Quite a shame that some vertical resolution has been lost on this Blu ray. No reviewers seem to have noticed this this either, one on "thedigitalbits" even complimented the ratio, unaware of the letterboxing!
All Blu-rays are 1920x1080, with letterboxing for wider aspect ratios. There is no such thing as anamorphic enhancement on Blu-ray.
