Shrek: First Look

Looks like we have a bit of an exclusive on our hands here. Thanks to dtsrules and a little expense, we now have a Region 2 copy of Shrek in our hands - apparently this is the rental disc, but a very brief look suggests that extras wise, it's quite packed (I'll need to have a closer look to confirm whether this is the same as the disc due out on 12 November).

From my very brief viewing, I can say that the film looks beautiful on DVD. The disc has an anamorphic 1.85:1 transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound (I forgot to check to see if there was a DTS track, but we'll assume there isn't until I get to check). I will say that the DTS track on the Region 1 disc will have to be damn special to beat what we have here. This looks like it could be a reference-quality disc.

I'll be doing a full review tomorrow - once I've had a chance to go through the disc in more detail.
