Ok. I've seen this many times. Like, why Cinerama movies are released on DVD in 2.35:1 and such? Last night, I was watching The Racers on Fox Movie Channel. Then at the end, the black bars were bigger for the end titles. And I'm like WTF? I just watched something that's NOT in OAR!!! So, I was pretty disappointed. I just watched part of a movie that has the OAR of 2.55:1, but was cropped to 2.35:1! Now what the heck is up with that? Why are some movies being cropped like that? I watched It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World on TCM in it's OAR. But, the DVD is in 2.35:1. Now this is rediculous. If you're gonna go watch or buy an old movie on DVD, you better make damn sure that aspect ratio that's listed on there IS the OAR and not some cropped garbage.
