Widescreen vs. Fullscreen

August 5, 2002 at 12:37 am by alan  - 

Still debating over whether to buy the widescreen or fullscreen version of the DVD/video Tuesday morning? Just ask Aragorn, Boromir, and Gimli which version they prefer. This comparison image is a good illustration of the cropping that takes place on fullscreen video releases. The widescreen version is on the left, and the fullscreen is on the right. The image says it all. Thanks to Richard/darqleo. [More]

Update: several people have written in to let us know that the image above is actually not a correct representation of this particular shot’s appearance in the fullscreen version. However, for more examples of widescreen’s superiority to fullscreen, check out this series of images from the FOTR DVD. Thanks to Guitardedboy. [More]
