I only looked at it for a few minutes (yuck!), but I believe you are right. Can’t people who are that misguided do this themselves at home?Terry, I remember in 2006, at the time The Original Series film elements was remastered and new CGI effects were created, Trekmovie reported that in Japan, they were airing it in widescreen. From the screen caps, it looked like the image was zoomed in. I’d imagine that might be what you saw?
In my neck of the woods the "average" TV viewer complains about 4:3 product on their fancy WS sets - just like they complained about WS product on their 4:3 sets. They "don't like them black bars" with most sets I've seen set up so 4:3 is stretched to fill the screen. And they claim to not "see" the difference! My brother-in-law, a sign maker/artist, is one of those people. I even found a circle in a scene, showed it to him on his mis-adjusted set, fixed it to make the circle round instead of an oval, and he *still* said he didn't see the difference! Yeah... he's not designing anything for me...I only looked at it for a few minutes (yuck!), but I believe you are right. Can’t people who are that misguided do this themselves at home?
That is why I never watch meTV anymore; they are lopping off the top and bottom to zoom to about 1.75. I just can't stand seeing that done to shows like Bewitched and Carol Burnett et al.I own all the “Star Treks” on disc, so I never watch it when broadcast. The other day I was channel surfing and came across the original series on Canadian Sci/Fi. They have “wide screened” it!
just great stuff and facts all through the film before and after. It was such a cool live event. I even submitted a few questions at the end of the film that they answered. It was so well done and just fun to watch with people who love Star Trek as much as we do.Hey Osato, sounds great you caugth the CYA showing of Star Trek 2, sorry I missed the show. was there a lot of new information or things you learned about the movie, or was it just a fun experience to be with a lot of fans watching the film?
