The original 4:3 version of BTTF

Recommended Posts

Found this on reddit, but thought it could be good for additional pics/continuity/etc.

The films were shot in the typical 80's 4:3, and cropped to widescreen (which is how we view them today, unless you still have the fullscreen DVD.)

I think he's not exactly referring to HD as resolution, rather he wants to see it in better quality than in that clip :P.

The full screen version is really not what you're suppose to see. That was just to accommodate TV screens of the era. It was either this, or they pan and scan. The widescreen version is how it's suppose to be. No one is going to do a transfer of the unmatted frame, in HD. The only film ever gave you both options is the animated Transformers movie.

It's a bit OT but my biggest disappointment is still about the cropped IMAX screen on dvd for The Ride.

Most of the video footage is from the waiting line monitors, which is only in SD. I guess they just didn't bother getting the film master for the Ride screen portions. And said screw it.

i dont think an hd square exists

Yes it does. HD is just a certain amount of pixels. The aspect ratio doesn't determine something is HD or not. 4:3 HD is just 1440X1080 resolution.
