    Well on the UK version but I wondered if this was true on their R1 counterpart.
    There are a tonne of Warner titles in an HMV sale at the mo. Normally the back of their boxes just say 'Regular' or 'Widescreen' with the ratio underneath. Then it'll say 'enhanced for widescreen TVs or something'.
    Dangerous Liaisons says something like 'widescreen - suitable for all TVs'. I dunno it's subtle but it just seemed like it was saying 1.33:1 would be unsuitable for all TVs...if you see what I mean! [​IMG]
    Hmm. Any thoughts?

    Theo,

    I have the R1 DVD, and it's a dual side disc with P&S on one side, and 1:1.85 WS anamorphic on the other side. Both are stated accurately on the box cover of the R1 version. I don't know exactly how to interpret what you're seeing on the R2 package.

    I think you are interpreting too much into it.

    IMHO it's just Warners way to say "You don't need a WS TV for it"...

    This along with the Director's Cut of Blade Runner are actually "pan-and-scan exclusives" on DVD (meaning the only way to get a pan and scan version is on DVD), since these were both released on laserdisc and even VHS ONLY in widescreen, but the DVDs include both versions.
