    Yet another film that I am afraid is a victim of digital video noise reduction. If you have this disc, take a look at the opening credits. There is breakup of the image resulting in a distracting movement of the titles. Another thought is that dvd reveals details not in the vhs, but the vhs does not do this.

    It's probably nothing more than Warner compressing the titles of the film at a much lower bitrate (which are generally static title cards anyway) to use those extra bits elsewhere for scenes with a lot of movement or detail. It seems to be standard practice on a lot of DVDs and I can't say it concerns me.
