I just purchased my copy of Anchor Bay's latest AOD: Boomstick edition. I put it in my Philips DVD-963SA, and made sure to turn on progressive scan.


Well, the blue "Progressive Scan" light turns on, and the movie begins. But 'lo and behold, I see horrible lines outling in and around the teeth and noses of the actors, and in several other places.


What gives? I have my Sony KP-51WS500 set to full, my Philips is not "Zoomed" in. Everything is perfectly set up and I'm still getting this horrible picture. Anyone have a clue what's going on?


I played the Transporter afterward, and it looked AMAZING. No lines or anomalies anywhere...

i believe these are the same rehashed terrible transfers. There was a thread discussing a R2 version that looked great. Well I think it was R2 it might have been another region. Anyway Anchor Bay has butchered those films.

Probably an incorrectly flagged disk confusing your dvd player. Cabaret is the same, looks terrible - deinterlacing errors everywhere.

The R2 edition is what you need. It's so vastly superior, you will have a stroke when you see it.

I received the R2 a couple od weeks ago myself. Whoah! It's sweet. There's a couple of grainy shots in there but otherwise it's the best I've ever seen this movie look.

Get the Region 3 MGM version


it is the director's cut and is remastered with those scenes. MGM has done the movie a terrific justice and to boot its NTSC so you won't need to worry about PAL speedup etc..,


here is a comparison with the R1 vs R3 version
