The Cruise was shot on ntsc. PAL at 25 fps is closer to films 24 fps, in fact when transferred to 35mm, its transferred frame to frame, and a 4% decrease results, but it's so small its not noticeable. NTSC uses 30fps, so every fifth frame is discarded in the transfer to film process, which can lead to a 'stuttering' effect in scenes with motion. PAL has a little better resolution, but it's not a big factor.
