Hey, guys,

Has anyone noticed a framing error on the movie Drive?

I purchased the DVD (sue me; I live in the late 90's) after loving a streaming rental.

Unfortunately, it didn't quite feel the same, and when I double checked, a significant portion of the DVD's frame is missing.



The red outline is copied from a DVD playing the video at time 1:33:57. The rest of the image is from an HD version of the video from iTunes. It turns out the whole DVD version is this way. That time is just the first moment I was certain something was wrong, instead of it just feeling different.

Is the video correctly framed on the BD version?

Is this an error, or is it intentional?

If it's an error, who on earth would I report it to?

Thanks so much!

(Also, this is my first post, so if I've put this post in the wrong section, please let me know; I'll be happy to move it. I saw other framing error reports in this section, so I thought it might be a good fit.)

Perhaps the itunes version is open matte? Some films have open matte versions for HDTV broadcasts.

The blu-ray is correct to what I saw in the cinema. I'm guessing the streaming version is open-matte; I don't think any digital cameras record in native scope aspect ratio so a little more image is recorded than ends up in the movie.

According to IMDB, the target aspect ratio for "Drive" is 2.35:1, so the DVD looks like it is being faithful to what the director intended. Consequently, I should imagine the Bluray will match the DVD for aspect ratio.

According to the nfo, rips of the European Bluray version are about 2.4:1

HDTV tends to cater for those who "hate black bars" on their 16:9 TV, so the other poster's suggestion that the HDTV broadcast is open matte is probably correct.

Hi Guys,

did anybody know if the "Drive"-UK-Blu (from ICON) has a 16- or 24Bit-Audio-Track?

Thanks.
