    I just received the new DVD of "Two For The Road" R2 UK released by "Optimum Releasing" It is a terrible disappointment. "Two For The Road" was a Panavision 2.35:1 film. The DVD is "matted" to 1.85:1 and it is an abomination!!! The print is awful and washed out and full of scratches and blemishes.
    I thought "Two for the Road" was a Fox Film but it has not been released by Fox. How could a quality film get such a poor quality release and be sanctioned by Fox?
    I truly hope that Fox will do the movie right and release it in R1 in its original aspect ratio wit a good print. Hopefully SOON!

    Just wanted to ask also whether Fox licensed this out and if so why with such a bad transfer?

    I got the widescreen version of Two For The Road on R2 dvd at cdjapan.co.jp about two months ago.

    Good Luck!

    I know there is a R2 Fox release of this title in Germany, which seems to be in the correct ratio.

    I guess I have to get one from another country. I still so shocked about the UK release!
