I really can't understand Warner. TMNT gets lossless (no offense Alan) and Alexander gets standard 5.1. Haven't seen the audio specs for Troy yet either. Is it so hard to give us lossless on every title?
nice shots, I'll rent these as soon as they become available in Taiwan
It is one of the better transfers I have seen, and it is in the high-20Mbps range encoded in VC-1.
Methinks the main reason why the transfer is so good is that this movie has digital roots, and they used that as the master, so there was no actual film scanning involved. The end result is something that does look better than what I saw in the theater in terms of detail and quality.
I haven't seen the banding that some have seen, though. It could be a TV issue. :/
