    I have just been looking at getting X-Men 1.5 and on one site it states there reg 1 has DTS and THX. What do they actually mean when the disc has THX. At present I’m only on Pro –Logic, but I have a THX copy of Willow and it is about the best surround disc I have.

    anything that passes THX certification means that it passes certain criteria laid down by the THX boys. It is supposed to be a mark of guaranteed quality but in reality that's not always the case. I think one of the R1 releases of Highlander was THX certified and apparently its one of the worst looking discs many people have seen.
    George Lucas recently sold a chunk of THX to Creative, the computer hardware bods, draw what conclusions from that you will.

    the problem with highlander was THX certified the print, not the transfer. the source material was top notch but then it was transferred awfully. such cock ups are unlikely these days, but you never know.

    That does not correspond to the statement by THX:
    In short: it's all marketing BS.
