Does anyone know why Criterion were reluctant to use anamorphic encoding? MGM/UA were also culprits of this.When I see Criterion releasing 4k remasters only on BD, I can't help but think back to the early days of DVD, when they refused to use anamorphic encoding. What a waste. . .
1.66 non-anamorphic looks weird on a 16:9 TV whereas a good quality 4:3 fullframe can look fine.
Of course, Criterion could be waiting to re-release all these titles in UHD for everyone to buy yet one more time!
