Poor Blu-ray transfer - no HD sound,
This review is from: Lara Croft - Tomb Raider: Uncut Edition [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)Although the picture is an improvement on the DVD (though not brilliant by Blu-ray standards), the sound is not.
Yes, you get higher bitrate DTS (as well as a Dolby Digital option), but you get neither the Dolby True HD nor DTS-ES mixes the Blu-ray packaging promises.

well he's spot on -
no lossless sound, a disgrace in this day and age but not uncommon as all major studios and distributors do this at some time or other and there is no logic or reason to their madness as to which film gets high def sound

Wish I'd read more reviews before I bought this. Would've strongly considered sticking with my DVD.
I thought the sound was a bit of a letdown, but nowhere near as ropey as the picture. Half the time it looked like the movie was sourced from one of those hi-def tapes. It had scanlines going up and down the screen. Had to check to make sure my TV wasn't losing it.
Paramount really dropped the ball with this disc.
Lara deserves better.

I agree, there is a percentage of Movies Transfered from DVD onto Blu-ray, with very let down Cinema sound, and ocasionally even the picture quality is questionable. This is also very noticeble in "The Day after Tommorow" Blu-ray, very dissapointing, after seeing the official Blu-ray release at Comet store some years ago, But that was a Especially made demo, and is nothing like the One that was offered to the public. The Matrix trilogy, is, however is awesome on blu-Ray, as is some bond films, Almost all Resident evil films, converted to Blu-ray, are Brilliant.. For some reason, some older Films That have been enhanced and put onto Blu-ray, have really upped the pleasure of watching them, Guess, its take your chances on some titles, converted to Blu-ray:P I'm quite happy with both normal DVD Tomb raiders I bought, upscaled onto a 32Incher, I will keep to those!

What's more "outrageous" is that the cover carries the Dolby TrueHD logo, despite the fact that no TrueHD audio stream is available. I'm not familiar with british law, but in most countries it is illeagal to sell products with false contentdescriptions.
