    NTSC and PAL versions of the same film will never have the same running time regardless of any cuts made by the censor. PAL video has to be speeded up by 4% when it's created from film. NTSC also has to be speeded up but it's less than 1%.

    The 4% speed up of PAL raises the pitch of the sound and the speed up of NTSC causes stuttering pans (3:2 pulldown). Neither is perfect.

    I always go for NTSC but that's my preference.

    :confused:

    You mean slow down? Going from 24 to 23.976fps

    The picture quality on R2 releases are starting to get better than R1. The extra resolution is paying off now that compression artifacts are less of a problem due to better encodeing/filtering.
