Air Force One uses odd 2-sided labeling?

    Just curious, but does anyone else have a copy of Air Force One (one side is P&S, the other Widescreen) that can check something?

    Usually on these two sided disks, the label around the ring describes what is on the opposite side of the disk, just as if the disk were one sided with a decorative label. Thus if you see Widescreen on the ring, the data on the opposite side will be the widescreen movie.

    With my Air Force One disk however, this doesn't seem to be the case. Just wondering if its an oddity, or if all of them are like this.

    I've got the version you have...in the player right now actually. The widescreen label is up and the player is playing widescreen.

    As long as you know which side is which, I don't see how this is an issue for you if you got a mislabeled copy.

    I know there is more than one movie with this oddity besides Air Force One. I also have a movie like this and I have to look on the numering on the disc, side A ends with A and side B with B. I forget the name of the movie though.

    Hmm. It's probably an oddity. I bet that the labels got pressed on the wrong side.

    Not a real issue... just a small irritation to have the movie start with the rant about being resized for my television when I was expecting widescreen. :/

    My copy of As Good as it Gets is also like this. The Full Frame label facing up and still I get anamorphic video. Interesting note though that the full frame version isn't full frame at all, but a 1.66:1 widescreen transfer (non anamorphic).

    My copy of the OOP Dawn of The Dead Director's Cut is like this. When I first bought the disc several years ago I popped in the disc on side 1, and I see a scene half way through the movie playing. It's a flipper with the sides labeled wrong.
