oops yep it totally forgot about those
I was actually surprised to see Amazon list this as Widescreen. I would assume they will all be Full Screen, but decently crisper than the VHS's.
more websites say widescreen but since it is lionsgate i am leaning toward the fullscreen is more accurate cause barnes and noble even has the runtimes for all the chapter stops on all 3 dvds
Lionsgate originally announced these as widescreen but I just checked their retailer/distributor website and now it's showing fullframe ...
No. of Discs: 3
Screen Format: Full Screen
Audio: 2.0 DOLBY DIGITAL
Run Time: 270
Bad news but I'll still pick them up at this price.
Widescreen seemed a bit odd to me anyways. 4x3 is probably the correct OAR for the films, since they were basically produced for video/cable.
IMDB lists them as 1.85:1. Either IMDB made a mistake, or they're the aspect ratios the producer or director intended. I also guess that Lionsgate made an error to the video specs. We'll find out when the product is released or reviewed.
Fullscreen I'm afraid
I have this set and can report that all three films are presented in 4:3 fullscreen, as it states on the back cover.
Once again Lionsgate announced widescreen editions but failed to deliver - what the original aspect ratios were is still open for debate of course.
oh well i was gonna get this regardless how is the 3 dvds packaged inside the case?
The13thman, are the transfers good and do they at least have a trailer for each film?
In regards to the ratios I know pt. 3 was screened theatrically at the Alamo Drafthouse a while back (with the director in attendance).I suspect it was run at 1:85 but I wasn't there so I couldn't say for sure.Some of the director's Q& A segment was posted on Youtube a while back,if it's still up perhaps he mentions the ratio (if anyone cares to look).
Thanks for sharing. Awesome to see Hellman supporting (and proud) of his work here. Here's the link:
No mention of the aspect ratio, but I'd imagine it would be 1.85.
Too bad about this set being all fullscreen, but it will be nice to have Hellman's film, and the fifth, in some form of completion, anyway. The fourth would be better with a ratio of 0:0.
I just went to amazon to pre-order the set, but it is written that "This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer"
Damn!!! I was so waiting to watch those on DVD! My week is ruin!
How is that even possible, when The13thman already got his copy?
I don't know how it's possible, but Amazon does indeed indicate it's "been discontinued by the manufacturer". How's that for a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking? Bah, Humbug!
that has to be an error or mistake on amazon anyway if u have a bestbuy store near u i'd call and ask them if they are getting my local bestbuy is a small store they ain't getting this but the one 60 minutes away is i am going x-mas shopping up there anyway tuesday so i'll get it there
Silent Night, Deadly Night 3 is a Monte Hellman movie. I seriously doubt it wasn't shot widescreen.
You will burn at the stake for that!
That was a mistake or the item will be discontinued...
Mine was shipped from Axel Music yesterday.
Why? It went direct to video. So the "original" aspect ratio was 1.33:1. Burden of proof of an "intended" aspect ratio would fall on anyone trying to claim otherwise. And saying IMDb says so isn't proof.
I figured most Direct to video flicks from the 80's and 90's were shot full frame. I highly doubt any of these got the widescreen treatment.
But discontinued? I hope not. I was hoping to (maybe) getting this for the holidays and giving it a whirl.
Definitely. IMDB are often incorrect about a great many things, aspect ratios sometimes being one of them.
Even if a film was screened in a theater at some later point doesn't mean that the intended OAR was widescreen to begin with.
It must be a mistake. Amazon just shipped mine out yesterday, to arrive on Tuesday from UPS.
