In another thread someone posted a screen cap off the new "Collector's Edition" of "Star Trek VI: The Undicovered Country", and a review of the DVD was also posted on The Digital Bits website. Previous specs promised a remastered anamorphic widescreen transfer at the proper 2.35 to 1 ratio, correcting the original transfer of 2:1 done for LaserDisc in 1992 (and subsequently reused for the original DVD). Yes, this film was shot Super35. Yes, the theatrical ratio was 2.35 to 1. Yes, again they have opened up the mattes to reveal additional picture information...from the screenshot compared directly to the original DVD the top mattes have been opened up and it is matted more on the bottom (exactly opposite on the original LaserDisc/DVD transfer). They have cropped the left side again, EVEN MORE THIS TIME! The same thing happened on the original widescreen transfer of "The Abyss". The telecine operator didn't take into account that the Super35 process uses the soundtrack area normally cropped off in normal (flat) photography. This results in a LOSS of at least 10% of the image. Note all the "viewscreen" shots during the movie. They are all off-centered, whereas theatrically they were symmetrical. During the bridge interrigation of Valeris, McCoy is nearly cropped off the shot where he exclaims "and what do you think you've been doing?" (in slightly overscanned televisons he is indeed completely cut off.) When "The Abyss" was reissued for the Special Edition, Van Ling even made it a point to mention the previous faux-pas of the original transfer. Lest I be accused of faulty memories or seeing something I didn't see, let me assure everyone that this isn't a case of Laura Dern plucking a leaf in a trailer. I saw this film a few times during its original run, and recently again when a local theater ran all the films in a marathon session (VERY battered prints by the way). "Trek VI" has been improperly transferred again. We need to petition Paramount the same way we did for "Back to the Future II" and get this retransferred PROPERLY!
