      We'll take a look at your list and see if any of the films can be updated.
      Daniel,
      4 months have gone by, any word on getting any of these movies corrected. I know you have to go to the studios who supply the movies, but has there been any progress made.

        Re: HDX movies having Dolby Stereo Audio ?!!?

        Not only that but I have several movies in the wrong aspect ratio.

        Rock Star
        Young Guns 2
        Just Cause

        All are 1.85 on Vudu but should be 2.35.

            Add The American President. The opening credits are in the correct 2.35:1 AR, but the rest of the movie is cropped to 1.78:1.

                Re: The "Incorrect Aspect Ratio" Thread

                I'm glad I found this thread-I recently acquired a code for Deep Impact, and was very dismayed to see it was a full screen copy. I don't understand why that is when the blu-ray is the correct AR. I refuse to buy or even watch movies that are cropped (except for 1.85-1.78): even most older DVDs are the correct AR, and I just assumed all VUDU titles were also since I hadn't encountered this problem until now. Hopefully they will redo the content in the correct format, because it's pointless otherwise. I'll have to be more careful before renting or D2Ding titles in the future, because this is completely unacceptable-we're not in the VHS era anymore.

                  As prkprkprk had mentioned, I had sent out a private message. From it:


                  We are working on multiple solutions to this problem simultaneously - some are longer term solutions targeting our procurement workflow and others are short term fixes. I am, directly, researching automated means to flag suspicious movies. In addition, I am trying to work with the team to see if some changes to the UI are possible (like sample screenshots of the encodes along with the preview; this could allow our users to quickly notice issues). Will keep posting updates to this thread.
                  Perhaps someone who's more familiar with cinematography can correct me if I'm wrong. Isn't almost everything shot with film either 2.39 or 1.85? Some newer movies shot with digital cameras like Avatar are 1.78 OAR, but if it's film then almost assuredly it's not 1.78.

                  I noticed we aren't tracking movies with OAR 1.85 that are streamed 1.78 on Vudu in this thread. I'd request all movies be presented in OAR. For instance, I noticed that Jurassic Park is presented in 1.85 on CinemaNow but 1.78 on Vudu.

                  A 1.85 to 1.78 conversion is relatively minor, but 2.39 to 1.78 is a travesty. FYI, I've noticed that many of these wrong AR movies in this thread are OAR on CinemaNow, such as The Fifth Element and The Outlaw Josey Wales. One exception was A Few Good Men, which performs the same AR switch on Vudu and CinemaNow. Perhaps that might be a clue as to what criteria (studio, encode type, etc.) trigger movies with AR switching.

                  Vudu has a better interface, disc to digital (supports blu-ray and 50% off), and more HD offerings than CinemaNow. However, I view aspect ratio switches of great films like Ben-Hur to be practically unforgivable.

                  Please improve your quality - the competition is catching-up.

                    Mostly people here are trying the HDX version. Personnaly, if I find an incorrect HDX encode I don't bother to check the HD version to see if it is wrong too. CinemaNow doesn't have HDX, so for apples to apples comparison we'd have to check HD encodes.

                    And, yes, people even post 1.85 movies shown in 1.78. I primarily blame the studios, as I doubt the content team is over-cropping films as they encode them, they just use what the studios provide.

                      There are tons of movies that are in the correct AR on Cinemanow. Off the top of my head, I know Deliverance, The Hard Way, Speed 2, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and The Road Warrior are 2.35:1 on there, but cropped on VUDU. And I'm sure there are plenty of others. It's frustrating that they can't get this fixed.

                        Can anyone confirm Last Action Hero is incorrect? The 2 minute preview is the correct ratio in HDX.

                          Looks like it has been fixed! I'll change the list.

                          Mask of Zorro appears to have been fixed as well.

                          I've added a "Recently Fixed" category on the list so people can check which ones have been updated.

                            Young Guns 2 at 1:78 instead of 2:35 is unacceptable and down right offensive.
