    DTS-ES on and R2 bloody hell! I preordered it about an hour after seeing it at the cinema... get ready for one of the loudest soundtracks yet to arrive on DVD.:D if you saw this in the cinema you'll know what I mean.


    Wonder if we'll see Mr D on any of the special features?

    I saw the film when it came out at the cinema. I thought it was quite good obviously to be taken seriously, i think the film is worth just to see Halle Berry :D .

    Can anyone tell me what the diffrence is between dolby digital 5.1 and dolby digita EX or is it called dolby digital ES, anyone are these not the same as Dolby Digital 5.1?

    5.1 has five discrete channels (three front, two rear)

    DD5.1-EX has information for an additional rear centre channel but it is not discrete (the data is mixed in or matrixed with the other rear channels). So DD5.1-EX is almost 6.1 but not technically.

    DTS-ES is 6.1 in that centre rear channel is fully discrete and independent of all other channels.

    There is no official R1 release dates at this time, and it is worth noting that there are R2 exclusive extras with this release.

    at the mo i've got a pioneer 606d reg 1 player which is modded for multi region but it's a manual region selector using the remote so most of my discs are reg 1

    but i'll be getting a new player shortly which will be auto region selection so it won't matter as much if i get reg 2

    the sort of person who would buy a DVD because it had a DTS soundtrack regardless of the title itself.

    Or someone who would seek out an ultra rare Japanese DTS release of film and be quite prepared to shell out £60 for it... even though turning up volume on a normal DD dvd would produce the same results.

    there are quite a few here!:D

    If you want decent sound, you'll have to get the R1 version anyway :p
