: >>Oh, golly...they were so obvious even Mark asked what was wrong. I wonder if it is a damaged dvd or just the player problem again...but then again, there WAS that apology for those jerky movements included, so I'm guessing they ARE there, and you were so impressed with the sound & clarity of picture that you just didn't notice them. Let me tell you though, that watching this movie with practically NO dramatic sound at all has a profound impact on one's enjoyment. Maybe all the other things I disliked will fade away when I get to see it with the REAL sound.
I read somewhere that the jerky movements may be the result of computer interpolation of frames that may have been in need of restoration. Perhaps the stuff that was not previously in the film was not taken care of to the degree the theatrical film version was.
Also, I know that the DVD was edited on *video* rather than by splicing film, which may also explain some things about the quality.
