Widescreen print of this old 70's classic


Turns out this isn't true afterall.

If this is the version I think it is, the MGM R1 print, this is the pan/scan print, cropped to the original AR, but not from the original negative. So its just f*cked up and has most of the picture missing :(

See the Phantasm IV thread which I've moved to lower quality because of this same thing.

If you own the DVD, you can send it back to MGM and they will give you the correct print of the movie.

No,it was a 16x9...it is not the other release as you stated. :wink:
I wouldn't have bothered if it was a 4:3 :lol:

Think you are thinking the R0 release over in UK.

They don't show the version I got though.

well I belive it is infact that dvd listed on the website regarding the class action law suit filed against MGM for falsely labelling its DVDs:
Quote:
A major legal controversy is swirling around MGM DVD copies with over 300 titles being affected by an aspect ratio problem. According to CHUD, claims have gone up that state MGM Home Video has been misleading about the films they're marketing as widescreen, rather cutting the top and bottom off of pan and scan transfers and billing it as widescreen, as the aspect ratio is still correct.

Amongst the titles that may have been affected are "1984", "24 Hour Party People", "The Amityville Horror", "Annie Hall", "Barbershop", "The Birdcage", "City Slickers", "The Dark Half", "Dead Man Walking", "Desperately Seeking Susan", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", "Dr. No", "Four Weddings & A Funeral", "From Russia With Love", "Goldfinger", "Gorky Park", "Hannibal", "The Hound of the Baskervilles", "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "The Island of Dr. Moreau", "Jeepers Creepers", "Mannequin", "Man in the Moon", "The Man with the Golden Gun", "Midnight Cowboy", "Mississippi Burning", "Mystic Pizza", "Phantasm", "Platoon", "Raging Bull", "Rain Man", "Scanners", "Shallow Grave", "Some Like it Hot", "Spaceballs", "The Terminator", "Wargames" and "Y Tu Mama Tambien".


http://www.mgmdvdsettlement.com/

List to the movies:
http://mgmdvdsettlement.com/eligible.php3


The region 0 release isn't an MGM print. I don't know what the validity of this lawsuit is, and MC is defending them to the hill it would seem @ scifi.dead-donkey.com , so no one is certain, but it does explain the situation on some of these titles regarding the overly zoomed picture. See the Phantasm IV thread.

I don't think we should start binning rips just because of some (unfounded so far) claims by some Americans (a nation that is very slow on the uptake of widescreen :lol:).

Besides, the caps look perfectly well framed. :wink:

I'm not defending them as such, and I have nothing to gain from doing so, I'm just not sure that the people doing the accusing have their facts right about how widescreen movies are displayed.

It's entirely possible they are correct, but my Phantasm 1 DVD looks fine.:)

Like I said at sci-fi, I could be wrong (but I never am! :lol: ).

Very true,
but then there's this
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/viewtopic.php?t=3344
Given that the Mosaic R2 release is actually pan/scan and not open matte, or at least it would be extremely different to the rest of their catalogue:
http://www.imdb.com/Sections/DVDs/Labels/Mosaic_Movies/

and here its confirmed to be pan/scan:
http://www.totaldvd.net/cgi-bin/dvdrevi ... tleid=1694
Quote:
but is let down by being trimmed from its original ratio to the 4:3 image provided on the disc.


So there is major validity behind the claims, so much show that I'm pretty sure I was dead wrong in my assumption there that it was open matte. Especially given that it now turns out its only ever been available as pan/scan, and never as open matte.

Anyway, I was just asking what DVD its from and that if you got it in the states, sign up to the law suit and you'll get a free DVD if it turns out to be true ;)

BTW, I haven't watched the movie yet, but I did scan through and it does seem a bit full in the frame if you ask me. Still doesn't seem too bad or anything.

Thx btw :lol:

Well,when I ripped it it spat out 16x9 in Dvd2avi...It seems like a widescreen to me...I have no doubt though that MGM is pulling this shit...I just don't think that it was done on this cut of the movie...might have been done on the Midnight classic version(See poster above)..But this one is definately widescreen and not 4:3 matte. :D
