    I just recieved Die Hard trilogy and watched the first movie on Friday night.I thought the remastered 5.1 sound was excellent especially the bass which excells.However,last night I watched Die Hard 2 and was amazed at the total lack of LF effects throughout the whole film.Has anyone else noticed this?

    I agree - the overall sound on Die Hard 2 is very good, better than alot of releases in fact, but the LFE was slightly dissapointing. Some explosions definitely lack the punch of many of the scenes in the first film.

    I got the set last week too, and have started using the DTS intro to Die Hard 3 as my "listen-to-this-and-be-impressed-with-my-stuff" thing to show my friends/annoy the neighbours... :D

    what was all this about Die hard 3 and the DTS intro,I rushed downstairs and put it on only to find an old DTS intro from SPR or Twister I think.
    talk about dissapointed I thought that DTS had brought out another intro.

    I think the DTS intro he was talking about was simply the opening sequence IN DTS.... you know the 'summer in the city song' and the shop exploding?? I have to agree though, its about time we got a different DTS intro other than the standard one and the piano one.

    BTW, if anyone is interested, my Die Hard Ultimate Collection review is online now. Read is HERE

    Enjoy ;)
