I'd love to have a special high res 4:3 TV with a disc that was encoded that way to recreate the IMAX experience.

I was watching Interstellar with my folks and had to point out to them the shifts in aspect ratio. I guess to some it's just not that obvious. 2.40:1 on a 16:9 TV to full 16:9 isn't that jarring of a shift I suppose. But when I saw the film in IMAX the shifts were amazing.

Snyders version of Robin is the best.
Escape From New York Scream Factory
It improves upon the A/V quality of the previous MGM Blu-ray, preserves the best of the 2003 DVD extras, and adds great new material too. Donít miss it!

Not least when a lot of the embiggened shots are against the black background of space anyway...

Many times. It was extremely impressive, so was DK and DKR

I had a 1080i CRT that was 4:3. That would have worked well for the IMAX spliced in 4:3 scene changes

I'm kind of curious to watch it now, years removed from all of the hype. I'll have to revisit it one of these days.

Wish this would happen in the U.S. This cropping nonsense shouldn't have happened in the first place, but if it had to, it should've stopped once widescreen TVs came into vogue. The blasted Vudu version of Batman Begins is also cropped .

It was truly breathtaking. Shame that my IMAX tossed out its 70mm projectors this week, so we're never going to get to see anything in that format again .

I never saw DKR in 15/70. One of my great regrets.

I didn't know any CRT sets could handle resolution that high. Odd that it'd be a 4:3 set but be able to handle that resolution. What'd it use, component video?

It was component. It would do a squished 16:9 picture or add black bars. It was a an early HD sony Trinitron I think but I had gotten it from craigslist cheap. Sucker weighed 250lbs.

Later models and rear projection used DVI.

I had a computer monitor that was used 21 or 22" CRT that could do 1600x1200 or something through BNC connection.

Oddly, I also had a BEAST of a CRT Panasonic TV (32") that was 4:3 and did 1080i. SO HEAVY (just like yours). Bought it in 2003 right when I left Circuit City to go to work in the real world.

I think Warner would be very wise to include TDK trilogy amongst the 35+ UHD Blu-rays they're releasing this year. It could be very popular amongst casual audiences (potentially boosting UHD as a whole), it will give them a chance to rectify the poor transfers of BB and TDK, and I need those IMAX scenes in UHD!

Along with Mad Max: Fury Road, this would be another absolute must-buy for me. Hopefully Warner learns from the mistakes it made 10 years ago with the launch of Blu-ray.

Fury Road was shot and rezzed at 2K.

I know - but it will still benefit from HDR, increased bit depth, bitrate and colour gamut, and all the other associated improvements with UHD. It's one of the most visually striking films I've ever seen, and one of the best, so anything that improves the experience will be more than welcome.

Default The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition - 2013

I wish they'd released a boxed set version that was a regular plastic case instead of that unwieldy big boxed set.

You mean the 'book' one with the added tat? I had that and sold it after watching the documentary, then bought the regular trilogy in a slipbox for cheap.

If anyone knows where I can watch IMAX sequences in 4:3 aspect ratio for The Dark Knight Rises, p l e a s e PM me. I'd already bought all three on blu-ray before UCE was released and I don't want to pay so much and buy UCE just for one bonus disc... (I was looking for the bonus disc itself on ebay but results are 0).
