Fans of this goofy sci-fi adventure flick from the early eighties have been waiting impatiently for Columbia to get this out on DVD, and for the first time in widescreen on video. I received a copy yesterday and there is a problem with the framing of the widescreen version (the two-sided disc offers a P&S version also). The film was shot in anamorphic Panavision (2.35:1) and the notation on the keepcase is 2.35:1, but this transfer has been cropped down to (about) 1.78:1. Basically, fullframe 16:9. Before attempting to write a review, I've emailed Columbia to try to find out if this is the framing they intended or a mistake as with their initial DVD release of Silverado. No reply as yet, but I thought some of you would want to know. As for the other aspects of the transfer, quite a mixed bag. Some very nice looking parts, some rather poor looking parts. I'll leave the details to whatever review I publish later this weekend.
