Did you get the UK or US blu's of underworld 1 & 2?
The UK ones are inferior transfers. MPEG2! Plus US has PCM audio on first one not sure about second.

Both US, both PCM audio! :nod: :)

Now look at that:

Underworld (Entertainment In Video UK Blu-ray): Dolby Digital 5.1
Underworld (Concorde GER Blu-ray): DTS 5.1
Underworld (Dutch Film Works NL Blu-ray): DTS-HD Master 5.1
Underworld (Sony US/CAN Blu-ray): PCM 5.1

:crazy:

Nice one!
I got the US trilogy boxset. :)
I was more interested in better AVC transfer rather then sound as I dont have a sound system yet.

Its uncompressed audio :)
So no loss in audio quality from the actual master.

So does that make the soundtrack better than a DTS 5:1?

Recieved my 3 Action Cult titles from Amazon Germany this morning. I have another 4 on order from D&T Mailorder (as they were cheaper than Amazon), but they haven't even been sent yet! As mentioned before, each cover is reversible so you don't have the FSK logo or Action Cult border around the artwork.

I had five arrive today-but DELTA FORCE was shipped seperately.....:confused:

Silent Running has been one I've wanted for a while. I think I'll add it to the list for next month. Melancholia arrived this morning, so unless Four Flies, Drive or Red Scorpion arrive tomorrow I'll be enjoying that! Not sure what the release dates of those others are.

I was actually going to watch it today but this morning I finished up the first series of Misfits and just watched the second ep of Sherlock after work. I really enjoyed both.

Watched Operation Condor the other night, considering it's on one disc with 3 other films and was under 12 I think the quality is damn fine.
