If anyone can confirm these 2 things, it would be great. If there's no DTS-HDMA, I'm returning the disc as it's no better than the UK import.
I too picked this up today, yes it does contain a DTS HD-MA track (48kz @ 2.0mbps) along with a Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2 commentary tracks.
The video is indeed 1.78:1 (VC1 encoded) and appears to be cropped at times and other times it almost looks to be opened up a bit at the top and bottom as well (when compared with the old Japanese DTS SD DVD which I've had for quite some time).
The image looks to be quite drained of color (director intended), and grain appears to be intact.
However, I am still less than satisified due to the lack of OAR, but for $17.99, I guess I could live with it until a better version gets released.
