Restored version is a knockout

By BMJ

About Me Movie Buff

Comments about Wizard of Oz: 75th Anniversary (BD):

Even if you've watched this dozens of times, get this restored verson. The sharpness is
improved, of course, but so are the tonal values. The result is a knockout rendition of what
I think is the greatest achievement of sheer movie making.
As to someone's complaints that the "black bars" should be removed: They simply haven't
thought it out:
The original movie is 1.37:1 aspect ration (width:height). A wide home screen is probably
16:9 (1.77:1). So there are three ways to show a 1.37:1 movie on a wide home screen:
1. Expand it horizontally only to fit the width. But of course, then it's distorted.
2. Expand it equally both ways until it fits the width. Not distorted, but the top and bottom
won't show.
3. Fit it vertically. Then there's left over space on the wide home screen -- hence the black
bars.
Assuming #1 is a non-starter, would you rather have black bars or not see the top and bottom?

Comments about Wizard of Oz: 75th Anniversary (BD):

Hi WB! I grew up watching Wizard of Oz... use to own it on VHS, never on DVD and now on Blu-Ray! Proud to say I loved the movie as part of my childhood. However, I wish you guys could update the next anniversary one; by removing those black bars in the film? IT does not show 1080p and I hate to use the WIDE button format on my HD 32" Vizio TV! Otherwise it is a classic... Next time, can you please block those black bars off! We do not live in a Standard Def world no more! Thanks guys!
