    Got mine on order at amazon :)

    Also carlitos way DTS is out soon along with scarface DTS and also the longest day DTS :)

    Plus theres quite a few reduced reissues like Shakshank DTS for only 1500 yen..

    Just search for DTS under movies on cdjapan to get most of the films..

    R2 now has DTS. Bought in HMV today in 2 for £21 offer along with Fifth Element SE.

    Jap version probably a waste of money as a result.

    Seems to be. It's got a sneek peak at "Day after Tommorow" and is advertised on the cover as having:

    "8 minutes restored footage (i.e the existing R1 cut) plus DTS audio and restored picture quality.

    2 disc edition.

    If you pop into HMV you can get (if you haven't already) 2 for £21 on this. The other titles are:

    Minority Report
    Die Hard 1 and 2
    Predator
    Daredevil
    ID4
    Fifth Element
    Fight Club
    Xmen 1 and 2

    I didn't see any more but the leaflet states that there are a number of other SE's such as

    Sound of Music
    Speed
    Braveheart
    Moulin Rouge
    French Connection
    The Abyss.

    It might be worth seeing whether the Abyss is a re-release or new DTS release.

    so, other than the dts track its the same as the R1 Five Star collection I got in 2000?

    please say yes, I don't want to replace it a second time! unless TXH 1138 says the dts is far far far (far ....) superior to the DD5.1 I already have

    £8.99 at play along with all the other fox films in the BOGOF offer.. so you do not need to buy 2...

    Has the fith element SE already been reviewed.. any reason to get over the R1 superbit ?

    cheers

    damm and blast! I hate being an addict :)

    note that the play version doesn't list dts so seems to be the R2 verison of the R1 five star collection

    Anything listed as being released in May 2004 should be the correct R2 version.

    No idea why HMV are already selling though.

    just checked hmv.co.uk. it lists at released on the 26th (ie today) and is available for pre-order only. plus all the £16.99 bogof SEs are listed as release today too. strange

    guess a trip to bricks and mortor is in order

    Update: picture quality is very good and colours very very vibrant.

    Sound quality for DTS appears amazing. Had it on -60dB on my Denon 3803 and still thought I should turn it down.
