I wish somebody who owns the Blu-Ray would respond! I'm also wanting to upgrade my DVD, but the potential aspect ratio problem has me worried. If I remember right, my US DVD also has a problem in the aspect ratio, wherein you end up with black bars above/below AND on the sides. What were they thinking??? And now they may have screwed up the Blu-Ray also?
I may end up upgrading regardless, since the Blu-Ray is supposed to have Portuguese subtitles. This would be great since my wife and in-laws are from Brazil and I'm always looking for more Blu-Rays with Portuguese. Can you please confirm this on your copy? And hopefully it's Brazilian Portuguese.
