Hi just watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and what a transfer, but there is one big problem, it is framed wrong on Blu-Ray
I noticed the first time when Jack Sparrow fights Will Turner and Jack gets knocked out whit the bottle.
Then the guards comes crashing through the door and then Captain Norrington enters and stops in front of the drunken blacksmith who knocked Jack out and Norrington says his first line.
The two shot of Norrington and the drunken black smith is farmed all wrong, it is framed far to low and most of Norrington's head is "cut of" when he says his first line
Compared it with the standard dvd and it is framed correct, and you can see all of Norringtons head when he is standing in the two shot with the drunken blacksmith!!!
That sucks big time and it is not the only time this happens, but it is one of the worst places in the movie....
They made a mistake when they scanned the Super 35mm, they forgot to frame it correct, an unforgivable mistake
I can not believe that nobody noticed this big problem before ??????
Will post pictures when I have some time, and I want my money back or Disney should fix the issue!Update 1, I posted 3 different exsamples of the wrong framing;DVD

I think it's pretty obvious that the image from the blu-ray is indeed cropped from the center...
