Incredibles: Wide or Full?

I know that for Finding Nemo, Pixar re-rendered the film so that (as I understand it) fullscreen was a more complete viewing than widescreen.

Does anyone know if that's the case for the Incredibles?

WRONG! The picture was re-rendered so that things would not be chopped off, not so it would be a "more complete viewing." OAR is 2.35:1. Anything less is unacceptable.

I got fullscreen. I was in Walmart and they had the widescreen one playing and they use these black bars that cover the picture. I didn't like it, I want to use my whole screen.

What he sad. The fullscreen version was modified so things are less chopped up, but compared to the original way the movie was presented, it's still chopped up. Get the widescreen version of both films.

And before anyone gets their hackles up, Groucho is "joking."

Yeah, I don't know what mroe complete viewing is supposed to mean. They jsut rerendered so that it wouldn't be all choped off by moving characters over a little. Tehy've done this since I believe A Bug's Life.

But OAR is still the way to go.

I wish to hell Pixar would never have started doing this as it only confuses people. If they'd only watch the bit on the A Bug's Life disc about what Pixar does, they'd realize a lot of times they just added sky and ground to the top and bottom of the image, and many times, they admitted they just panned and scanned it!

This is a beautiful widescreen image, please do the right thing.

Full screen dvds should not be available for widescreen movies. The black bars are there so get used to them or get a widescreen tv.

I have been here for 9 months, and have yet to see Groucho post something that was not sarcastic.

Sarcasm is hard to understand to some people. Even to whom English is their native tongue.

sarcasm is also hard to notice when one does not leave some sort of emoticon.

I can't wait until the day comes where people who buy fullscreen DVDs finally buy a widescreen TV and wonder what's wrong.

I guess I bought a "fullscreen" version.

My TV is 16x9. It fills my screen.

Fullscreen and widescreen have no meaning anymore, I don't know why folks/studios still insist on this terminology.

Yes "fullscreen" is a meaningless term today now that there are so many widescreen 16x9 tvs out there. But The Incredibles DVD does not FILL THE SCREEN of even a 16x9 widescreen TV. Its 2.35:1 so there are black bars even on a 16X9 set.

Box claim is actually 2:39:1 and then there is the "Enhanced for 16x9 Televisions" spec.

You obviously are correct with the bars. I did not even notice them when I first watched the DVD; just now had to check that (I guess that shows how much they really ever/never bothered me).

well most widescreen transfers nowadays are also anamorphic so even if you have a square tv, it should fill fairly well although it will be stretched vertically. but hey, all that matters to those people is to fill the screen they could care less about the stretch I'm sure.

Studios should just stop making FS to appease those who don't understand / care about OAR, period.

And some people understand sarcasm just fine. It's just that some people are bad at conveying sarcasm in their posts.
