This disc is available as a PAN & SHAM/CROPPED release in Hong Kong (R3) that was advertised as anamorphic widescreen. It isn't.

However, a Korean Region 3 DVD is now out and the box art says Anamorphic Widescreen. However, reports are it is the same DVD as the Hong Kong release. It has the same cover art, but with "Anamorphic Widescreen" at the bottom.

Can anyone confirm this? I don't mean with another rumor. But a solid YES or NO that this is anamorphic widescreen?

http://www.dvdasian.com/cgi-bin/dvdasian/11453 DVDasian.com carries this title.

I am wondering if I should just wait for the Region 1 release, which will be from Columbia and uncut.

Are you sure of that? Columbia did one hell of a hack job on Once Upon A Time In China. The packaging listed the uncut version's running time but it was much, much shorter. Thank God for the HKL version.

That Columbia DVD has the uncut version. It has both. But the quality of the uncut version was terrible.

TIME & TIDE is playing in NYC and L.A. right now, through Columbia, and it is uncut.

No it doesn't. I owned it once and the movie ended after 1:40 instead of being over 2 hours.

Yes it does. I just checked mine. It has the 2:14 subtitled version and the 1:40 dubbed version.

About Time & Tide, Poker says this their website: Though the sleeve states: "Anamorphic video", "Full Screen Presentation", and "Widescreen version", this DVD contains only a Fullscreen version so I'd beware.

gotdvd, I don't want to get insulting here, but you are 100% flat out wrong on this one. The Columbia DVD has BOTH versions and all you have to do is check out reviews at dvdfile.com or other places to confirm this.

I recommend just holding out for the R1 release, at least that's what I'm going to do. I've been wanting to get this flick on dvd since I saw it last September, and now at least I'll get a second chance to see it while I wait for the dvd since it's now playing at a theatre here in Toronto.
