The Amazon description indicates that the Aspect Ratio is only 1:33. Other web sites show it as 1:78. Portions of this concert are part of the Last Night at Shea Stadium DVD, which has an Aspect Ration of 1:78. Is the Amazon description inaccurate or was SONY stupid enough to issue the concert DVD in 1:33?

If its in 1:33 I WILL NOT buy it. That's the first thing i noticed. 1:78 or 1:85 is fantastic though.

Never go by Amazon's specs page for movies, especially when it hasn't even been released yet. They're always unreliable.

I'm still curious why only the Blu-Ray version is delayed until April 5th...

And not only is it early at Best Buy it's also $1 cheaper than Amazon.

However, if you live in a state in which Amazon.com does not charge state income tax on purchases (e.g. California), there is no price advantage buying it at Best Buy. Moreover, if your total order is more than $25, then shipping is free. Unless one is near a Best Buy, getting there & back will cost a customer time and more money on transportation. Ergo, best Buy is NOT the "best buy" for everyone.

The price advantage is not just the only point moron. The point is BB has it a month earlier than Amazon. If you're willing to wait a month just to save $1 ($2 at most) by all means wait a month a save that precious dollar.

And most people are smart enough to only visit B&M stores on their way home from work or while out doing other things. I guess if you never leave your house you would have to calculate money for gas with every purchase.

You're the one who first mentioned price & brought up the subject! And, by the way, the DVD costs $17.99 at both Best Buy & Amazon. Add on sales tax at Best Buy (9.75% in California).

Also, the subject of this forum concerned the aspect ratio of the Blu-Ray DVD. Your personal inability/impatience to wait a few weeks for the DVD of a 3 year old concert is irrelevant & ridiculous.

So before you call a person a moron you should look in your mirror & you'll see a real jerk. Your nasty, uncalled for namecalling clearly indicates that you are an ignorant bastard whose comments are worthless. You're obviously not aware that there are a lot of elderly and/or disabled people in this country/world living on fixed incomes where every dollar counts. They are involuntarily homebound and do not have the benefit as you have of being able to go out and shop for a bargain. You are truly a dumb, insensitive fool with no sense of decency.
