I finally got hold of an official DVD of MARS - GOD OF WAR, one of my favorite PEPS and was ready to ditch the VHS copy to oblivion but then I watched it and in many parts it's so damn dark, you can't see anything. Does anyone who makes these transfers even watch the film they just printed? Seriously, the VHS is fuzzy and the image wobbles and the sound buzzes but at least we can see something. In the "bright" scenes the sharpness of the DVD wins hands down but the DVD is way too dark. And, just a note, except for the fist example with Roger Browne, the other screenshots of the DVD were taken from a rip that I brighten. The first screenshot, with Roger, shows how dark it is directly from the DVD.

I'm keeping my VHS copy.
