Movie Reviews

Package incorrectly identifies all movies as anamorphic
Chad Fleming | Decatur, GA | 03/02/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased both this volume and Volume I from a local bricks and mortar store after I saw the labels indicating that the packaged DVDs contained widescreen anamorphic (a.k.a. "Enhanced for 16x9 televisions") and Dolby Digital 5.1 versions of The English Patient, Il Postino, and Shakespeare in Love. Sadly, 'tis not true. I don't know whether the false labeling on the packaging was accidental or intentional but it appears that Miramax has simply packaged the same crappy widescreen (non anamorphic) DVD versions of these movies that I've been refusing to buy for several years now. Needless to say, all of the movies are going back tomorrow. As far as I know, Il Postino and The English Patient are STILL only available in a matted widescreen format. Only Shakespeare in Love is available in an anamorphic widescreen format. If you only own a 4x3 format T.V. you probably won't notice a difference - until you upgrade to a 16x9 set. Then, like me, you'll never buy a "fullscreen" or matted/widescreen DVD again."
