). CT, HD has an incredible soundtrack, fights are amazingly involving with excellent use of sound effects for swords, blow darts and other weaponary. The incidental score is also first rate and sounds very, very good on this superbit release.
    The data transfer was running at between 8 and 9mbs on average which is above average but the print was very dirty, covered in flecks of dust and hairs which you wouldn't expect from a release this recent. Bit-rate is one thing but it means nothing when the print itself is dirty and even a little grainy during some of the fight scenes. On the other hand the colours are vibrant and the photography on this film is so damn beautiful its easy to look passed this flaws.
    Although I think the Superbit release of CT, HD is a bit of a missed opportunity.
