Cala, My Dog! - R2J vs. R3HK

Post by Lourdes »

R2J is progressive
R3HK is interlaced

NOTE: The R3HK is letterboxed so I cropped off the bars before the resize.


R2J Top, R3HK Bottom

R2J of course, it still doesn't look that great but I reckon that's down to the source materials.
Both have the same translation.

Has the HK DVD had DNR applied to it?

I prefer the overall look of the HK DVD but seeing as it's non-anamorphic and interlaced it will look much worse on a TV screen.

More like Digital Quality Removal really. No detail left because they've filtered it all out along with the lovely grain.

Thanks. I've not heard of that phrase before. Yeah the detail removal is annoying.

hey,

I just like to add that I looooved this film. Got turned on to Lue Xuechang directing after THE MAKING OF STEEL but this is the highlight so far. Satire, droll comedy, a ticking clock movie structure (centered around a dog! :D) and a family drama too! A full plate.

Thanks for the comparison.

I've only seen it the one time myself and that was many, many movies ago. It was one of the first Asian films I saw and has stuck in my mind. You describe it just as I remember it, it really does cover just about everything.
