DVD Talk review of 'Gattaca'

I read Aaron Beierle's DVD review of Gattaca at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=912 and...

BEWARE !!!!THIS DVD IS NOT WIDESCREEN, the theatrical release was but this dvd is a Full screen pan and scan (1:33:1)

Anyone know if the superbit suffers from pan&scan as well?

The SB I have is 2.35:1 so shouldn't be a problem. And I believe the budget re-release of Gattaca is only 1.33, the original DVD release had a 2.35:1 presentation also.

These two releases are widescreen:

This release is not widescreen (well, in typical Columbia/Tri-Star fashion, some early copies may have been, but they would be very much the exception and the buyer should beware greatly):

That's pretty fucking stupid not to release a movie in widescreen

The Superbit looks great, by the way.

Agree. Wonderful picture quality. I also believe it's around $10.00 at Best Buy too. I saw a bunch of Superbit DVD's there recently around that price.
