Probably not the best disc to see a great HD picture. I popped it in just to check it, and the picture looked good, but not great detail. Some scenes may be better though. I just got a new receiver (Denon 887) that does the PCM & DTS HD, and I had to FF through it to make sure my receiver was working right- it was my first DTS HD after a few PCM 5.1s. Most scenes sounded mono. I found a scene that expanded to the L & R fronts, but had to find a shootout to hear anything from the rears. So it's not a great audio showcase either. I got 3 other Lionsgates' BluRays this week that all had DTS HD (First Blood, Reservoir Dogs, & American Psycho- which says DTS ES on the menu, but says DTS HD on the box & is HD), and even First Blood had more seperation than Young Guns. The opening song in Dogs sounded great & I'm getting ready to watch Psycho now. But Young Guns was pretty weak from what I heard so far & good, but not great in video.

Seems disappointing, oh well I am interested in Rambo, can you tell me how the video and audio quaility is?

I only checked a few scenes, so it may be good overall. The sound seemed pretty bad though. First Blood looked & sounded great from what I saw. The only one I watched completely was American Psycho, which sounded great & looked great after the credits- the opening was soft & colored strange, which made me think the picture was going to be horrible. What's the address for the AVS site?

Let me guess: is one of them Gary?

Put a pile of horseshit in front of that guy, tell him it's in HD and he'll write a 10 page review about how it's the best HD version of horseshit he's ever seen....with just the right amount of intended grain.

Just watched Rambo last night. Excellent transfer. Especially clean and pretty detailed for an older film even in the darker scenes like the mine. I was worried since the Special Edition DVD looked pretty damn crappy. The DTS-HD track is very nice as well. Great seperation and nice bass once things start blowing up.

I thought his name was Douche, not Gary.

I can't bash him too much. he seems like a nice guy. And he gave me copies of his HD versions of Blade Runner and Mosquito Coast.

I'm sure he's a nice enough guy, but not everything released, ever, can be considered reference quality. Way too generous with praise and not so much with the Shift key.
