    Re: The "Incorrect Aspect Ratio" Thread

    Driven is in the incorrect ratio. It is zoomed in quite a bit and cuts a lot of all four sides off.

      Dial M for Murder (HDX version) is in 4:3. The original aspect ratio was 1.85:1. The Blu-ray version comes with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, which would be preferable to 4:3.

          1408 is 1.85:1 (SD, HD & HDX). It should be 2.35:1.

              Re: The "Incorrect Aspect Ratio" Thread

              I hate my first post to be a negative one, but I've actually had a LOT of bad experiences so far with Vudu and I just bit my tongue because I also am enjoying a lot of HDX movies that don't even have a BD release to choose from.

              But does any REALLY do anything to fix problems? From the D2D read errors where it tells me they are manually verifying the disc and will get back to me (they never do, nor has any disc that didn't read properly EVER get corrected) to now the even worse finding that Deep Impact is in full frame. And looking at this thread it was in January that someone said they'd work on correcting it. The blu-ray has a proper endcode...why would anyone suspect to get a 4:3 presentation of a movie in HDX of a film that wasn't actually shot in full frame to begin with?

              I see people complaining about sound and other issues and I don't want to minimize their problems, but 4:3 is beyond unacceptable. And to know about it for so long, have not put some kind of warning to consumers is just mystifying to me and it actually makes me angry. I kind of sort of understand why some titles are in 1.78:1 when it's not their OAR because studios are probably making a lot of encodes for tv users who want their tv screen filled, but why would there even be an HD encode of Deep Impact in 4:3? The DVD is better than the HDX encode that is being sold here? What a total rip-off that is. And the movie shouldn't have to be as huge as Forrest Gump to get corrected. If the studios are really to blame for everything, then have them pay me back or pull this title from the site until they actually give an encode that isn't full frame...you know like the one they used for the blu-ray.

              It's already head-scratching that we are paying for catalog titles as much or more than the blu-rays cost or would cost in almost every case, without the cost of producing a disc, giving us packaging, extras and lossless sound, but this really takes the cake. Money spent on a full frame HDX movie that wasn't even 1.33:1 and it's not listed anywhere (nor is it listed that any movies are not in their OAR) and 6 months after the tech people claim they're working on it, we still have the same version, more than the blu-ray costs and basically worthless in this aspect ratio.

              Sorry, but that's just terrible. There are definitely good things about UV and Vudu and definitely things that need improvement and I'm all for being patient about that. But this just doesn't seem like something a customer should tolerate and to know find this thread with so many other titles not in OAR (thankfully, no others butcher to 4:3) really sours me on the site and the service. These movies should have notations about altered aspect ratios, especially when you're selling HDX full frame movie of widescreen movies.

              Wow.

                  Marnie is presented in 1.78:1 (HDX, HD, and SD) on Vudu. The original aspect ratio is 1.85:1. The Marnie Blu-ray has the correct aspect ratio.

                  The Birds is presented in 1.78:1 (HDX and HD) and 1.33:1 (SD). The original aspect ratio is 1.85:1. The Birds Blu-ray has the correct aspect ratio.

                    It's already on the list.

                      I'm afraid I won't be listing 1.85 to 1.78 changes. There is simply too little of a difference.

                      I'll add The Birds to the list.

                        FYI.... Hangover 2 and Deep Impact are both in their correct aspect ratio on CinemaNow, which makes me wonder why they have not been corrected on Vudu.

                          There are a lot of titles that are in the correct AR on Cinemanow but not on VUDU. Off the top of my head I remember The Road Warrior, The Devil's Advocate, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Speed 2, and The Hard Way being among those.

                            Flixster also has Deep Impact in the correct aspect ratio, although only viewable in SD on the net or portable devices. So far only VUDU is getting titles in the wrong aspect ratio.

                              I tried to convert Stay Tuned via the disc-to-digital program. The OAR is 2.40:1, but on Vudu is in pan-and-scan 1.33:1. There's no HD or HDX version of the film available, only SD.

                                Resident Evil: Retribution (OAR: 2.40:1, Vudu: 1.78:1)
                                Just checked out the 3D version, and that one's the correct OAR. The regular version is still cropped.
