Default 'Brotherhood of the Wolf' (UK Import) - High-Def Digest review

Peter didn't love the film itself, but in terms of visual panache and ear candy, he says this British HD DVD import delivers in spades with a wonderful video transfer and a five-star soundtrack.

I wasn't quite as impressed with the video quality as Peter. I'd probably knock a star off.

Also, Peter, if you're reading, Even with the new Onkyo receiver you're still only getting the DTS core audio. HD DVD players, even the XA2 with HDMI 1.3, aren't capable of transmitting the raw DTS-HD MA bitstream for external decoding. The player decodes what it can (in this case the DTS core) and sends it as PCM over HDMI.

It's a great sounding disc, regardless. The movie has a hell of a soundtrack.

The movie itself would deserve more stars It's one of my top favorites in my HD DVD collection so far in terms of movie quality / entertainment value.

Josh Z beat me to the punch, HDMI 1.3 isn't yet ready to properly handle these high res tracks natively, even with the sr605. Needless to say, it cements the idea that SQ/AQ is very subjective. I have the French version but i've yet to give it a spin, i'll check back later with my 2 cents.

I love this movie.

I definitely think it's worth more than a 3 star to me. Glad the quality of audio and video is up to snuff.

I'll be purchasing this movie soon.

Peter/ Jed,

Can you confirm or deny that this disc was outputting DTS MA to the receiver? It's a simply glance at the display on the receiver (it will say DTS MA). I'm not doubting your review... we are all simply under the assumption that the XA2 can't output MA bitstream.

Thanks
