this pisses me off....but i really want the features....fuck. i hope paramount fixes this.
i dont mean to sound pessimistic here but, i have a feeling that it wont happen...b/c Paramount is evil
Unacceptable - I was going to buy this but Ill wait now until they correct it - whether that be in a few weeks or a few years - unless they release 2 and 3 on blu-ray correctly and I find the first one really cheap- then I might give in later so have the set on blu
What the hell!!?? Is there a logical reason to do something like this?? I don't want to exagerate but I think that zooming a movie is as terrible as panning & scanning. I own the uncut DVD and wasn't going to buy this new release, but it's still so disrispectful to the fans that is not even funny.
Well if enough people complain about it - we should all send them rhett's review in the email - but if enough people complain, they probably will do a recall. I'm just trying to stay positive. Paramount's not ENTIRELY evil LOL.
I'm still interested to find out why it was done. I don't think they did it just for the hell of it.
im up for it!! looks like its petition time again!
I've already sent them an email, and I'd advise everyone here to do the same. Hopefully we'll get them to at least acknowledge the problem. :nervous:
Again, here's the email: PHE_CustomerService@Paramount.com
what's their email?
Look up now.
No way I would buy it. Is the new dvd deluxe edition of part 1 also zoomed the same ? Anyone know ?
i just sent the email! Hopefully we can get this fixed!
I'm new to this site/forum and just wanted to say how glad I am I found it!
Rhett...kudos to you! I'm coming here from now on for all of my horror reviews. My order just shipped from Amazon today, but I'll be sending it back.
Yes it is, see rhett's review and screenshots.
Katatonia, thanks. I skimmed through the review but overlooked that Rhett had multiple comparison screenshots that included the new part 1 deluxe dvd.
well welcome to this awesome horror site!!
Well, the image is cut, even if the footage isn't missing.
It's unfortunate, but I had already pre-ordered the Blu-ray and I've never owned Friday the 13th on DVD (had an old uncut 4:3 VCD, but I don't count that). If Paramount does recall the disc, then I would certainly send it in for a replacement.
As many have already pointed out, the interesting thing about this whole "debacle" is the zooming itself, as it's not uniform throughout the transfer. It ALMOST seems like an artistic choice. So, the question I now pose is this: if Sean Cunningham (director) and / or Barry Abrams (director of photography) were to come out and say that the new transfer was intentional, that this was the way they wanted to shoot it but couldn't (for whatever reason), would you all stop complaining? Methinks not. I don't think it would matter. It's like when Anchor Bay released the 16x9 version of The Evil Dead and everyone complained because it was matted, even though Sam Raimi himself said this was the way it was meant to be shown. Everyone just called Raimi a sell-out hack and continued to boycott the widescreen version. So, what say you all, would you still be as angry if this were an intentional re-framing by the filmmakers?
