    What is a good web site to retrieve dvd aspect ratios? I have created a listing of all my dvds and some do not have rations listed on the back. I need to find these to finalize the listing. Thanks.

    IMDB is wrong about aspect ratios on a lot of DVD, so it's a lousy resource. I'd use amazon.com or other DVD sellers.

    I agree that this is one of the weakest parts of IMDB.

    The best resource I know of is http://db2.widescreenreview.com/dvdreview/ They only list aspect ratios for widescreen movies, but those they don't list you can pretty much assume are 1.33:1. [​IMG] They actually measure the image, so you get exact values, and I have yet to see an error in aspect ratio.

    I'm with George. Widescreen Review all the way. All the other sites seem to read what is printed on the packaging (which is usually rounded off) but WSR is always accurate.

    Thanks, Widescreen had all the titles I was searching ratios for.
