SilverWook said:As the theatrical is being discussed on another forum, I was wondering if the Netflix version is 99% theatrical except for the lighting shot? You didn't find any other DC crap sneaking in? Just want to get my facts straight.
As far as I can work out, the Netflix version (on my UK netflix service at least) is basically the TC but with the DC grade. Colour/brightness wise it is 100% the DC. So a third/a half (?) of the scenes have been digitally darkened a lot, that lighting shot has been brightened to an insane level and some scenes (such as the finale beach sequence) obviously lack the warm tinting of the TC. Don't let anybody tell you the brightness differences are due to it being a different scan, of a different print. It's the same scan, down to the pixel.
But unlike some other hybrid streaming versions I haven't noticed any cropping (most of the DC has been cropped). It looks like DVD quality to me (but compressed). You'd be better just buying the TC DVD (which is a great transfer). IIRC correctly, the itunes TC version is true HD (but compressed for streaming) but is also colour/brightness, 100% the DC.
Bottom line is, if you don't much care about the grade/brightness being accurate, then all versions are more or less the TC. If they don't have the comic panels, you are going to have a good time.
