The German disc of A Short Film About Killing looks great compared to AE, but is it really true (as listed on ofdb) that it has German dub and no original Polish audio?

Mon Oncle from the new BFI Jacques Tati Collection, chosen to match Beaver framegrabs.

This is a reissue of the old disc - the giveaway being that it still opens with the pre-2006 BFI logo.

Comparisions for this version can be found here http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDReview/inpraiseoflove.htm. With correct aspect ratio, removable English subtitles and 5.1 sound personally I think this release is going to be the best all-round version of this long mistreated title.

Can be bought direct from Why Not or other French retailers. Easy enough without any French language skills. :D

Sadly, this excellent release has been let down by the inclusion of non-removable and burnt in French subtitles during the Arabic and Hebrew language sections of the film. This accounts for about 20% of the film. The English subtitles sit above the French subs so the amount of screen space lost overall is quite a lot.

Comparisions for this title can be found here http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDReviews15/notre_music_dvd_review.htm.

With correct aspect ratio, 5.1 sound and some nice, unique extras this version should be the best but the burnt in French subtitles ruin it completely. So the best version is still the Optimum release, however as a twofer with the top-notch 'Eloge De L'Amour' (see post above), it is still an excellent buy for Godard fans.

Get it from Why Not Productions http://www.whynotproductions.fr/article.php?id=22

The Cahiers release has no visible combing (see caps 4 & 7) and better dynamic audio but had audible noise and some pops. The image does have too much contrast and the images are cropped slightly.

The Studio Canal has much higher video bitrate, yet seems a little murky at times and less sharp. It has some minor combing and lower audio bitrate but seemed less noisy and more even (ie. less dynamic)

I would like to see comparisons with the NTSC release from Fox Lorber if anyone has any to offer?

Maybe you should add a parenthetical "links strongly preferred" to the thread caption.

Grabs from the Spanish DVD of Wind Across the Everglades.

Color quality, etc is self evident, but I am certain this should be matted to 1.85 - note the WB logo credit and all the long shots.

Pardon me, as I don't have much experience making screen captures. I made all of these the same way, with the Snapshot function in VLC Media Player. I'm not sure why the grabs from the New Yorker DVD are smaller.

Your grabs are native size, they're fine. The size difference illustrates the pixel resolution difference between NTSC (640x480) and PAL (768x576). PAL has more pixels, and thus more resolution. HD is 1920x1080, and hence this is where 480p (NTSC), 576p (PAL) and 1080p (Blu-ray) comes from.

This is something I've always wondered about with those people who complain bitterly about Criterion's picture-boxing (slightly) reducing resolution. Shouldn't these people be boycotting NTSC in the first place? Aren't they losing much more that way, if there's a PAL option for the film in question?

Well, no is the short answer, because a lot of purists hate the slight (and unnoticeable to most) 4% speed-up and pitch change of PAL. It's the lesser of two evils really.
