Ok, I think I can guess what is happening. Film is usually 24 fps. Maybe they think that is close enough to PAL 25 fps to just ignore the discrepancy, causing it to run 25/24 = 1.04 times speed (4% faster). Converting 24 fps to NTSC 30 fps requires complex interpolation, and they do it with algorithms that preserve running time.

Something like that. Though in that particular case the NTSC is 4% slow and the original source is PAL not film.

It clearly all gets very messy.

That actually makes sense. There may be a standard system for converting 24 fps film to 30 fps NTSC video. If they feed 25 fps PAL video into a film->NTSC system it would pack 24 frames into one second instead of 25, causing it to run at 24/25 speed, 4% slower. Perhaps PAL->NTSC is a niche market and production companies make do with the 24->30 system rather than get a dedicated system for PAL sources.

     The Criterion looks a little better to me, so I'm glad I got it.

Last night with some friends at the Cinematheque.

It's a silly film, but it's beautifully designed, with an excellent score. Looks great on a big screen.

The Golden Coach by Jean Renoir.

More than anything a warm and affectionate hug for the theatrical tradition. Symbolism and well choreographed satire both abound, there are fine individual performances - notably that of Magnani - and a soundtrack featuring Vivaldi. It's all fittingly presented in the rich colours of cinematic period contemporaries (Singin' in the Rain, Moulin Rouge, An American in Paris etc) just before the flexibility of Kodak put paid to the near monopoly of Technicolour. A pleasure to revisit.

Bridge on the River Kwai

Seen it before of course, but not in ages. It holds up very well. The score isn’t great.

Hi Karl - hope that you are still improving daily!  But I cannot remember if you ever bought the BD below on the Criterion label?  Dave :)

Cheers,  Dave! I greatly enjoy that Criterion Blu-ray.

And thanks!

     I'm over 6' tall, and weigh over 200 lbs. That makes me a big Taika Waititi fan.

Exactly! So you liked it?
It is a fun, eye-candy-offering superhero movie that makes fun of itself, and its genre, which is something that Taika Waititi is very good at. See What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople for other great examples of his style.
