    I was perusing the dvd section at walmart & came across one of my "guilty pleasures" dvds- Judge Dredd. 1st thing I always do is check the back to make sure the movie is anamorphic. In the specifications box it says this:

    Widescreen (2.35:1)-Enhanced for 16X9 Televisions

    When I get home & pop it in the image is distorted & squished-just like when you put a non-anamorphic widescreen movie on a 16X9 TV. Anbody know what gives?

    Many titles from Buena Vista Home Entertainment were "re-released" with "revised" artwork that was incorrectly "revised."

    In other words...

    Its a misprint.
