Ger - AVC 29998 kbps 24,000fps, DTS-HD MA 5.1 2216 kbps 16-bit, 34GB 1:47:23
UK/AUS - AVC 25018 kbps 23,976fps, DTS-HD MA 5.1 1916 kbps 16-bit, 41GB 1:43:55
CAD - AVC 24000 kbps 23,976fps, DTS-HD MA 5.1 1946 kbps 16-bit, 35GB 1:43:55
FR - VC-1 18240 kbps 24,000fps, DTS-HD MA 5.1 2000 kbps 16-bit, 43GB 1:47:23
US - VC-1 17088 kbps 23,976fps, DTS-HD MA 5.1 3698 kbps 24-bit, 20GB 1:43:55

And that shows two cuts only by comparing running times. And as you can see, french/ES and german discs have same running time so I don't belive this cut until more information.

And yes, the picture quality is very different on GER/ES/FR from the US disc. Much better contrast and more.
Thanks for the info. I'll get rid of my US disc for the German cut with the much better PQ. I enjoyed the film for the most part and think it's very underrated. If you know what kind of film it is before watching it, you might like it more.

Is the Studio Canal release identical in terms of PQ?
And is it 1080i also?

The Japanese versions of the Studio Ghibli movies are always the best. The price is what gets most people.

That's the only reason I don't own the Hong Kong version of The Last Samurai and the Japanese version of Terminator 2.

Review from this site confirms it: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-De.../36392/#Review

Deer Hunter

European releases- Superior transfer (14.99 Mbps), English DTS HD MA 5.1 is incorrectly pitched, 2.0 tracks are unaffected. ( A and B locked)

US- Lots of DNR and EE, 26.92 Mbps. (Region Free)

Another reason why U.K. Red Heat is better than U.S. release:

The U.S. release is incorrectly subtitled at 14:30. It reads "Well find him."

It should read "We'll find him." It is correct on the U.K. version.



Will the mods please sticky this thread already. Jeez!

Hey Chiefy, next time you just ask me which line to pull.
