Default 'Cast Away' - High-Def Digest review

Just posted Peter's review of 'Cast Away.' Earning a rare double dose of five star scores for both video and audio, he says this Blu-ray catalog release delivers exceptionally well on the fundamentals, even though it lacks all of the video-based documentary materials from the 2-disc DVD.

Can my PS3 decode this DTS-HD MA, or will it revert to the DD track?

The PS3 will spit out the 1.5 Mb/sec DTS core which should be very good as well but not quite up to MA.

Awesome, this is what I wanted to hear in regards to the PQ/AQ. Will definitely be picking this up.

It was initially 5/5 and now it's 4 1/2 stars for video quality. What's up with that?

Is this movie 1.85:1 or 2.35:1? The back of the Blu-Ray case and the back of the DVD case says 2.35:1, but the Blu-Ray is 1.85:1.

I was surprised at the high marks for video...some early viewers remarked how disappointed they were by it. I'm going with Peter....
