: I have a question for the videophiles out there. We only bought our copy of LOTM about 2 months ago, and at the time, I didn't realize there were several versions out there. In reading through the discussions of the new DVD, there's been so much talk about the THX version, and the improvement from the standard VHS version. I've checked the tape inside and out and can't find any THX label, but all the things you've talked about not being able to see in the dark scenes are easily seen in ours. There are about 18 Indians following the party as they approach FWH, and the scene is so light it almost looks like they're in daylight. This is the Premier Edition/Wide Screen. Does anyone know if this is THX? All our other THX videos we own have it clearly marked, but this one does not. Thanks. YRH
Hi, NightSky...if your video came in a plastic hinged box, with the trailer & a featurette included, it is the wide-screen, THX version. I don't know of any other LOTM video that is THX. My picture is, like yours, plenty bright enough to see the Ottawa, etc, and even in the dark scenes, for the most part, visibility is good. Not as crisp as the DVD, but still, very good. The sound is excellent, too.
