Ok something has been bothering me for quite some time now. When a DVD is released with a pan & scan aspect ratio and it's labeled 1.33:1, isn't it really 1.5:1? The resolution of the digital picture stored on the DVD is 720 x 480 which = 1.5:1. And another weird resolution quirk I've found is that when a film is released in 1.85:1 it's actually only 1.78:1. For instance, both Blade 2 and The Princess Bride are technically considered 1.85:1, but a couple of screen grabs shows that they each have a resolution of 852 x 480 which = 1.78:1. Check for yourself. Blade 2 http://userpages.umbc.edu/~bdobbs1/blade2.jpg The Princess Bride http://userpages.umbc.edu/~bdobbs1/princessbride.jpg Is there something I'm missing?
