2.0 out of 5 stars Why go to all the trouble and then no Widescreen?, 29 Sep 2006
This review is from: Europa [1991] [DVD] (DVD)
Why does Tartan Video continue to get the rights to these great films for DVD release, do a great job at cleaning the prints, good transfer, then chop up the frame? WHY?! This is a great film, never before released on DVD, Tartan was ahead of the pack, I was excited, then the big let down. I saw this when it first came out and the scope and framing never been more essential in a film than this one, and Tartan dropped the ball badly. And they continue to do so with other great films. Maybe is just the British market over all, for some reason, most of the distributors like to put ALL films on 1.77:1 Anamorphic WS regardless of the original aspect ratio. Eureka putting our Kwaidan, another beautiful 2.35:1 AR movie, cropped to 1.77:1, WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?! I say hold out, don't encourage these people. Rent it if you have to, but buying it would only supports this awful behavior.
