    Re: The "Incorrect Aspect Ratio" Thread

    The aspect ratio for Bridget Jones Baby is incorrect. The OAR is 2:35 to 1, Vudu's version is 1:78 to 1.

      Re: The "Incorrect Aspect Ratio" Thread ... thank you and let's bring awareness here

      thank you to prk and all involved ... I'm new to streaming and love it but hate wrong aspects ... I want to help and anyone may contact me ... I used to contribute to dvdbeaver and own over 50,000 DVDs and Blu-ray ... I believe in the present and future of streaming and the hosts must be educated to the desires of the audience .... I was beginning to buy many films but stopped when I realized the danger of being ripped off too many times by radical deviations from the OAR ... some cropping is understandable perhaps but they must realise the original aspect means more sales by save collectors who will be the most active buyers ...
      btw I believe Google play/youtube does a much better job as far as I've seen in the few months I've been buying and Amazon is bad
      I wish the hosts like VUDU etc would list the ratio ASAP
      THANKS please feel free to contact me for anything

I felt like moving from physical media to streaming was going to be a step forward, but it seems now like a step back. Hopefully all of these titles are fixed soon.
        I agree that a move forward is necessary in regards to OAR ... I have seen this battle in every way films are show over countless decades and voice of purists IS heard and responded to
        money talks I spend hundred in a few weeks and stopped when I saw too many wrong aspects ...

            Checked List to Mine - Some Corrections -

            First thanks for the Thread. I wish I found this thread before spending 100's on VUDU adding my Discs via D to D. I just added "The Devil's Advocate" and started to watch it on VUDU and noticed intermediately it was cropped! I went back to my DVD version of the film which looked so much better than the supposed VUDU HDX cropped version. When I found this I started to look for information on AR and VUDU. I found this thread and now see many of the movies I have added to VUDU are not in the proper AR! This is unacceptable. I will NEVER watch a movie if it is cropped and not the OAR. This means I will continue to only watch my Discs. I have over 500 movies on VUDU now and was continuing to add more when I found this. Now I will have to check all my movies!

            So far I have confirmed the following VUDU HDX movies are the wrong aspect ratio.

            Demolition Man
            Ben-Hur - Correct for beginning then goes Pan and Scan - Really
            The Devil's Advocate
            Soldier
            The Last Boy Scott
            300
            Absolute Power
            Drive
            Die Hard 2
            Green Lantern (Theatrical Cut) Also noticed my Extended Version Did Not Get Uploaded as Such
            Resident Evil: Retribution - Correct AR through Credits
            Unknown

            A date of the last check added to the list might be useful so we know how long movies have been on this list.

            Movies checked which seem to be corrected:

            The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Extended Edition) Checked due to 3D version being listed.
            Congo
            The Conspiracy Theory - HDX Correct Confirmed
            Planet of the Apes - 2001 - HDX version Correct Confirmed
            Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves 1991 - (Extended Version)- HDX Version Confirmed Correct - Guessing this matches to the Robin Hood (1991) on the list.
            Lethal Weapon 3 - HDX Confirmed correct
            Last Action Hero - HDX Confirmed correct
            The Fifth Element - HDX Confirmed correct

            Hope this helps.

              It's about time they corrected Planet of the Apes!
              It was wrong for a very long time.
              I wish they would fix Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom & mad max movies..... There is no excuse for this mess...

                  Re: The "Incorrect Aspect Ratio" Thread

                  Just to let everyone know, I just updated the list with your contributions. I apologize that it takes forever for me to get around to getting the list up-to-date, I'm afraid I'm just really busy nowadays. Hard to believe this list was first made almost exactly 4 years ago. You guys have been super helpful over this period of time, thank you so much.

                  Alas, it is also unfortunate that only a handful of the titles have actually been fixed over these 4 years. This aspect ratio problem is really one of the few big flaws to using Vudu over a Blu-ray or DVD.

                              My question is why are they doing this? The aspect ratios are just as important as the picture quality. What are they trying to do cropping the prints,trying to satisfy some 20 year old nit-wit with an xbox?

                                Fatal Attraction (HDX) still is 1.33:1 and the image is horizontally squished on Vudu. IMDB specifies 1.85:1 for this movie.
