I too got this for myself for my Birthday, but unlike you I checked the back of the box B4 hand and was happy with the specs of the DVD. I dont care if its not in 5.1 I kinda think that misses the point. I think re-mastering of sound can go TOO far. Just think back to how sucessful making the old Laurel and Hardy movies into color was. Unwrap the film, sit back with a few beers and enjoy Oh and happy birthday ------------------ "How could this happen? We started out like Romeo and Juliet but it ended up in tragedy."
