    Can I also recommend Gangs of New York and Panic Room, both DTS for superb clarity.

    Just watched my new favourite demo disc - DareDevil R1 in dts!! The LFE and dynamics are astounding. The Dolby Track in comparison sounds a little wooly in the bottom end and struggling with the high stuff.
    Film was really quite enjoyable fun as well.

    Behind Enemy Lines DTS (Region 1) when the planes getting shot down at the start is really dynamic. used this alot when giving demos.

    Brotherhood of the Wolf Canadian DTS French Language version is awesome too...

    As the film is released this week on R2, I think a lot of people
    will echo your sentiments. Definately one of the better dts 5.1
    soundtracks released so far.
    Look forward to your review, Phil.

    For those with Multiregion player (which is just about everyone?!) i really recommend this disk. The DTS-es soundtrack is fantastic. One of the best soundtracks for showing off your surround system. The Crash scene at the start is brought to life in all its splatteringly (not sure if thats a word - it should be!) goryness. Just make sure your viewing friend hasn't just eaten.

    Also agree Daredevil is fantastic!

    Different subject - why are Warner releasing Matrix ReLoaded with a pretty ****e DD5.1 soundtrack - even Harry Potter had the EX treatment - surely this movie deserves an EX release and maybe even DTS (it is shown in Cinemas as DTS-es, so the soundtrack does exist!!!)

    Warner Bros. Dont like the technology apparantly. However there seems to be some kind of conspiracy story about this. The few Warber titles with dts are actually not Warner financed movies, i.e True Romance.

    I wathced Daredevil last night - it's the first film I've watched in DTS, and it was fantastic! I was really impressed with some of the subtle steering that was used, not just the loud bits :cool:.

    Cheers,

    Dave.

    Agree with most of the above comments
    One that has a fantastic use of rear speakers is 'Blue Crush' the film might not be the greatest, but the surfing scenes -- both sound and vision are quite superb
