Black Bars on Blu-Ray's
Time

That’s because when you watch the film on cable, they cut the sides of the image off to fit it on a 1.78:1 TV screen.

The black bars are normal and every movie with an aspect ratio over 1.78:1 will have some level of letterboxing (black bars) on the top and bottom, and every movie with an aspect ratio of less than 1.78:1 will have some level of pillarboxing (black bars) on the sides.

Thanks. All I know is that I always have and always will find the black bars at the top and bottom distracting. Gotta zoom in slightly.

Anyone else think Empire Strikes Back's Special Edition is actually better than the Theatrical Cut?

As far as 1997 SE goes, yes. I’ve always loved the enhanced modern Cloud City look/colors and enjoyed that little scene where Lando is talking to the entire city on the mic. The only change I didn’t like was the awkward insertion of the Vader arriving on his Star Destroyer scene. But I’ll deal.

Anything 04 and after with Fett’s new voice sounding like he’s robotic or the Emperor looking like a giant Halloween mask from Revenge of the Sith, you can throw directly in the trash.

This might be more of a question for the techie guys out there, but anyway… always wanted to ask. Does anyone else have the black bars on the tops and bottoms of their screens while watching their SW Blu Ray’s? I’m wondering if perhaps it has something to do with the proportions of my 1080p Samsung LED which is kind of old now, from 2010. The aspect ratio’s for all SW blu ray’s of course is 2:35:1. There are no black bars when I watch the film on cable.

1997 Special Edition Blu Ray's

Hi everyone. Was just curious if anyone knew the odds of them happening, or if they are even out there somewhere. While they are far from perfect for me, I’m one of the few who prefer the 97 SE’s for various reasons (i.e. I enjoy a lot of the enhanced scenes such the approach to Death Star I, Cloud city’s more modern look, Fett’s original voice, as well as the combination of Vader not uttering no along with Sebastian Shaw’s force ghost and Victory Celebration which cannot be found in any other version of ROTJ)

Thank you.
