as they obviousily should be, but the question originally asked was: is this film available in DTS, and as DonnachaOne
and myself stated yes, the Swedish and Japanese R2 editions do in fact have 5.1 DTS sound - let's not confuse Thundergod.

most everyone who I have talked about this either recommends HMV.jp or CDJapan.co.jp. HMV seems to have not so great postage rates to the US and having done with business with CDJapan have never had problem ordering from them

I wonder why no DTS on the 06/02 release?

I was pretty much expecting it with three discs in the set. You'd think that they woudl have thought that SOME of us would appreaciat DTS along with all those other goodies. There's no reason not to have it included. I had not heard about the superbit release, do they (Superbit)work a deal where they have exclusive rights to DTS releases?

That sucks. I hate owning 3 slightly different versions of the same DVD.

Why exactly do you own 3 versions?

I would assume that the most you'd need to own is the DTS version and this new Special Edition.

If you really want DTS, I would wait for the unavoidable, inevitable Superbit of this movie. I think that is why they were holding off the release of the SE with DTS for that reason.

Oops, I forgot to turn the sarcasm switch on. If there is a SUperbit DTS release that's 1, I own the origional, - 2 and this 06/02 one fo rthe wicked docs an dextra stuff. - 3. But you are correct, I'd just keep teh DTS and the 3 disc one.

I'm a loser I guess. I have two LOTR(like many I'm thinking). I can't wait the 3 months until the 'good' one comes out.

I'll have to get around to selling the now-redunant copies I guess.

Did you read my review of the Scandinavian release? This is much, much cheaper than the Japanese release

BHD is long film.

In order to get a good bit-rate for a decent transfer AND a decent DTS - the movie would have to be split up into two discs for the movie alone.

One word:

se7en

And that theory is totally not true.

Great picture MULTIPLE commentaries, DTS AND DD 5.1...etc.

Yep. I would give it six months or so. I'm sure we'll see it.

All the reviews so far that I have read (3) indicate that the 5.1 is OUTSTANDING and there is no need to wait for a DTS version. I will compare my copy as soon as it arrives as I have access to the DTS Japanese version as well.

Again though....all reviews indicate an excellent 5.1 mix with hardly any room for improvement.

Didn't see it listed yet at CDJapan but they've just announced the Black Hawk Down CE in region 2 Japan.

2 discs with DTS at the affordable price of 7800 yen.
Gotta start thinking of reasons to buy it to explain to my wife.

Seven: 125 minutes

BHD: 145 minutes

20 minutes of high bitrate video makes a big difference in compression.

Commentaries do not.
