1.85:1 BD's play in that exact ratio on my TV. You guys need to make sure you don't have screen size on full. It should be on dot by dot.

Yeah it's not perfect but you can tell the print is better than the bluray. Just look at the overall image, it looks real. The bluray looks like a video copy. I saw the same difference with the Back...
