This is still a work in progress....I know I'm still missing some so-called classics(Casablanca, Citizen Kane, etc....) but they weren't high on my movie wish list. All of these are in widescreen except of course for the older movies which aren't available in that format. I'm missing all of the Kubrick movies because they are only available in full screen & not widescreen(why?).

Which movies would you recommend?

All of these are definitely on the wish list & I always try to get either the SE's, LE's or CE's of a movie. I don't have any of the Dirty Harry movies...is there a box set of it? :hmmm:

Full Metal Jacket

Definitely on the wish list, but again it's only available in fullscreen....why? All of my movies are in widescreen & I won't breakdown & buy a DVD in fullscreen unless I'm positive it isn't available in widescreen. Why are all of Kubrick's films in fullscreen & not widescreen? :banghead:

There is, but I don't think any of them have any great special features. I haven't heard of a SE coming out soon for Dirty Harry either.

Kubrick question:

"They are only available in fullscreen... Why?"


Not sure if someone already answered this or not, but here ya go. All the movies in the Kubrick collection are presented in the ORIGINAL/INTENDED aspect ratio. However, that doesn't mean that when you saw "The Shining" in the theatres it wasn't in widescreen. It probably was. Your movie theater likes to fill up it's screen, so they project it as big as they can get... This cut off the top and bottom of the movie when it was seen in theatres. Kubrick filmed many of his movies in a 4-3 aspect ratio because the viewfinder on his camera was in that aspect ratio and Kubrick liked the "full exposure." When the DVDs were made of his movies, much care was taken to make sure that what Kubrick saw in his camara is what ended up on screen.

The Kubrick Collection is a MUST OWN...

The Kubrick Collection is a MUST OWN...

That's what I was gonna say... I also understand that Kubrick occasionally shot films at 16x9 ratio, but PREFERRED the 4x3 format, so would crop them down himself. The Kubrick Collection, even though it says "formatted to fit your screen," are what Kubrick wanted you to see.

Do not hesitate to buy his films!

By a quick count (in Word, looking for lines), I count about 390 movies in your collection...

That's NOTHING! I have just under 1,000 DVDs, another 350 or so VHS, 30-40 laserdisks, and another 30-40 betas... I should open a rental store.

Definitely on the wish list, but again it's only available in fullscreen....why? All of my movies are in widescreen & I won't breakdown & buy a DVD in fullscreen unless I'm positive it isn't available in widescreen. Why are all of Kubrick's films in fullscreen & not widescreen? :banghead:
Because that's how Kubrick envisioned them. His theatrical releases were actually chopped versions of his open matte process.

From http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/faq/

11/ Why are Some Kubrick films only available in the "full frame" aspect ratio (1) on VHS video, DVD and Laserdisc?

It seems to have been Kubrick's preference for his films to be shown in the 4:3 or "full frame" aspect ratio, because, according to his long-standing personal assistant Leon Vitali, that was the way he composed them through the camera viewfinder and if it were technically still possible to do so, he would have liked them to be shown full frame in cinemas as well. As Vitali said in a recent interview (2): "The thing about Stanley, he was a photographer that's how he started. He had a still photographer's eye. So when he composed a picture through the camera, he was setting up for what he saw through the camera - the full picture. That was very important to him. It really was. It was an instinct that never ever left him. [...] He did not like 1.85:1. You lose 27% of the picture, Stanley was a purist. This was one of the ways it was manifested."

The decision to release Kubrick's back catalogue as full frame only has been very controversial. The problem for Vitali and other defenders of the Kubrick legacy is that Kubrick never publicly voiced the preference now being attributed to him, so they are always open to the charge of over zealousness in protecting his legacy or even outright betrayal of that legacy. But this seems excessively harsh, Vitali' has been given the Hobson's choice of remaining true to his employers wishes no matter how anachronistic they seem (or may seem in future given the recent advances in home entertainment technology). Like a devoted acolyte, protecting his masters life work his position he will not yield to the clamour of criticism but will remain intractable in his resolve because he is not fighting for himself or defending his personal opinions, but those of the person he devoted half his adult life to serving. Ironically no one will ever know what would have happened if 16:9 widescreen TV sets became commonplace before Kubrick died -- he could might rethought his films one more time and chosen to transfer them to that widescreen ratio, or offered consumers the choice. Who knows? But one thing is certain, as long as his loyal staff and family still have a say in the matter, we will only being seeing his films in the format he wanted them to be shown in before he died.

Notes
(1) Definition of Aspect Ratio

The aspect "aspect ratio" of a cinema pictue is the shape of the projected image in terms of proportions of height to width.

1 : 1.85 means a rectangle that is "1" unit tall by "1.85" units wide.

Most films in U.S. theaters are now primarily shown in two 35mm widescreen formats: "flat" 1:1.85 and "scope" 1:2.35.

The 1:1.85 ratio is achieved by the projector gate masking the nearly square 35mm frame on the top & bottom to achieve a wider-looking shape. The unmasked 35mm film is where the term full frame comes from. In the post silent film era the full frame aspect ratio was called "Academy Aperture" and had an aspect ratio of 1:1.37 until the 1950's when the Academy Aperture was cropped to the widescreen ratios, varying from 1:1.66, 1:1.75, to 1:1.85.

Most films are shot "open-matted" with an image filling the 1:1.37 Academy Aperture, but the image is composed for its later cropping in the theaters to the theatrical aspect ratio. Which effectily means that the director must ensure nothing of interest must happen in the top or bottom sixth of the screen, because it will be masked out by the crop when the film is shown in cinemas

"Scope" or anamorphic photography is different and does not involve cropping, but instead has a wide 1:2.35 image squeezed onto the 35mm frame, to be unsqueezed by a projector with an anamorphic lens.

11a/ What aspect ratio were Kubrick's films shown in theatrically?

"2001," was Super Panavision and should be shown in 2.20:1 in a 70mm print. "Spartacus" was Super Technirama, which was 2.35:1 in the 35mm prints, but might have been cropped to 2.20:1 in the 70mm prints.

"Barry Lyndon," was released theatrically in 1.66:1, even in the U.S. since Kubrick insisted on 1.66 hard mattes being sent to the various theatres showing the film (1.85 is the common "flat" widescreen ratio in the U.S.).

"Dr. Strangelove," was released in home video in Kubrick's preferred "multiple aspect ratio" but there is no way it could have been shown that way theatrically since you cannot change projector mattes in mid-screening (although it could be shown in Academy 1.37 and various hard mattes could appear in the image, cropping it to 1.66 at times -- however, Academy 1.37 had pretty much become obsolete as a projection format in most theatres by the 1960's.) I saw it projected to 1.85 at the Cinerama Dome and the framing looked fine; it was a little "tight" so I suspect that 1.66 would look perfect.

"Clockwork Orange," probably should only be shown in 1.66.

"The Shining," Steadicam operator Garrett Brown has claimed that he was asked to frame for 1.85, but Kubrick since then has preferred that the home video versions be full-frame TV (basically Academy 1.37).

I think that "The Shining" and "Full Metal Jacket" would all look fine if projected at 1.66, even though I suspect that the original U.S. releases of both shown in the 1.85 format.

I never claimed to have a fantastic collection, but was looking for movies that I hadn't considered & should check into. :hmmm:

I was just harassing you... :thumb:

I'm a film geek... I very rarely rent. I mostly buy. I have so many movies I literally have them insured. For people that scoff at that, just go cheap for replacements -- $10 per movie (and believe me, that's CHEAP for some of what I own) -- and that's well over $10,000 in movies alone.
