Evita DVD (Korean vs Italian)?

Koreandvds.com shows two different DVDs; one looks to be true anamorphic but doesn't have DTS coming out 3/3/04 and the other looks to be "fake" widescreen but has DTS.

The Italian DVD appears to be both anamorphic and have DTS.

Am I reading the specs right?

Thanks.

Why do you think that the $4 version is true anamorphic and the other not? Just curious.

both versions show as letterboxed 16:9 so 99% certain it's non-anamorphic

Screen : Letter Box 16:9, NTSC

there are other threads in which 16:9 is used synonymously as anamorphic such as Non Region 1 Exclusive DTS & 16:9 International Movie Database

so, am I correct in understanding that if a DVD is described as 16:9 then it's anamorphic and if it's Letterbox 16:9 then it isn't?

16:9 means 16:9. It means anamorphic. That's it. Don't read any more into it.

If it says Widescreen 4:3, although it is rare, THAT means that it's non-anamorphic.

And then other times, it'll say 16:9 and it's actually non-anamorphic but that's rare enough. Check here before buying anything.

I'm not sure about this other version of Evita. I'm probably going to pick it up since I had some other movies I wanted to get from Koreandvd's and I love giving them my money. Hell, it's $4. Might as well right?

I already have the DTS one and the delay is VERY annoying. Not worth the purchase.
