    I read at DVD file ( http://www.dvdfile.com/software/revi...o_2/baraka.htm )
    That this DVD was 5.1 but only 4x3 lbxed. Someone just bought me the DVD and on the computer at work it appears to have a pristine transfer...and there's "16x9 anamorphic" written all over the box, insert, and even on the DVD itself.
    I can't verify for certain that it's 16x9 until I get home (don't know how to tell on the work PC) but doesn anyone know what I'm talking about?
    did the studio remaster it in 16x9 after all the criticsm it received for the first release?
    The image is so clear, detailed, and HD-like 3-D on the PC that I can't imagine it's not remastered and indeed 16x9.

    Why, yes it was remastered and it is anamorphic - you didn't know? [​IMG] And it's cheap, too - under $10 (or was) at Deep Discount DVD.

    Awsome.

    DVD file owes it to the DVD community to update their review...I would never have purchased it on "moral" grounds thinking that it was a bastardized non-16x9 transfer. I'm so glad that someone bought it for me so I could herald (and be made aware of) the new transfer!
