Help Full Screen of Home Alone 2?
#1
I know the Blu Ray already is 1.7something:1, but I'd love to find some fullscreen version. 

There's a VHSRip out there, but it's a TV recording with a logo on the right side. There's also a TVRip but it also has a logo on the right side.

I also found these two laserdiscs listed as 1,33:1:

I remember SilverWook mentioning that although these are listed as Pan&Scan, these sometimes are actually Full Screen (in the Brazil OM thread I made). Anyone have these to verify? I could probably pay for one too, as it doesn't seem prohibitively expensive.

The reason why I'm curious is I saw this nice print of Home Alone 2: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1990-HOME-ALONE...2396163821

Has some nice screens and is also fullscreen. Was playing with the idea of a hybrid full screen (with that new avisynth tool) with a regrade to the 35mm based on those screens.

I suppose some DVD or UMD would do as well, but I can't find a full screen DVD.

Only HDTV I found is 16:9.

I remember on Rewind there was a Mainland China R6 NTSC DVD release by Excel/Fox listed that was 1.33:1 with a DTS 5.1 ES Eng track and some Mandarin tracks (I think it's gone now as the elitists over there think all R6 Chinese DVDs are boots). I'm also sure it's 1.33 transfer is based on the old unmatted master used for VHS/LDs up to the 1st non-anamorphic US DVD. I haven't seen a copy and they may be hard to get, even on paid torrents, so good luck in your search.

I think Excel also made a R6 DVD of 1st film, but I heard that one was 1.85:1 widescreen so it was probably based on the 2006 Family Fun DVD transfer and isn't worth hunting down (unless more reliable specs come up that indicate it was 1.33 like the R6 DVD of the sequel).

So far I've found a Mandarin Chinese DVD of part 1: https://www.amazon.com/Alone-Mandarin-Ch...B004FDJ1FS

Not DTS though. It does date back to 1990 though, if the article description is correct.

Excel Chinese DVDs are usually great; they often have those DTS 5.1 ES tracks never found somewhere else (I do remember The Abyss in particular).

I don't always go by Amazon's descriptions, which are usually very choppy cut and paste jobs done by primates banging on keyboards. That one IIRC should have DTS ES 5.1 but I believe its widescreen as I said in a previous post, and may not be useful unless it's mix is drastically different than the DVDs or the BDs
