Army of Darkness Video Comparison
There are now seven versions of Raimi and Campbells epic, Army of Darkness on DVD and therefore a lot of people are interested in ...
If you wish to download the larger images then please click here. They are in JPEG form to reduce the size slightly, but with little compression (15% - Paint Shop Pro 7 JPEG) used. The file is a little over 1Mb in size. You will require WinRAR to uncompress it (you can download WinRAR from here).As you can see from the above, unfortunately the director's cut versions of the film are quite soft with a lot lighter colouring. Also, some of the print is cropped out for some reason. This would make the theatrical version the way forward with its superior transfer, however you then miss out on the extra footage and the alternative ending. This leaves one option: the R2 Anchor Bay 2 disc since both versions are included, its relatively cheap when compared to the R1 versions which is supposedly the same except the R2 has a DTS-ES 6.1 audio track on the theatrical version. Look for a full review in the next day or two.
