I was wondering whether there is any visible difference between Region 1 and Region 2 movies. Region 1 is encoded in 23.976 fps standard, right? And Region 2 is 25 fps.
But as I assume the movies are shot in 23.976 only, the R2 releases are just some convert/recode to be compatible with the region.
Which ultimately leads me to a question: If presented with a movie playing from R1 and R2 discs simultaneously, can a trained eye see any difference?
I know for a fact an eye can see the difference between 23.976 fps and 25 fps. A lot of low-budget movies/web series are being released lately since the Canon dSLRs can record video and there definitely is a visible difference between the standard 24 film fps and the "fluid, unnatural" 25 fps.
