1.0 out of 5 stars One star for the NON 16:9 anamorphic DVD, 21 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is simply to warn others that have a 16:9 T.V that this DVD has been formatted for 4:3 televisions, as in it's still the 2:35 origional aspect ratio but 'shrunk down' for non widescreens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film, Bad 4:3 transfer, 7 Sept. 2009
As other reviewers have already said, this is a great film but this special edition (and most probably the other editions) have been made for 4:3 TVs, which is a poor choice, as according to amazon this DVD was realsed in 2006.

Just to clarify, the origional aspect ratio of 2.20 : 1 or 2.35 : 1 has NOT been altered and the picture and sound quality (which have both been remastered) looks and sounds fantastic BUT if you watch this on a 16:9 TV it will look very 'small' in terms of screen height.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT FOR 16:9 TVS!, 31 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Taxi [1998] [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is made for 4:3 tvs, the problem is it's a widescreen (2.35 : 1) film that's been 'shrunk down' to fit on a non widescreen.

This doesn't make sense as most DVD players can be changed to play on eiter 4:3 or 16:9 tvs.

The film hasn't been cropped or squashed but it is very small in terms of screen height.
