Blu-Ray version of this is 1.77, not 2.35 to 1 aspect ratio
20 July 2012
A number of new movies out recently in Blu Ray, this one, and many others, are in much smaller aspect ratio than original theatrical release! Next of Kin is another example. This should be protested and not allowed to continue. Normally I expect a Blu-Ray to be a duplicate of the original release. HOWEVER, I BELIEVE THIS IS SIMPLY AN ERROR IN AMAZON'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION. I CHECKED "OUTLAND" AND THOUGH LISTED AS 1.77 TO 1, IT WAS THE CORRECT 2.3 OR SO TO 1 THAT IT SHOULD BE. This is a rip off of the customer. I bought a very good Blu-Ray of "Cellular" a few weeks ago, but it's in 16 X 9 aspect ratio. Now the new version of "Cellular" in Blu-Ray is the correct 2.35 to 1 aspect ratio.

The Cellular BluRay at 16 X 9 was excellent but for the aspect ratio.

I don't know if this is a ruse to force cinephiles to pony up for another Blu Ray later or not. But I do hate it.
