I was looking at a dvd comaprison site (michaeldvd) and notice that for several films it suggests getting the pal version as the transfer would be better. Is this a well known fact or personal opinion of the writer? I notice on American Pie 2 r1 that the picture is not particularly bright. Thought it was just the film, can't say I have noticed it on others but at this time do not have a lot to go by. Would be useful to know for future orders when deciding on DTS etc.
