2.0 out of 5 stars For the best image quality, stick with the previous releases, May 25, 2005
This review is from: Limelight (Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
Warner Bros really blew it with these new Special Edition releases of the Chaplin films. Instead of transferring them to DVD from the original film sources, they merely converted some PAL versions to NTSC. So, while the new Warner's DVDs have better sound than the previous versions released by Image Entertainment, they are also slightly sped up due to the PAL to NTSC conversion. But, worst of all, as The Laser Examiner website noted, "The picture quality during normal playback is noticeably softer and less defined in texture as well as detail, and the overlaps make the motion fuzzy as well." So, if you're a visual purist, you're probably better off grabbing the original Image Entertainment DVD releases of the Chaplin films.
