Hey folks, I searched for Kwai related threads and couldn't find any. Anyway, I recently purchased the LE of Bridge on the River Kwai and noticed some really odd authoring. The most obvious thing (that I've seen mentioned in reviews) is that the two layers of the feature are actually split across two titles, rather than just a layer change. This makes a longer than normal pause halfway through the film, which lots of people have noticed. The other odd thing I noticed was that, when playing it in my new DVD player (a DVP-642) was that the film glitched several times throughout. It turns out that the movie jumps to a different title, then back to the main feature, many times -- sometimes just for a few seconds, sometimes for half a minute or so. It is a truely bizarre authoring, and for some reason the DVP-642 couldn't handle it (it can handle branching discs, like The Abyss, just fine, and has very seamless layer changes). If anyone owns the disc (the single disc is probably the same way), check out titles 3, 4, 5 and 6 on their own... it is very strange. Does anyone know why on earth Kwai is authored this way? Does it have to do with the DVD-ROM features?
