Clerks Anamorphic In Korea

I was checking out the Spectrum website when I saw they had released a Kevin Smith boxset.

Not sure which is the correct cover.

In the description, they listed Clerks as being anamorphic. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up. This is listed on both the Spectrum website and the Koreandvds website.

I guess it is buy at your own risk.

I'm holding out for the R1 10th Anniversary DVD release (which hopefully will be later this year, maybe 2005???), which is at least going to be 2 or more discs.

My guess would be both are the correct cover and one is the cover of the DVD and the other is what the slipcase looks like.

As I told Bill in private...I'd watch out with Spectrum. They have a spotty record at best.

Actually, one cover is one side of the box, the other is the other side of the box.

The box says anamorphic and I'd trust Spectrum. Biggest problem I have with the set is that Chasing Amy is not the same as the Criterion DVD.

Anamorphic? The film was shot on 16mm which is full frame. How can it be anamorphic?

Amazon says the R1 Clerks is widescreen letterbox, the Joblo review says it's anamorphic. It was probably cropped to 1:85:1 like Evil Dead was.
