GULLIVER'S TRAVELS has been butchered by a combination of cropping and geometric distortion to fill (or almost fill) a wide screen TV. The fact is that Hollywood movies made prior to 1953 were virtually all shot and framed for a 1.37x1 aspect ratio (all but identical to standard def TVs). For years movie fans have been hounding television stations and video distributors to show films made after 1953 in their proper wide screen ratios. Now that we have wide screen TVs the opposite situation exists, and it's the films made before 1953 that will suffer. I urge people not to support this practice. This is not a product that anyone who has an interest in movies should purchase.
The film has been butchered for all the reasons stated.
Stay far away from this. The 5 star reviews are very suspect, as it is night and day,not just a small difference of opinion.
It's very disappointing considering this is a classic that could really stand a decent transfer. Unfortunately, this is not it.
I don't often write reviews, but I felt the need to serve as a warning to others on this one.
Don't buy this edition or you'll be disappointed.
If all you want is a cartoon to babysit your toddler and couldn't careless if parts of the image are missing, then this BD might do it for you, but if you care about the integrity of the original art, then this BD is a travesty, there's no kinder word for such action.

Find a Bluray restoration of it. The DvD I found was one of those public domain VHS transfers that is intolerably grainy. Read morePublished 20 days ago by ML
This book was written in the 1700's. The language is thick and uncommon to today's times. The story is wonderful, but exhausting to read. Read morePublished 20 days ago by joeconsumer
