How is the aspect ratio on the BD incorrect?

Isn’t the OAR 1.85:1?

The framing/letterboxing on the Theatrical Cut and Director’s Cut on BD is consistent. However, the aspect ratio on the Theatrical Cut is stretched and pinched compared to the DVD and 4K transfer (correct aspect ratio). The Director’s Cut on BD shifts between the same amount of stretching/pinching and less stretching/pinching than the Theatrical Cut throughout the film.

The aspect ratio/black bars do shift throughout my version, but that is only because the BD’s should have if they wanted to keep a consistent aspect ratio.

(See screenshots for comparison) I hope that makes sense. 😃
