    hi there.
    can anyone advise me of the best priced place to purchase the movie "ju-on:the grudge" in region 3 format with the dts soundtrack included?
    i've seen it advertised on cd-wow but there's no mention of a dts soundtrack???
    many thanks in advance
    paul

    Paul,

    I think Jim means the original.You can get the original (Japanese) film version of
    Ju-on:The Grudge on a single disc PAL Region 2 that has DTS sound.
    I got one from Asda for £9.99.

    It is on the Premier Asia label.

    However they are going to release a 2 disc version 21/02/05.

    You can get 2 disc DTS from http://www.dvdfromkorea.com/default.asp

    can also get JU-ON 2, 2 disc DTS which seems to have a pic of Michael Jackson on the cover :laugh:

    just put ju-on in the search box and both come up.

    It depends on soundtrack. The one I got before Xmas from CDWow has DTS but only on the Japanesse sound track. The English dubbed sound track is not.

    i believe if you put the disc into a pc's dvd drive and play it using power dvd and select information i think it tells you in there.

    yep,that's the one mate.
    pity,it's half bitrate.
    looks like the region 3 version is the one i would want then as it has full bitrate 1509kbs.
    many thanks for helping me out.

    to the disc ?,........ Jim

    stupid question???
    we would never get any knowledge without asking questions my friend.
    to my understanding,the better the bitrate the better the quality,hence superbit titles being available for certain films.
    in this case it gives the sound in the film a much better punch with meatier bass.....
    maybe someone can give a better description of its merits though.....
    see here for the region 3 review :

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=134723&highlight=grudge

    hope that helps.
    really want this version but am struggling to find it anywhere (except in region 0) which i dont like the sound of....
    oh well
