Ricochet (1991) Available in OAR in HD?
#1
Why this movie hasn't been released on Blu-ray is beyond me. It's pretty good and has a great cast.
So did this movie appear in HD in it's OAR of 2.35:1 anywhere or are we stuck with cropped version, like the one from Amazon?

It turns out that I'm not the only person who is interested in this question) I checked and check all the appearing versions of the Amazon, unfortunately everywhere the crop is 16: 9

Another 90s classic, Dead Presidents was the same for a long time. No 2:35 release. Only cropped 1:85 but then magically an OAR release surfaced in HD format. In the early 80s there were 2:35 LTBX releases of eg Fulci movies on VHS but I guess things have not progressed much since then. Soon there may be Pan & Scan versions again ...

It's crazy this movie has not had a decent release!
I loved this film on VHS and Ive been holding out for a re watch for almost 20 years!
Was there even a decent DVD release?

Does it have rights issues or something?

the movie was released in its OAR on DVD, but it was a horrible transfer.

BTW, Dead Presidents was shot Super35 so the VHS and 16:9 streaming/HDTV version out there show tons more picture info top and bottom.
