One more here complaining about audio dropouts via TrueHD on both theatrical and extended cuts. Several as well. Mine is a Mexican copy, BTW. Spanish DD 5.1 no prob, though. Glad to hear there's a work around thru PCM, but hoping for a firmware update fix. LG BD player + Onkyo receiver.
Other than that, I still can't believe how much I loved (love) this movie. Everyone I've showed it to as well. Awesome sound (minus the infamous caveat), awesome picture, awesome sci-fi ideas and graphics, beautiful Beckinsale and Biel!!! Much better than what I recall the original to be, IMO, but happy they added the obvious nods to it. Farrell is great too, I thought. Christ, even Cranston is great in this! I also enjoyed the extended cut, probably equally. Great re-watchable value this is to me. Thanks again, Ralph!
The flares? I am another fan of these. Yes, since Abrams's Star Trek! Flashlights or otherwise, they add to sci-fi rather than detract from it, again IMO.
EDIT: forgot to mention this, but somebody posted way earlier a similar dropout problem with Brave and Nemo. I noticed it on my Brave copy the other night where TrueHD 7.1 gave a single, long-enough-to-stop-go-back-and-replay audio dropout right after Merida's opening narration. No problem after that (nor the previous time I'd seen this in TrueHD 7.1), didn't repeat itself or anything. Something fishy is definitely going on... Edited by Taranteacher - 1/9/13 at 10:53am
