    Saw this at Walmart for $9.44 is it anamorphic?
    Also saw Point Break with DTS for $9.44, has this always been a DTS title or is it new?

    Thanks

    The Doors isn't amamorphic.
    The Point Break DTS release has been out for a while.
    Have both and enjoy them.

    I believe the newer two disc SE set of The Doors is anamorphic.

    I am pretty sure the disc I saw was a two disc version the case was double thick but it said nothing about anamorphic. Did not know there was two versions released.

    It's not anamorphic. I've got it sitting on the shelf right next to me, and no 16:9 enhancement. DVDEmpire is incorrect. [​IMG]

    i own it, and it is NOT anamorphic.

    the rather confusing graphic in the bottom left corner of the back cover shows the 2.35:1 image with dark black bars on top and bottom, and lighter gray bars on left and rifht of a 16:9 screen.

    a great set otherwise...

    Yes, according to DVD Review it is not.
    Another cock-up from Artisan...I thought WB had this title at one time?

    As another owner of this DVD, I can also confirm that it is NOT anamorphic.

    I thought it was before I bought it, partly due to the odd graphic that Steven describes and partly due to incorrect info about it from several online resources.

    The region 2 edition from Momentum is anamorphic, although the extras are not identical to the region 1 edition.

    Click here for the region 2 specs.
