    I should imagine that every disc that has a dts only soundtrack only would be full bit rate.
    Check out the dts site www.dts-tech.com for a full list.

    You beat me to it Gareth, I just brought up WSR to provide a link.

    I just had a look and it seems SPR was a half bit rate production. I think it was the last 'DTS only' and the first half bit rate disc (for movies anyway).

    Yeah, SPR was the first half-rate.

    I'm 99% sure that the two JP films are half-rate (including the re-released JP with corrected soundtrack)

    The first batch of DTS DVDs were full rate, Apollo 13, Dragonheart etc etc etc. Nearly all of the releases since SPR have been half-rate.

    Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Haunting, Jaws and Saving Private Ryan are all half bit-rate DTS titles.

    Every DTS title released prior to Saving Private Ryan was full bit-rate DTS. Every title released since then (November 1999), excluding Galaxy Quest, The Thin Red Line, and Warner Brothers' five DTS titles have been half bit-rate.

    Also included in the full bit-rate catagory is the most excellent Jap R2 Armageddon. Whilst opinion is divded as too whether The Haunting or Seven is the best DTS 6.1 soundtrack (i think they are both excellent given their respective genre's) the Armageddon (like it or loathe it) DTS soundtrack is the outstanding 5.1 disc (i actually prefer it too SPR). When i first "exchanged" my R2 "flipper" for the dual layer version i asked if i could have my "flipper" back (non-anamorphic and all) as the newer version sound track is so incredibly weak by comparison i can given specific examples if required. Both the Criterion and DTS versions really are almost "different" versions of the soundtrack.
