Leo (2002).. anamorphic?

Anyone have this and can confirm whether or not it is anamorphic as there seems to be conflicting info?

http://www.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=16:V|||278240 OAR but non-anamorphic

http://www.dvdempire.com/Exec/v4_it...&item_id=589291 (anamorphic)

http://www.dvdempire.com/Exec/v4_it...91&tab=5&back=1 (back cover scan stating widescreen 4x3 letterbox)

http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/leo.php (anamorphic but reviewer stated they listed it as such based on IMDb's info rather than personal observation)

http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=14779 (non-anamorphic I'm guessing since it isn't addressed either way)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0308496/dvd (anamorphic)

I am going to make a fairly large assumption here as I have reviewed a few of this company's products and they always tend to incorrectly state the technical aspects. I believe that the disc is non-anamorphic!! As was this one...where they mentioned 1.78:1 as full screen...which may appear as such on widescreen TV's but in my opinion is clearly the incorrect way of describing it.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Would PowerDVD state whether something is anamorphic or not?

No, but it's easy to tell based on the shape of the window. PowerDVD will resize the window to nearly square if the DVD is non-anamorphic.

So the following screenshot would suggest it is indeed anamorphic then?

Oh, wait, you mean the actual PowerDVD window that opens when playing the DVD (assuming it isn't set to open maximized)? If so, then it definitely appears to be non-anamorphic as that window opens roughly square.

Never knew that was a method to determine whether or not something was anamorphic.
