Krippendorf's Tribe Rip-Off!

I know that some would say that the film itself is the rip-off however, whether you liked the film or not is immaterial. I happen to be a huge Dreyfuss fan so I had to pick this one up.

Anyway, The box says that the disc features an animorphically enhanced widescreen presentation.

Put the disc in and it's totally full-frame. I called the # on the DVD for quality control issues and they said...Oops, sorry. "That film was never released in its OAR in any version... We know that the label is incorrect"

This totally sucks.

Evidently, they have received other calls about this but have no desire to correct the packaging or inform the public of this screw-up.

Wow! That sucks!

Much worse than Disney mis-labeling the Indian Summer DVD as Full-Frame when it is, indeed, LBX. They almost lost my $$$ on that flub, but they don't feel like correcting the error either.

The sad this is that there will be some people who will find this to be a pleasant surprise.

LBX or 16x9? I've passed on Indian Summer because I thought it was MAR/non-16x9 also.

I thought this was going to be another 'insert' thread.

I was thinking of picking this up, but thankfully, I read the DVDTalk review first...
