for a starter, "-vf crop 720:480:0:0" 
does nothing if you have a ntsc dvd that 
already is 720x480. To remove the 
telecined frames, you have to use "-vf 
pullup,softskip", otherwise mencoder 
will just drop frames at random to keep 
the fps. If you still have some 
interlaced frames left when using pullup 
you can add the pp=l5 filter as well. It 
won't remove the frames, but at least it 
will make them less apparent.
