The Major Dundee DVD at least is the correct aspect ratio (2:35). I couldn't believe my eyes when I started to watch the Sony HD channel broadcast. This is a frequent practice on TV -- it's the new "fullframe." Used to be they'd crop the widescreen pictures down to 4:3 for the old square TVs. Now they crop them down to 1:78 for high def TVs. Those 2:35 pictures are still missing info though in 1:78. I see 2:35 movies run at 1:78 all the time on TV -- that is, I see them for a few seconds here or there, but I won't watch them. The Undefeated also was cropped to 1:78 for broadcast. Ghastly.
