|Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The: Special Edition||=|
The Region 1 version of this DVD misses out on;
When comparing the original release in Region 4 to this release, this new 16x9 enhanced version is definitely significantly sharper...until the image starts to move significantly. Then, it dissolves into an interlaced mess. Whilst the original Region 4 release has a softer picture, the relative clarity of pans make it much easier to watch. I suspect that at 68cm or below, the interlacing blur won't be too much of a problem, but it will be for anyone watching this on a decent-sized screen.
For now, I have to say that transfer-wise, the previous release of this DVD is to be preferred to the current release. Extras-wise, the opposite applies. Not having seen the R1 version, I cannot comment on its relative quality.
