Can anybody tell me, please. What screen ratio for the Blu Ray edition of Carlito's Way? I have the dvd & it is very narrow. I was wondering if the the blu ray has a bigger ratio size. So I could replace it. Many thanks!
I think I have the same DVD as you, the first release of the DVD is NOT anamorphic, therefore it does appear narrow. The first release of Heat was also the same. Does your DVD have 'widescreen' written on the front of the box? The next DVD release is anamorphic and looks (fits) like other 16:9 / 2.35.1 films like Gladiator and The Departed. Also on the extra features comes with a brief making of. I've read some reviews of the Blu Ray, and here they say the film is presented 16:9 / 2.35.1 - if it isn't anamorphic, I'm pretty sure they would mention it, since there's so much importance on video quality for HD movies.
