    Flat possibly refers to the 1.37:1 aspect ratio (4:3) which is the OAR of Dial M. Nothing to worry here.

    Sadly 'flat' IS the industry term for '2-D'.

    Isn't there some kind of issue with the 3D process not transferring well to DVD? I thought New Line said something along those lines when the Elm Street box came out and which ever of those was supposed to be in 3D (5?) wasn't.

    I think it has something to do with the interlacing of the TV....though if they made a special 3D version for progressive players, I would think that would work fine (and it might get me off my ass and buying a progressive player that I've been stalling on...at least they've gotten cheaper).

    well I guess it would be safe to say at this point it is no longer considered for 2002 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    WB's restoration work likely is taking longer...the print I saw on TV looks like junk.

    I saw a 3-D print (dual projection) at the Film Forum in NY last year. The print was excellent and so was the 3-D. I have a 3-D VHS tape, done in the field sequential 3-D format, copied from a Japanese VHD and the 3-D is very good.
