3.0 out of 5 stars Reframing the images from 4:3 to 16:9 works on some shots, but not on all of them, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thunderbirds: The Complete Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
As other reviewers of the Blu Ray set, I have mixed feelings about it. Although it is great to see a high definition transfer of this wonderful series, it is almost impossible to avoid noticing that cutting the top and the bottom of the original 4:3 frame to obtain a 16:9 frame is often detrimental to the composition of the shots.

Yes, on some shots like Thunderbird 2 fying it works because you just miss a few clouds, but on others, you clearly feel that the framing is not right and that you are missing elements of the shots.

I think is it sad that this controversial reframing method is not clearly announced. It shows a lack of respect for the customers. I had no idea that the series had been modified that way when I bought the set, because I simply could not imagine anyone treating a cult show like Thunderbirds with so little respect.

The very least would have been to present two versions of the episodes : the full frame original version and the reframed one. As it stands now, I feel cheated because the process shoud have been announced on the cover.
