4:3 Aspect ratio spoils enjoyment on flatscreen TV's,
This review is from: Sophie Scholl - The Final Days  [DVD] (DVD)
Whilst an incredible movie which I enjoyed thoroughly, I was disappointed to find that this version is in 4:3 letterbox form which only uses about half of my widescreen TV's screen space.Thus detail is lost, and reading the subtitles is made more difficult.
A version marketed by Zeitgeist in the USA is sold in 16:9 format which will make the film more enjoyable for those with widescreen TV's, and I shall be buying that version and giving this one away when it arrives.

Jonno old chap, posting irrelevant tripe twice doesn't make it any less irrelevant or any less tripe. If you have an issue with Amazon take it up with them because your gripe is irrelevant to the movie.

Johnno (note spelling) has performed a service to all viewers and should be applauded.
PV completely misses the point; Johnno's comment relates to the rather relevant matter of enhanced enjoyment of the movie and, most importantly, provides an alternative for those who would prefer full flat screen viewing.
Comments like his frequently put me off purchasing inferior product and I thank him for that in this instance. I too shall purchase the 16:9 version.

Mr pv- I would like you to know that I found Johnno's comments on the technical nature of this dvd very useful. (I would also like you to know that I disliked the tone of your own comments.)

Don't you mean TVs? why the apostrophe?
