Battle Royale comparison UK R0 vs. HK R3

I have the non-anamorphic R3 NTSC and the anamorphic PAL R0 UK version. Here's a screen shot comparison. What do you think? Guess which is which.

capture 1

capture 2

Easy..

Capture 1 is too dark, so that's must be the tartan release.
It's also not letterbox.

Interesting... they both have the blueish tint...

Capture 2: Tartan

I knew that bottom one was too light to be the R3 disc. My Tartan discs have the same softness as that bottom pic although I dont own the Tartan release of Battle Royale.

Did you crop the R3 image (cap 1)? Cuz that looks more like an anamorphic capture than the second capture. I have the R3 version and I don't recall it looking that sharp (as cap 1). Looks like a trick question to me. I prefer Capture 1, but it sounds like you're saying it's the R3 DVD and I don't remember it being all that sharp. I'll have to dig it out again to watch.

Just for an opposing view, I've bought all of their Bergman titles released so far and have no problem with any of them. Most of them are downright stunning, in fact. I do, however, own their disc of The Idiots and will say it leaves much to be desired, although unfortunately it's the only uncensored version available on DVD with English subtitles.
