Do you think it hasn't been stretched ?
Now i get that some shots in the movie are meant to show barrel pin cushion type distortion which you can do to pictures in photoshop such as the scene when he is looking into the mirror and being filmed but thats a totally different thing to stretching the image as the still shots on this page show.
I don't want to buy films on a high definition format which are baked with DNR or EE or now stretching of the image.....They should have just released it as 1.66:1....Here's a radical idea....Make a new master and spend some money on these catalogue titles.
I am dismayed that you would say there isn't major issues with this transfer and instead seem to be taking a stance against everyone who says there is.
It costs me money to buy these things so don't be surprised if i get a little annoyed when they try and fob us off with such rubbish....If it wasn't for AVS i would have spent countless sums of money on transfers which were real bad.
Would you add EE to your HD video productions or stretch the image hoping no one would notice ? I think not.
If you are a film fan then things like this matter to you....Quality control matters....The thought of a studio treating it's customers with contempt like this makes me question what else they will do to save a few bucks. Indeed isn't this the type of thing which demands a recall...For Event Horizon if it too has been stretched and any others which might have this issue.
