This review is from: Judge Dredd [DVD] (DVD)
The box has WIDESCREEN across the top , 2.35:1. This is a LIE. In this day and age, just about most people have a WIDESCREEN tv and you'd expect something marked WIDESCREEN would be a perfect fit on a 16:9 TV. Unfortunately this disc is manufactured by MONKEYS who cant tell the difference between 16:9 and 4:3. Honestly the technical ability of the outfit bringing you this movie could fit on the head of a pin. Its actually a 2.35:1 picture in a 4:3 frame ( Whatever the hell that works out to be when expanded to 16:9) , so anybody with a widescreen tv has to expand the picture to its fullest extent to get the right shape, which also means you get the LOWEST definition that way. This might seem like I'm making a big deal about nothing , right? Or you can look at it from the angle of, " I've been sold a defective product that should have been scrapped at manufacture, and they're lying to me ON THE COVER ". The Movie gets 3 stars , The DVD presentation gets (minus)-5 stars. Dont waste your money on this or wait until some other distributor remasters it and does it properly.......

They say widescreen, they never said anamorphic. It's a widescreen presentation, as in it's a widescreen movie, letterbox.

Mr. M. P. Adams says:
if you are after the ideal version of this, try to track down the region 3 version (austrailan) which has it in proper widescreen as we would expect it these days 2:35:1 and not annoyingly cropped like the region 1 and region 2 releases. maybe now a new dredd film is on its way they will release this on dvd again with a proper transfer, and uncut hopefully
