versions random full frame film cells
#1
We all know that there are movies shot in full frame, and showed in theaters in letterbox - as well as released in home video with the same letterbox, or, sometimes, in open matte - but sometimes final prints, instead of anamorphic, are full frame as well! It will be great to have some of them scanned, as the film full frame is... well, full? Happy

Comparison with home versions

True Lies - film cell Vs 1.33:1 TV capture

Do you see how much is lost? Sure, the whole frames were not intended to be seen by us, "mere" mortals (read: director's composition and such...) but hey, if they are available somehow, why can't we have a chance to see them?

Other cells ill follow ; too lazy to make further comparisons with home media, though, so I'll leave them to you! Wink

Thanks for sharing. It's quite sad we will never get to see most of them like this.

Well, the more are aware, the more chances we'll have to grab some of them!

IIRC, didn't Predator have a mix of hard matted talking shots and full aperture for FX and non talking ones like the above?

I know where you can get 4K scans from all these films, but the price is not small, an average of $ 1500 per film.

Main problem would not be the scan cost, but to find out those full frame films...

I think this is not a problem, merchants can always look at the material and take a couple of film shots for comparison, because they don’t want money for it, I was interested in this moment.

Funny enough, this listing for a 35mm print of Dirty Dancing is open matte and there is clearly a lot of picture info
