I just got the DVD. The opening titles have black bars down the sides, which is normally the sign of a film being matted down past it's intended ratio. Does anybody know anything about this film's correct ratio? Looks like it's supposed to be about the same ratio as TRON.

apparently 2-8 are all the same as the r1 versions. 1 is coming out later this year from Warner UK, and I'm planning on writing them a letter telling them to put it out uncut this time.

According to the IMDB (http://us.imdb.com/Technical?0083972), it was originally shot in ArriVision 3-D and the aspect ratio is 2:35:1. Hope that helps!

I sure hope we get a really good dvd for this movie one day. As far as horror movies go, it is kind of important, and the dvd just stinks. I still spin it mind you but I would love an uncut, good picture, extra filled copy. That would make me a happy chick.

And a 3-D copy to boot would be nice as well!

given this field-based shutter 3D system that's out there now, Paramount have no excuse for not releasing this in 3D, other than that they just don't care.

Something odd I noticed about this disk: It says on it "Friday the 13th is a trademark of New Line Productions". I thought that Paramount had kept the rights to the series title, hence no F13 in either of New Line's efforts' titles.

Did you mean "Friday the 13th is a trademark of Paramount Productions"?

Yup, I can confirm that it does indeed say 'a trademark of New Line Productions' on the packaging of the UK discs.

The prologue to the opening credits should have black bars down the sides, becase the footage from PART 2 was filmed in 1.85:1 while PART 3 was in 2.35:1. Nothing else in the film should have black bars on the sides though.

I love the fact that part 3 is in 2.35:1. Thats my favorite ration to watch movies in and part 3 is my favorite of the series. How perfect.

actually the footage from part 2 is in 2.35:1, they've just cut the top and bottom off. Shots that have black bars down the sides are (at the end of the part2 stuff):

-Jason on the floor, dropping the machete, dragging himself along
-The slow zoom in on Jason's mom's head
-The opening titles in their entirity.

After that it goes back to 2.35:1

All of the above mentioned shots crossfade into one-another, probably why the two shots before the titles are in the same ratio. The film looks okay in 2.35:1, wrongful matting isn't as obvious as in EVIL DEAD, HORROR OF DRACULA or NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET for example, but it does really look as if has been cropped from a less wide ratio.
If for some reason the titles had been done less wide, they'd have been included in that way, mixing them in with the previous 2.35:1 shot, but as the crossfade goes from a shot with bars to another, I'm pretty sure it's cropped.

Actually, the aspect ration of Part III is 2.65:1 (according to Gerald Feil the DP in an interview with WIDESCREEN magazine a few years back). This may be the result of the overlapping images though.

2.65:1? That would make it even wider wouldn't it?

there are dvds appearing on ebay to have the actual 3d version of F3! they are most likely bootlegs though.

Never heard of a legit release of this, but who knows. I wouldn't bet on it, still cool though.

Has anyone shelled out the cash for one of these discs. i have a bootleg VHS of this film and while the 3-D is amazing, the picture is a bit washed out (typical bootleg). If this is taken off a decent master, I ma more than willing to cash out some major bucks!

yep bought one have not got the glasses though , but i will,,,,,
still bootleg quality , but there is some guy on the net who is selling it with legit box art, so it definetly had a legit limited edition release.

Not necesarily. Colour photocopiers, scanners and printers are very good nowadays.

Still, it may be a legit foreign release. And does the 3D work for this? Is it the shuttered system? polarized doesn't work on TVs.

The red and blue glasses work fine on my big rear projection tv. I put in the Nightmare on Elm Street 3d disc and it looked great. I don't know why people say this doesn't work very good I liked it.

F13 3 wasn't shot using the red/blue system. Its used the polarized system, which is hard to convert to TV useage. FOr me, the Freddy's Dead 3D mostly didn't work. Bad choice of colour shades, I can see both colours through each lens.

Are you sure F13 3D didn't use the red/blue glasses? I saw it at the theater when it first came out but that was a looooong time ago. I could have swore it was the red/blue ones. It's weird but the Freddy's Dead 3d looks better on my 47 inch rear projection tv than on my 32 inch direct view tv.

I can confirm that part 3 never used red and blue glasses when shown in theaters. I remember it like it was yesterday.

I have the field-sequential 3-d version of Part 3 on DVD-R and my copy is perfect, no washed out look.

I didn't buy it from e-bay because I kept getting burned on bad 6th generation copies. Lucky for me I met this guy that was hosting a 3-d movie festival in Austin and he had a 1st generation VHD which he transferred to DVD-R for a small fee.

Fart Lighter

Stone, just out of curiosity...What ratio is it in?

And your post proves something to me; That if some guy from a festival has a copy to convert, that Paramount canc ertanly put out a 3D version...But what chance of that is there? Christ, paramount are such a bunch of assholes.

And while I'm at it... does your clear print of FRIDAy have Japanese subtitles. I see 2 versions (one with - one without) on EBAY and I'd rather get the better quality of the two:glasses:

stone88

To answer the previous two questions: The field sequential 3-d DVD-R is letterboxed 2.35:1 ratio and yes it has the japanese subtitles but they are below the picture so you don't even notice them.
In fact, Part 3 is the only Paramount title that I havn't purchased since I have the real 3-d version.

My R1 dvd is 2.35:1 also. It looks beautiful, too bad I won't be buying anymore until some extras get on them mofos.:banana:

I'm not bashing Paramount, I mean atleast they released them, I just won't be buying them right now.:banana:
