    at last the UK is getting more Superbit releases seeing as Spiderman is the only new Superbit since September last year! The new Superbit DVDs to be released in October are The Missing, once upon a time in Mexico, black Hawk down and S.W.A.T

    It's about time more Superbit DVDs will be released here but I think a little more selection is needed. Although I haven't seen the missing and S.W.A.T I already own black Hawk down on Korean Superbit and once upon a time in Mexico is a pile of crap.

    What Superbit DVDs would you like to be released?

    Now they have the technology i think that all dvds should be of superbit quality with the extras on a separate disc.

    yea but there's little incentive for them to remaster old titles...

    Not bothered at all to be honest, only those with very high end video systems will notice ANY difference in terms of video quality. Jeff swears he can see a difference on titles like Gladiator...and I believe him...BUT his projector and HTPC cost more than many people's entire AV systems :D

    Personally I don't have a good enough set-up to appreciate the higher quality picture so I mainly purchase them for the DTS soundtrack. Although one day I hope to get a better video set-up and then I'll be doubly glad as I will have the best picture and sound possible rather than a load of poxy extras that you only watch once.

    Having said that I think new titles should be released with a second disc of extras on the second disc.

    I'd like see Terminator be released on UK Superbit, also...

    The Replacement Killers
    Starship troopers
    True lies
    Jurassic Park

    Starship Troopers is available on R1 superbit, and Jurassic Park is in Japan (though it's difficult to get hold of now).

    I know they're available in other regions but if they were available in the UK they would also be cheaper and in the case of Jurassic Park much cheaper!

    I think it would be nice if the UK had the same amount of Superbit as the US and Japan.
