I think they used heavy noise reduction on this and then added some fake grain. It still looks good, just unnatural, compared to the german release.

seen a few in here mention that the sound on this US release is solid. that is unfortunately not the case. the German release sounds a bit better than the US disc but the NTSC/US DVD is the winner here as far as's especially evident during any of the music sections. TT seems to have applied a generous amount of noise reduction and the highs have been removed. gives it that nice "head in a toilet bowl sound" that no one wants. would be interesting to see if the '89 CBS/FOX laserdisc sounds any better.

the 5.1 on the TT release is also just a 3.0 mix that's been thrown in a 5.1 container. there is no data in either of the surround tracks or the LFE track. i always wonder if this is just complete incompetence on their end, or a manager said "the box needs to say 5.1 because marketing" so they just did it the easiest way.

i also don't think i saw anyone mention that the german version has a roughly 35 second cut in it at about 1:48
