Shudder the thought...but, I veiwed T3 in Full Frame! I noticed a notable difference in the opening scene. Full Frontal Nudity! I'm wondering if the Actress is told that her Breasts will be in full veiw ONLY in the Full Frame DVD? The Widescreen only shows much less nudity from behind and at far distance(while walking towards the car). In the Full Frame her breasts are fully exposed in this scene also. What are your thoughts on this.

[conspiracy mode on] perhaps this is an attempt by the Blockbuster/Wal-mart underground to convince buyers that mar discs are a better buy. [conspiracy mode off]

Well you can't argue with some people's complaints about Super35 in this case

I'm not sure I'd call that "full frontal nudity" (you can't see anything, really), but it is strange they would frame it that way!

That shot with her breasts partially covered by her hair was even shown in some movie trailers.

So fullscreen mongers get everything we do PLUS more? That's BS. It's not this way in every case is it?

Is this really real? I've never seen a shot where the widescreen is so radically different from the full frame, with it being cropped radically at the sides as well as top and bottom (just realised I used Radically twice in one sentance, 3 times Damn). Does anybody have any other examples of when this has been done? This certainly makes it harder to suggest widescreen to friends as it's impossible to argue against THAT shot. I have seen it for censorship issues in the UK when Realm of the Senses was zoomed in to remove an offending moment, but I can't see that being the case with T3.

Certainly no full frontal nudity (not wanting to reduce the tone too much, but will), as it's no worse than something in FHM or Maxim.Posted Image
Knowing my luck, if there is such a thing as re-incarnation, I'd come back as me!

Is that screencap legit though? I want to see real screencaps taken from both the fullscreen DVD and widescreen DVD to compare. Not a VCD or any other media, as the screencap above implies.

Just for the record, it doesn't matter that you can see more in the full screen transfer. The widescreen is what the director intended.

After viewing these very 'revealing' screenshots, all I can say is... FULLFRAME rules dude!

Thank you, that is what I was thinking while scanning through this thread.
Besides, those pictures don't really entice me to get the MAR release, it really doesn't show that much.
