Instead of the promised widescreen remastering, the discs contain stretched and distorted ‘fullscreen’ images of very poor quality.
Even at 4:3 the transfer is pretty awful. My set’s going back, pronto.
I’ve emailed the distributor and I’ll pass on whatever I find out.
It’s not looking good. The distributor seems to think that the quality’s acceptable and calls it a ‘multi-aspect ratio transfer’ – which means that it’s a 4:3 that’ll distort itself to fit whatever TV screen you show it on.
Disappointing, perplexing… I have to say, don’t touch it. It looks awful.
