[quote=“Provvidenza, post:6, topic:2372”]Was bored so I compared the new US VCI Entertainment Minnesota Clay DVD to the others I have on a widescren tv:-
The Spaghetti Western Collection - Diamond Entertainment - 5 disc 13 film set US NTSC English audio only
Movie version - Italian Titles, sad ending only
Picture quality - widescreen letterboxed, when watched in “cinema mode” (like anamorphic) some poor definition due to compression to fit 3 films on the same side of the disc.
Extras: none (except 12 other films)
VCI Entertainment - US NTSC English audio only
Movie version - New English titles, sad ending - interestingly it has a spoken intro at the start of the movie, about how poorly prisoners were treated, not heard this intro before
Picture quality - anamorphic but very grainy and looks as though you are viewing the movie through a slightly dirty window?
Extras - happy ending non-anamorphic, US trailer anamorphic, Any Gun Can Play trailer non-anamorphic
SPO Entertainment - Japan NTSC English and Italian audio, Italian and Japanese subs
Movie version - Italian titles, happy ending
Picture quality - widescreen letterboxed but very good quality, even when viewed in “cinema mode” (like anamorphic) no loss of quality evident.
Extras - video 4:3 of original English titles and sad ending, US trailer widescreen letterboxed, posters, info in Japanese etc
No English friendly PAL version available :([/quote]
So you’d rate the SPO one as the best?
