Hmm.... interesting. Thx for the info guys.

Some of the colors look a bit cool in some scenes and then warm in others. Granted these are screen shots.

I'm not convinced I like the extra height image. Doesn't seem to add enough to make it worth it.

I'm going to be ordering it this week and will see, but I may end up using the vertical stretch and my anamorphic lens to watch it in the OAR.

Has anyone else done this?

3D look better when it fill the screen and this is JC's reasoning for giving us the differing aspect ratio. Personally I think its the right way to go. Black bars top and bottom are a distraction that is hard to ignore when watching a 3D image

I agree w/ your point about the image looking better when it fills the screen, but what he did was reverse the original intent of it being a scope movie.

I don't want to see this become a trend where a movie is cut (or added to in this case) to appease the masses at home because all they have is a 16:9 screen.

If a movie was shown as a scope, it should remain that way.

At least he added to the image instead of taking away from it and cropping the sides off.

You can't restore the OAR on the Titanic 3D disc. Although most scenes have additional "open matte" picture info on the top and bottom that you can simply mask off, VFX shots and all of the footage of the submersible in the prologue and epilogue were cropped on the sides for the 16:9 transfer. By masking the top and bottom, you'll lose picture on all sides of the frame.

Those of us who have 2.35:1 Constant Image Height screens would disagree with you.

Agreed!

Regardless,if the AR change is done by the director, I may not like it but it's his/her prerogative.

That's a slippery slope that leads directly to William Friedkin's first purple-tinted edition of The French Connection. smile.gif

I don't disagree with you. Just like the craptastic "new" Star Wars. I hate it. It's because of that I still hang on to my "heads" LaserDisc.

Just watched this tonight.

AMAZING!!!

I saw it 3 times in the theater (in 2d) with my ex-wife.

Tonight I watched it in 3d in our new HT 181" (Stewart Cinecurve/JVC X95).

Watched first 30 mins in 16x9, then switched to 2.35 with the DC1 lens, it was even better! It looks like from the screen shots that the 3d version was made from open matte, so when we switched to 2.35, the lens masked it perfected to OAR.


The 3d was very well done (first 3d title we viewed in our HT), and i wish all discs looked this good.

You wouldn't lose left right info by going to a CIH mode, you'd lose top and bottom.

The movie looks great inm CIH mode.

Maybe I'll compare shots sometime.

Since you don't seem to want to scroll up to post #304, I will quote it again here:

VFX shots and all scenes inside the submersible are cropped on the sides in the 16:9 transfer. In case you hadn't noticed, the movie has a fair amount of VFX.

Ok, I guess I was only thinking in terms of what is there in the 16x9 version.

I was thinking you're only going to lose top and bottom, but you mean that we've already lost the sides from the conversion anyway.

I'm simply saying that you didn't notice it very much, if at all.

Unless you are intimately familar with the movie (like lets say I would with Star Wars), then you wouldn't notice anything at all.

In shots with VFX, and all scenes in the submersible, yes, unfortunately.
