yea but how many of these would there be? Like almost none. So why would it be worth doing?

I wonder, is this the first case where something 4:3 is cropped up to 16x9?

I'm glad they remastered both version. I recall a thread a while back stating the only remastered version would be the 16x9.

Add shipping to this price and itíll basically be the same price Best Buy would sell it for.

No, they did the same thing to Super Speedway IMAX. I think a few other IMAX titles may have it. It's also done to all 2.35 movies on HDHBO.

maybe "enhanced" 16:9 means they added animation to both sides of the original 4:3 version? besides, doesnt everyone have a WS yet?

no doubt. Ninja Scroll is a great animated flick. The art is just dripping with the style that most anime fans dig... really high quality stuff no matter what the aspect ratio is.

I'll bet that it just means anamorphic widescreen, which is better than P+S full frame on any TV.

Besides, I've got a Toshiba 50HX81 which is 16X9 and I'm far from Joe Caviar. If you are going to buy a new TV these days, there are many, many 16X9 sets that are affordable. It's not exactly rare anymore.

Yea but in this case the oar IS full frame. So it's anamorphic P+S widescreen, which is just as bad as P+S full frame.

The DVD for the miniseries IT is in 16:9, while it was originally shown in 4:3.

Anchor Bay's "Book of the Dead" edition DVD of the Evil Dead crops the 4:3 frame to an anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 transfer. There's some debate over this, since Evil Dead was initially filmed for theatres, but has been available in a "director approved" open-matte 4:3 transfer for decades.

Does anyone else think that a $34.95 SRP is pretty steep for what this release consists of? I was really looking forward to this one too, but now I'm not so sure.

First thing I've ever agreed with you on.

Manga hasn't impressed me very much with their DVDs so far, so I hope that they surprise me and do a great job with this DVD (it sounds like it will be very nice anyway ). Still, I'll wait for the reviews before I pick this one up.

I'm surprised they didn't go for a 2-disc set instead of a flipper.
