Thanks Dirtbiker. I usually buy the Widescreen version of movies, as I did with this, because you don't miss anything, because that's how it's filmed, but you gain the sides. This is the first time that I saw a Widescreen Version that actually cuts away some of the film. So now I own both Widescreen & Fullscreen and I'm going to buy the 2-disc set when it comes out in January also.

Where is your Avatar from? I know I've seen it before, but I can't remember where it's from.
Jack : Four Years. Damn!

Ennis: Yeah, Four Years.

As long as you have a credit card, you can always buy it online from a US retailer..  A lot of them ship internationally.

Shoot me... I just finally realized and ordered the full screen version on Amazon... Yup, another DVD on it's way, that makes how many of them, huh?  I lost the count if I include the ones I gave as gifts.  *^)

Jeez, I already got my new DVD.  I ordered it on December 26 and I got it on the 29th... I'm impressed, got it from Amazon and never clicked the fast delivery option  :s)

Thanks dirtbiker a lot for pointing out the different between Full-Scene vs. Wide-Scene. I'm going to order again for the Full-Scene DVD. I just don't see why they created 2 different size-scenes. Why don't they just started out the Full-Scene in the beginning? That goes the same for "Lord of the Rings" too. I have to order that in Full-Scene for that movie too. But it's all in the past. Anyway, thank you dirtbiker for posted the comparsions pictures between Full-Scene vs. Wide-Scene.

Thank you very much for these comparisons Mr dirtbiker!  O0

A different technical aside here, absolutely no need for a new topic. Don't fall asleep... >:D Contains some boring engineerish stuff... :m}

BBM's aspect ratio is 1.85:1 but ordinary TV sets are 1.78:1 (16:9), thus a slight difference. In theory there should be thin black bars at the top and the bottom of the TV screen while watching 1:1.85 films. In practise the black bars are usually nonexistent because TVs are adjusted to 'hide' part of the picture on all edges unless intentionally adjusted otherwise in some maintenance menu which isn't normally accessible. But by the advent of HDMI things have changed: the 'end user' can choose how the picture is shown, e.g. (just some rough snap shots of mine):
   

Horizontally notice Ennis's sleeve; vertically the difference is slighter. Ignore the right edge of the images.

The thin black bars are shown, i.e. the very full picture stored on disc, at the top and the bottom using the 'Full Pixel' setting (in Sony).


Computer screens/displays usually show the full picture (depending on your adjustments, of course).

***

Another, even slighter detail:

The situation is a bit more complicated but in a very positive way. Our dear friends Down Under have their DVDs/Blu-rays in (full) 1:1.78 (see here), i.e. some additional picture at the top and the bottom.

A frame from an Australian DVD:


The same frame from a European DVD:


The Australian releases are sort of a 'crossover' between the normal widescreen releases and the American full screen release. Technically speaking the Australian Blu-ray is the best presentation of BBM. It seems that they have a film-to-video transfer of their own.

There is some ambiguity between the terms "Full Frame" and "Full Screen".

Thanks for reading!  O0

You're wlecome DB & WcI!

Blu-ray is the first real new medium for decades; the basic technology used in DVD dates back from the 1960's.

Another great task of investigation; thanks for it,rdx ¡  :clap: :clap: :clap: Needless to say that you're the best in this sense.Ah,by the way ¡ I don't know if you should "buscar los sonidos mágicos de Ecuador",but it's sure you'd find the Ecuatorian version without any problem ¡. ;)
Ennis’s eyes gone bright with shock, mouth opening then closing again. “Love?” Ennis said finally, voice strangling in his throat.

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”
