    New Line Cinema HDX Films In Dolby Stereo

    Many New Line Cinema films play in Dolby Digital Stereo on Vudu, even though they play in Dolby Digital 5.1 on other formats (iTunes, MoviesAnywhere, physical Blu-ray disc, etc.).

    There are some egregious cases here of very popular films and big-budget action films playing in puny Stereo sound, which is unacceptable. It seems that this problem disappears after "Semi-Pro," which was the last film New Line released before becoming a division of Warner Bros.

    I see that the below movies are affected, in release date order:
    1. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
    2. Critters
    3. Hairspray (1988)
    4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    5. King of New York
    6. Deep Cover
    7. Menace II Society
    8. The Mask
    9. Dumb and Dumber
    10. In the Mouth of Madness
    11. Friday
    12. Little Odessa
    13. Mortal Kombat
    14. Rumble in the Bronx
    15. Michael
    16. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
    17. Spawn
    18. Wag the Dog
    19. Blade
    20. Pleasantville
    21. Living Out Loud
    22. American History X
    23. Blast From the Past
    24. The Corruptor
    25. Detroit Rock City
    26. The Astronaut's Wife
    27. Next Friday
    28. Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
    29. Boiler Room
    30. Final Destination
    31. Love & Basketball
    32. Frequency
    33. Rush Hour 2
    34. Blow
    35. Hedwig and the Angry Inch
    36. Austin Powers in Goldmember
    37. I Am Sam
    38. Blade II
    39. About Schmidt
    40. Secondhand Lions
    41. Elf
    42. The Butterfly Effect
    43. The Notebook
    44. Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle (Unrated)
    45. Cellular
    46. Birth
    47. A History of Violence
    48. Domino
    49. Just Friends
    50. Snakes on a Plane
    51. Fracture
    52. Rush Hour 3
    53. The Golden Compass
    54. Semi-Pro (Unrated)

    Please upgrade these films with the best audio encode possible. Thank you.

    We been asking for an audio update for quite some time to no avail. I have several of the titles here myself and would like to enjoy them in 5.1 here as well, but an upgrade is not a priority what-so-ever. So instead I enjoy them in 5.1 where available elsewhere. Good luck and enjoy!
