Kubrick composed his films for both theatrical and fullscreen presentation.

So, for most of his films, either ratio could be considered the correct ratio.

Conan, the new 2011 version. Great first twenty mins then falls completely flat like a dull episode of the old Hercules tv show. A big let-down with a bland Conan who is so lacking in charisma. Very disappointing. Lots of cheap looking digital matte work didn't help either. Yuck. Awful rubbish and an insult to Howard and his writing. Wish I had just rented instead of bought!

That is if you overlook the truly horrible fullscreen versions of Spartacus and 2001. You are right of course but what you're saying is really only applicable to A Clockwork Orange and the subsequent films thereafter ;)

Good purchase my friend, a superb film indeed. In fact you've reminded me to pick this one up myself

Picked up the bluray brand new from a PlayTrade seller for just over 4. Worth seeing if they have anymore or someone else selling it at a similar price.

2 arrivals - Day of the Dead US Blu (sorry Arrow but the Romero commentery was a deal breaker for me) and the J-Horror Confessions which I can't wait to see - on a big Asian kick at the moment.

4.99 on Playtrade or same price at choicesuk.com. Problem with this release is that I know it comes with a slipcover and I'm a bit OCD when it comes to slips and am determined to always get a slip release if it was originally released with one. I may to have to grab this only in a shop or on eBay just to make sure.
I'm so sad :loco:

EDIT: This reminds me, does anyone own Man On Fire on Blu-ray with a slipcover? If so would you be willing to part with your slip??

Exp I getting the UK steely so it will have triple play banner at the top sadly, hopefully the banner is just a paper sheet instead of on the actual steely.
