This is as annoying as Warner releasing fullscreen only dvds of things that had been widescreen on laser. Artistic vision or not, these discs should be formatted for 16x9 televisions if the HD...

This isn't the case on this release. I'm 47 min into it and all the film footage is the same aspect ratio as the home video releases. It's most likely been replaced by better quality footage. If...

Even if the tv will display a PAL image, the player still has to be able to play it. A player with pal to ntsc conversion or a computer is the way to go.
