Have watched many WWII documentaries including Ken
Burns THE WAR and WWII in COLOR.
This is supposed to be the grandaddy of all WWII documentaries
and I have always wanted to see it.
However, looking over at Amazon (see link) there seems
to be an uproar about the aspect ratio that I am guessing
is being proposed for this release.
The Horrors, The Horrors!
Wow! Officially the most scattered, desperate, incoherent explanation I've ever seen for cropping.
At least it starts off honest, saying it's all about selling it for foreign distribution in HD.
But then it devolves into this gibberish, which makes Vittorio Storaro's "Univisium" nonsense seem lucid in comparison.
One of my favorite TV films ever, the Aussie miniseries BANGKOK HILTON starring Nicole Kidman, was also cropped from 4:3 to 16:9 for the most recent DVD, as was the series VIETNAM that she was in.
I have a horrible feeling that while classic films like Casablanca and Citizen Kane will be safe, old television shows will all soon be cropped.
