Great adventure. My 4 year old son and I were captivated all the way through. 7 years 6 months ago
I watched the KINO DVD and the Cohen BR side-to-side.
(This turned out to be a good idea for the experience with the movie, and not so much with making time for other movies.)
Both tinted, but in various ways.
In the 1st half the DVD employs more various tints, while BR sticks to B&W or sepia more.
I think it's the other way around for the 2nd half.
At some point BR starts looking considerably more cropped, that tips the scales for me in favor of DVD completely already. Later even more.
There are some differences in scenes, here the most noticeable
Overall DVD is faster moving for some reason though FPS seems to be the same 24;
BR shows theman falling from the statue;
DVD has an extra shot with themagic apple;
BR has better picture quality in themagic applesequence, in fact DVD dips considerably here;
DVD has longer and extra shots with thedoctor and the princess and the carpet;
and later with riding through the desert;
after that there's more shots that last longer than the other version, BR has a number of slightly longer ones as well, and even extra scenes of the more pointless kind;
thearmy conjuringscene lasts 30 seconds longer in the DVD version;
there's more differences after that where lots of action is going on, and BR is lacking 3 minutes here, but adds about ten seconds in the final 2 minutes ofcarpet flying. 5 years 1 month ago
