The keepcase version has been re-mastered. However, some of the scenes, particularly those featuring the animations are faded and grainy looking. Other parts are near high definition quality. For the price, I would recommend purchasing this version if you don't want to pay extra for the Blu-ray. It looks really quite good when played on a Blu-ray player.
Hi, Sheila, yes, my goal is to get one of the DVD versions, but I was reading some of the customer reviews and they mentioned the quality of the DVD transfer from the 2004 version, but no one tells about the 2010 version. Now, I have a good reference. Thanks!! What is notable, too, is the lowest price of this new DVD version compared with the first one (almost a half!). So, I'm pretty sure I'll pick for this new DVD version (until I get my own BR player ;) and get the BR version).
No, the 2010 DVD release is just a port of the old DVD. From the menu screen to the bonus features to specks in the film that show up in the same spots - the DVDs are identical. Its just a money grab by Warner to cash in on the new Titans movies (with an awful looking cover).
. The differences between the 2004 and the 2010 versions:
2004 - subtitles - English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, Bahasa Indonesia, Thai (9) 2010 - subtitles - English, Spanish, French (3)
2004 - audio - ENGLISH: Dolby Digital Stereo [CC], FRENCH: Dolby Digital Mono 2010 - audio - ENGLISH: Dolby Digital Stereo [CC], FRENCH: Dolby Digital Stereo
Video quality - same on both releases
2010 version is cheaper than the 2004 version as six out of the nine subtitle tracks were missing. If you don't care about the six missing subtitles, then the 2010 version is a better deal. At the same time, you are also gaining the French audio track in stereo instead of the mono track from the 2004 version.
Yeah... Even the latest version gains some points due to the stereo french audio, it does not sound bad at all get all the original subtitles from the original version (well, maybe if you can read such languages and compare differences from one translation to another...)
Getting the latest version seems to be the best choice until now :)
