    Nah, they have Edge Enhancement.

    Checkout Fifth Element, FOTR, Braveheart and animations like Shrek/Monsters Inc.

    The first disc I bought was The Mummy and it is still is great picture quality.
    Also X-Men is good the scene at the end show how good black and white can look in colour (if that sound funny just take a look).

    The best surround film I have heard is Willow but I only have Dolby Pro Logic.:(

    I recently watched Harry Potter 2 and damn if that ain't one impressive soundtrack! Check out the Whomping Willow (very appropriate name!) for serious subwooferage!

    Also, the Star Wars films may have edge enhancement, but their soundtracks are second to none.

    Cheers,

    Dunc

    It is going back a bit but I think Uncle Eric said Titan A.E. was one of the best disc to show the surround off.

    it's stunning, one day hopefully all transfers will be this good first time round!

    I just watched Signs R2 (DTS).

    Fabulous soundtrack IMO - everything from rustling leaves to dogs barking coming through the surround channels. The music came through several channels at once and was mixed very well. Dialogue was chrystal-clear as well and always at the right volume.

    Don't know what the DD mix is like but I was very impressed with the DTS mix.

    The picture was a bit grainy but nothing too serious. Certainly didn't make me enjoy the film any less.

    I have the none superbit edition and the picture is still stunning IMO. Vibrant colours and sharp visuals.
