Help! Problem with Ronin DVD!

I have a 50" Hitachi RPTV(not widescreen), with a Pioneer DV-414 hooked up. I also have a Pioneer DVD-120 DVD-ROM on my computer..

With the Ronin DVD in, I get this:

4:3 side of DVD:


16:9 side of DVD:


I used WinDVD to capture these, but it also happens as well on the DV-414. I talked to 2 friends with the DVD, and both said they don't have that problem.

It appears that the "16:9" picture is actually the 4:3, but zoomed in and black bars added.

Does ANYONE else have this problem? Am I missing a setting? What's going on?!

Is this an error with the disc? I pre-ordered this disc before it came out, so it was the first pressing. Did MGM screw up the first pressing of it or something?

Looks to me like it was shot in Super35, in 4:3 you get more on top and bottom and in 16:9 you get more on the sides. Just like with Air Force One

I was about to say the same thing. Ronin in fact was shot in Super-35.

This page illustrates Super-35 (with pics): http://widescreen.org/aspect_ratios.shtml

Nothing wrong with your DVD.

Just to re-iterate the widescreen image is the correct one. The extra space you see on the full-screen version is not what the director intended you to see. Widescreen is the OAR (Original Aspect Ratio)

Mark another positive for widescreen. The shot is totally different in mood from the 4:3 to the 16:9. SCHWEET!

Widescreen yes, and if I have to I will stretch those 1.33:1 concerts, to make the widest screen possible. LOL
