Lmao frame rate rates, that is the biggest amount of crap i ever heard, FR does not make a film any longer and espically not a extra 29 mins! thats basically saying if i put a blu ray in 24p mode then that extends the film time to viewing it normally....soooo not true!
B.Jones - you say that frame-rates don't make a film longer. Actually, and although this doesn't apply to Blu-Rays, they do!
Cinema films run at 24 frames per second. DVD's run at 25 frames per second. Thus, for every hour of cinema footage, you lose about 4 minutes on the DVD in terms of running time, once that film has been transferred to a PAL DVD! (NTSC DVD's also run at 24 frames per second, so there should be no noticeable or significant running time differences between a cinema print and a US NTSC-formatted DVD disc.)
Blu-Rays, though all play at 24 frames per second, irrespective of which country the disc is from, or where the disc is manufactured. So, the running times of a film, should be the same on a Region A (US) disc as those on a Region B (UK) disc. However, it also depends on what company logos appear at the start of a film, as different ones on one film print (say, a US release) to ones on the UK print, can affect a running time too. However, this kind of inequality is rare.
