    Yes they do. It's just a bare bones movie with a DD and DTS soundtrack.

    Having a couple of superbit dvd's, i.e. Gladiator and leon, I can't see all that much of an imrpvement over standard dvds, (brother has standard Gladiator). Waste of time unless the differences are more noticeable on a large screeen, 42"+ perhaps. Not that noticeable on a 26" lcd. Though maybe you need a high end dvd? only have Pan dvd rec dmr85.

    Depends on the disc, on my old 7.5' screen, I couldn't see a difference on all the ones I tested. A couple of people have commented that they CAN see improvements, but are running video setups which would probably be a mortgage to many people :)
