Jabba still has subtiles. I don't know what you guys are talking about.


Me neither. Seems to me a lot of people here are making up crap about these DVDs so they can slam them, for no other reason than they aren't the originals. The transfers on these DVDs are stunning. The DD EX tracks on the DVDs are also stunning. Go read any review on the net. And yes, the lightsabers have been improved, considerably. Yes, they missed the one on the Falcon. Yes, there are some small inconsistencies. But the lightsabers in these films have never been completely consistent or flawless.

The back of the cover boasts that all 3 movies are in Dolby Digital 5.1EX. NOT TRUE.


You are incorrect! All 3 films do have true DD EX 5.1! Your receiver may not read it correctly, but I have a high-end setup, and ANH is in DD EX!

why didn't these movies come out in DTS-ES 6.1 its such a better format and suited to movies like SW where you need crisp sharp sounds and deafening bass.


Please! Not with this ridiculous DTS is better than DD crap. All objective data on this issue has found that the difference between the two formats is negligible. Sometimes DTS is better, sometimes DD is better. But the differences are slight to say the least. When both formats are mixed from the same master, you couldn't tell the difference.

DTS is not used as often anymore, for the simple reason being that it is a space hog. DTS takes up a lot of bit space, much more than DD does. Since DD is the official format of DVD, it has to be on there. Most studios or filmmakers do not want to sacrifice picture quaity for a DTS track, which is redundant in the first place. In order to put a DTS track on a DVD, you have to take away bit space from the transfer.

As for these DD EX tracks on the new Star Wars DVDs, they are incredible. They do have crisp, sharp, detailed sound. They do have tremendous bass. So I have no idea what you listended to.

GL couldn't get the sound right for these dvds


WRONG! These films look and sound better than they ever have. I know most here like to whine about the changes and will slam these DVDs just because they aren't the original, but don't make stuff up out of the blue.
