3.0 out of 5 stars needs to be 16:9 aspect ratio, March 23, 2012
This review is from: Dragon Ball Z: Level 2.1 [Blu-Ray] (Blu-ray)
All the new remastered levels of DBZ are great but why even make it in blu ray if the ratio is not 16:9. Hardly anyone has tube televisions anymore so thats almost in a way what you are watching. Even the remastered dvd versions are in 16:9. It just doesnt make any sense. Its like an oxymoron. You get it in bluray but you also are looking a picture that should be on a tube television.

Thanks,

Big DBZ Fan

The original aspect ratio of DBZ is 4:3, NOT 16:9. And they CROPPED the orange bricks to 16:9. They cut off so much of the screen.

Shows/movies/etc. always need to be IN THE ORIGINAL RATIO. End of discussion. Susan hit the nail on the head.

I like the 16:9..it's blu-ray.... but for some reason people want the original 4:3 which is cool... I just say the should have an option to choose either or... thus more money for Funimation... End of discussion. By the way most movies and shows aren't original or else we would have panorama.... man whoever future proofed it was smart...

i don't care about the original 4:3. obviously i was talking about the remastered versions on dvd that has the 16:9 ratio. why not just turn that into bluray quality and keep eveything else the same.

Because by cropping it to 16:9 like the DVDs you're losing footage? You realize that in order to turn 4:3 into 16:9 you must cut off the tops and bottoms of the clip. That or stretch it and that looks awful. Use the options on your Blu-ray player to crop it to 16:9, or just buy the DVDs. Blu-ray players upscale the DVDs anyway.

Crono Mk I says:
Everything SHOULD be in the original format. Most things are shot in widescreen, but most old cartoons were drawn in full-frame. In order to make them widescreen, you'd have to chop off the top and bottom of each frame. I can't believe you're not understanding this simple concept. Picture is LOST when full-frame is converted to widescreen.
