Default Creepshow Blu-ray Audio wrong and missing ! (solved)

Hi !

I didn't find any thread releated to this problem I have, so there it is :

It's because I want to know if i'm the only one that have this "error" on my Blu-Ray Disc, but the Audio is wrong on the package. It's written on the back that it contain an English TrueHD 2.0 and Dolby Digital 2.0 sound track, as well as a French 2.0 sound track, well, not really ! There is ONLY an English Dolby Digital 2.0 sound track on my disc, the TrueHD 2.0 and French one are not present, not even written in the Language section of the Menu !!!

I don't know if it's just me, but all I can say is that I live in Quebec, Canada, and that I bought this Blu-Ray disc in a store called HMV in Quebec. The cover is all in english, not double language, so i'm assuming that it's the US version distributed also in the USA. The UPC is : 8 83929 06441 0 and the ISBN is 1-4198-8033-0.

I would love to know if it's just me or if it's the same for everybody. If so, i'll write to Warner Bros and ask for an explanation, cause for the sound quality, it's not an upgrade at all over the previous NTSC DVD, there's even a 5.1 sound track on the PAL R2 Special Edition of Creepshow in the UK, so...

Here's a picture i've took so you all could see that it's true ! (I don't have a BD Player on my PC, so excuse the bad Kodak picture) :


And here's a picture took on the Sony BD Player of one of my friend, same thing, only 1 track, Dolby Digital :



I'll be waiting for others to comment on their BD, thanks in advance !

Here's the full cover scanned (too big to post as a direct picture) :

They probably F the Canadian release of it, but before saying that, I need confirmation of US person who bought it and can let me/us know.

Does anyone know why Creepshow only has a 2.0 soundtrack?

No lossless on my disk either. Dolby Digital 2.0. Creepshow is one of my all time favorites. I watch it at least once a year (usually around Halloween). I really like the image, and the disk is an all around upgrade from the DVD, but I am very disappointed in the soundtrack. The music for this movie is very, very unerappreciated, and they could have done better.

It came out in 1982. That's the original mix.

Warner distributed this in Canada as well, so chances are the disc is exactly the same in the U.S.

I hope this is just an isolated incident, and hopefully Warner isn't back to their old tricks again.

Seems they're up to their old tricks, again. The double disc from the UK(Universal) is far superior, at least in terms of extras-and pretty close on the PQ(the 5.1 mix is also fantastic). I am let down by this release...

Let me get this straight, the disc is advertised as having lossless but it actually doesn't? So the studio is flat out lying to us?

Would it technically be considered a defect if it didn't contain the lossless track that it was SUPPOSED to have?

I think he´s referring to the "2-disc special edition DVD" that was released in the UK!

Default The Sound Answer a Pet Beef with WB

The only defect is WB not bumping CREEPSHOW and DEAD CALM to 5.1. I have a lot of BDs. Close to a grand amount and every time I see DolbyTruHD that is less than 5.1 on a WB BD, I KNOW I'm not going to see my DENON read DolbyTruHD. In fact, like FALLING DOWN; amp says Dolby PL II Cinema, which means WTF; where's the TruHD?
I can think of over 5 WB titles that do this.
If you like the film like I do; I suggest you swallow your pride and (I'm past irritated) and just turn the sound up; because the BD will not be re-released differently nor another one behave differently.
Harsh but true as far as I know.
The DolbyTruHD may be encoded as http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film2/DVDRe...lm_blu-ray.htm
says, but the amp isn't getting it. (Notice he mentions the weak sound....like DD is compared to Tru)

This the best i can say and I am also bummed when I smell a situation like this; but I saw it coming when I saw DolbyTrueHD 2.0 on the box but bought it anyway, knowing. (It still sounds and looks better than the DVD)
If the amp doesn't say it; it may not be there or hard to read. The menu says nothing about DolbyTruHD anyway and offers no choice.
Warners strikes again!
...and that's my my two bloody cents
additional feedback appreciated.

Ive been having an aneurism over in the Leon: The Professional thread about the not-so-great upcoming release of Leon.

But this is atrocious. A 192kbps Dolby Digital Stereo track, when there are multichannel mixes already on DVD?

(and yes my Creepshow and Dead Calm are on their way to me now)

BTW does this release have all of the extras from the UK's 2-Disc-Special Edition???

Alright, I decided to scan my cover, so you could see that it's really written that on the back. And if you take a look at the sceenshot i've took on my TV, you can clearly see that there is no other sound track on it than the Dolby Digital 2.0

I'm just waiting for the confirmation with a US Blu-Ray of this movie, just to be sure. Because there's something wrong here.

Here's the full cover scanned (too big to post as a direct picture) :
