Actually all the original cast Star Trek films are 7.1, so that would not be a first for Paramount. The press release doesn't make sense to me. Given they are changing their codec for this release, tends to make me think that the TRUEHD track has the separate 7.1/5.1/2.0 tracks in one stream. If that's the case, that's a definite TRUEHD advantage over DTSMA. I'm pretty sure they would have the DD track still hidden.

I think you mean the next generation films, and they are remixes not true 7.1.
Megamind was the first 7.1 TrueHD afaik

If you didn't like 2, I don't think you'll like 3. 3 takes all the worst parts of 2 and repeats them in excess. Rent before you buy. UNless you want audio demo material.

Either way still a remix

For those who don't know, 7.1 TrueHD is actually 9.1 channels with an optimized rear-left surround and rear-right surround added to the bitstream for 5.1 setups. The three front channels are the same, if the system is set to 7.1 it substitutes the side-left and side-right and adds the surround back left and surround back right channels instead.

Not really a waste since the TF-DotM was mixed and released theatrically in 7.1.

It is not the first 7.1 TrueHD track that's for sure even the early Nightmare before christmas BD from Disney was 7.1 TrueHD along with some musical discs.

Not by much. The classic Bay quick cutting and always moving camera setups are still there along with the ridiculous running time. It's worth seeing for the robots though.

Or Legend of the Fist - had theatrical 7.1 and TrueHD 7.1 on the BD

Unless its just the 5.1 stem remixed into 7.1 since its a HK BD so who knows they might have done that.... since the US BD only has 5.1.

Yes, it is a little surprising to see TrueHD. Though TrueHD had been fairly common, as of late it seems like all of the major studios including Paramount have gone to DTS-HDMA for their lossless audio. I can think of only one other recent release that was TrueHD: Dexter season 5. I'm not picky; both DTS-HDMA and TrueHD are lossless, so after decoding, they are identical.

I'm looking forward to this release, but that price tag is pretty steep for a barebones release. I've added this to my Netflix queue, and I'll wait until a more complete version is available at a reasonable price.

One of the main reasons they did that is because DTS-HDMA works much better with seamless branching. Or in the case of Sony they did it because users told them that's what they wanted on a blu-ray.com poll.

All three Transformers movies are Dreamworks productions/releases first and foremost...The majority of Dreamworks' new release titles on Blu-ray have all been Dolby TrueHD.
However, Revenge of the Fallen does have a DTS-HD MA track...so there is a concious decision by Bay and the sound team to choose a TrueHd encoded 7.1 track over a DTS encoded one.
Either way, I will be purchasing both the standard and deluxe versions...

I really don't care much for extras these days, not for a piece of **** movie like TF3 anyway. But I'll be buying the standard edition because there's some nutty action in this movie and I wants it.

Truth of that poll was the decision had already been made, they were just making sure there'd be no backlash.

See, I'm a fan of the movie-making process so I always welcome 'extras' as long as they are good and not just tons of junk. Most of the time the extras are a bunch of junk so I know where you're coming from. If possible, I'd like to see a really in depth making-of documentary. Those are my favorite to watch. I don't rememeber irt Transformers2 but I remember the first movie had a pretty good 1-2hr making-of doc on disc.

Revenge of the Fallen actually had a good making-of done by Charles de Lauzirika. It even documents Bay realizing how incredibly awesome and not-stupid it would be to include robot genitalia.

Don't give me that. TF3 is a turd of a movie but it's the Citizen Kane of robot action porn, so I'll gladly put it in my 'guilty pleasures' pile.

I mulled over this all night last night. Finally decided I agree. It's the third movie.

[edit]hmm according to this:
http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/sh...nnounced_/7622 it doesn't include any extras. So..yes, I'll wait.

Michael Bay so wants to be James Cameron.

For Sentinel Prime Fans, seems like Walmart has exclusive cover art that was posted on the TF3 Facebook page...

You mean they aren't calling it the "Special Bigscreen Edition" this time around? ROFL

Actually Toy Story 3 was the first true Dolby 7.1 discrete mix, and it showcased it as the first theatrical release to use the format. Megamind is the first 7.1 BD I know of that uses the actual theatrical master with no changes that I'm aware of (no HT remaster). Tron Legacy is supposedly the same as well.

Why would they, nothing was shot with IMAX cameras for the third film? That Walmart exclusive was by far the best version of TF2 to own on BD. If only Warner had done as well with The Dark Knight when it came to its blending of film and IMAX footage.
