Im just wonder which LD of Jurassic Park is the one to own.
I currently own [41829] but have been thinking if there is a better release picture wise other than Hi-Vision release.
At a guess i would assume the Jap CAV edition?

Someone else will know more than me about this movie, but I'd be surprised if any of them looked much different from one another. That was a movie released during LD's biggest period so it never had a muddy mono blurry badly cropped rotting Laservision release or anything like that. All the JP versions are going to use the same master as the US ones, I'd assume, except with subtitles. JP editions are usually only better video-wise if it was something initiated by the Japan side, like THX 1138 or Leon. A movie like Star Trek Generations or Speed is going to be the same in either market.


The sound does vary a lot though, since there are Surround, Dolby Digital, and DTS releases.

So would not even be much of a difference between CAV and CLV releases?

Not enough that I've noticed to justify all the extra side changes!

In theory, if your player is perfectly aligned, there shouldn’t be any difference in video quality between a CAV and a CLV version of the same thing. In reality though...sometimes it seems like CAV looks better. I don’t have a ton of movies where I have both CAV and CLV versions and they used the same master. In general I wouldn’t really get CAV unless you wanted to really study the movie frame by frame or if there is other additional content which is sometimes the case with early Criterion, for example. By the time Jurassic Park came out CAV was much less common that it was in like 1985 or so.

There are very few DTS CAV releases from what I can recall.

Cheers.

re CAV/CLV - at the beginning of each side they're the same, but the further you go into a CAV side the faster the linear velocity of the pickup, and the RF bandwidth of the signal improves, and the noise along with it. I've found a few dB improvement between outer-CAV and CLV.

I have one Sony (Japan) demo disk with both CAV and CLV sides of the same content, but the mastering is different enough to prevent a perfect comparison :P

But really, if you're worried that much about such things just look for a Blu Ray and be done with it ;)

this is by far the best release in terms of packaging Jurassic Park (1993) [PLFMD 32701]
:clap: :mrgreen:

Bloody chunder, it’s ozzy PAL though.

I don’t own this movie and kind of would like to so I guess I just need the DTS or AC3 version? I’m not really interested in bonus stuff since honestly I don’t really care that much about this movie.

I have the DTS which I've kept. I think it might be somewhat better than the box set one that I had. I only got the PAL version because of its looks and packaging. It wasn't terribly expensive even with the shipping.

Excellent. I’ll get the DTS one because I’m never going MUSE.

Same for me.

It's just a shame that the DTS Gatefold has a mouth opening facing toward the inside of the gatefold...
Therfore making it extra difficult to pull the discs out without damaging the gatefold. Dumb idea.
Never had any other gatefolds like this one.

Ha! Yeah, looking at the prices I think I’ll just get the DD release.

Is there anything particularly different about the DTS mix or is it just a matter of spec?
