    After finding out that "Jackass" was taken directly from the 30fps video source it was shot on and not from film as it was presented in theaters, I've gotten a lot more cautious about recent documentaries (I have to see them EXACTLY as they were shown in theaters, so this is not acceptable.) The Ron Jeremy documentary did play briefly in a few theatres but I missed it; I imagine some parts of it were shot on video though. Is the DVD made entirely from a film print, or from a video source?

    So, you prefer something that has been degraded through two conversion processes to the original source material? Had it occured to you that the only reason it's on film in the first place is because it's the only compromise compatible with 99% of the theaters in America?

    I would kill for a direct-from-video transfer of the Blair Witch Project to the video-to-film-to-video garbage transfer that currently exists.

    I'd kill for a direct-from-video edition of The Groove Tube and Tunnelvision also, but not to replace the film versions. "Blair Witch Project" would have been different atmospherically had they used the video footage straight from video rather than from the film print. I wouldn't want to see Bug's Life or Monsters Inc in 30 frames-per-second either.

    I'm an advocate of OTFS (Original Theatrical Frame Speed) [​IMG]
    So does anyone know about this disc?
