So the German Blu-ray from Platinum Cult / Digidreams is in an unknown aspect ratio in between 2.10 and 2.35... :(

The upcoming French release should be in a proper 2.35 cinemascope and will feature an interview with yours truly (in French).

Actually I found out that most widescreen DVD releases all have different aspect ratios, ranging from 2.20:1 to 2.39:1 (commonly referred as 2.35). By doing comparisons and calculating ratios, it seems that it was shot on film with 2.20 ratio but that does not mean this was the intended framing... The thing is 2.20 is usually for 70mm. Inquiring about this puzzling matter...


MOW was on the cover of "Pariscope" (the Parisian "Time Out") on its theatrical release (July 12, 1995)

Isn't this shitty Super-35?

That gives a 1.37:1 AR that can be cropped to anything a distributor sees fit.

Not this one, you can tell, and it was confirmed to me by Perry Lang, that they shot the movie in real anamorphic cinemascope.

Maybe it was a not the same anamorphic lenses commonly used in Hollywood that the Thai or HK rental company provided.

Featuring a 4 min presentation by yours truly and probably the best HD master of the film

MEN OF WAR came out on this day 22 years ago in French theatres by the way.

I just saw a control disc, the film is presented in its intended cinemascope 2.39:1 aspect ratio, uncut, and this HD master displays a color timing or color grading that is far better than the German edition (which had a Blue/green filter and some DNR over it). Plus the audio is not compressed Dolby Digital like the German disc but DTS-HD Master Audio.

Again probably the best version out there so far...

i guess more Dolph movies will be getting blu-ray/dvd releases since with Aquaman and Creed 2 Dolph is in the more hype now.
