Exactly. We'll see how it works on a little screen in a few months though.

... I've read people celebrating QT's use of the extra large frame to make the closed set become a stage play.

Thinking about it, Polanski went with 2.35:1 (as wide as one can usually go) for "Carnage" which was actually originally a stage play.

They'll keep the aspect ratio though right?

Klapish went pretty large too with Un Air De Famille, which is a stage play too. And it works absolutely great. It's by far it's best looking film (and best film as a whole).

I suspect we'll see a "definitive BluRay edition" with all kinds of possible versions. As well as a couple frames from the original 70mm reel. And some real snow used in the movie.

Huh, so there are more differences between the Roadshow version and the DCP than formatting? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3460252/board/thread/252340889

Are they keeping the 2.76:1 aspect ratio for the wider DCP release?

According to QT (but we know how poorly reliable he is) there are a few other editing differences that don't impact the script but the 70mm version tends to have longer, unedited takes.

The shot of the girl singing with the guitar is probably much much better (I loved it in 70mm and the shorter version misses the best part).

I wrote that eminent member (no gay subtext) Groggy had pointed out the state of the art of the movie  before I saw it. After having watched it I may say that I could even raise his 5/10 to 6/10 or maybe even 7/10 because it made me laugh a couple of times. But still the review is correct.Some observations. The movie is an old style (I mean '30-'40's) locked room thriller filled up with apparently politically uncorrect dialogues on racism to give it apparent substance, but in reality numbly politically correct, all the more clearly so at the end showing us the sheriff and Jackson becoming pards. The reading at the end of the fake letter is pure Hollywoodism: gives you the goosebumps from embarrassment. Then I don't understand (but of course I do)  all the crappy discussions about the format: Tarantino could have shot this in 16 mm and it wouldn't have changed much things. Of course, the movie could have been chopped off an hour and it would have been better, as everything (as usual for T) drags: dialogues, actions and the rest. On the music I wrote already, it is hackneyed as it comes from M. But some of the atmospheric music looked backward at his '60's productiions, with the use of the choirs in the lead. But I can't remember a single strain. Of course, this is a movie I won't watch again. BTW, I didn't know that the word "paranoid" was in use back then.

It's interesting how all anyone seems to talk about is how it was shot in 70mm. There is very little mention of the fact that it was specifically Ultra Panavision 70 using anamorphic lenses. The number of films specifically shot in that way to give an aspect ratio of 2.76:1 rather than the standard 2.20:1 associated with 70mm are very few in number.

To me, the 70mm shooting, the 70mm screening, the use of Morricone music, the aspect ratio and the longer version are all the exact same topic: the idea is to come close to what a film was 40-50 years ago.

About the ratio: I've seen a lot of talk about it. It was more at the center of discussions when the film was in preproduction (I read tens of articles at the time saying that QT was using lenses that had been used on Ben Hur) but the (good) reviews keep mentioning the choice of shooting extra wide in a movie that mainly gales place in a closed room.

I don't have much to say about it myself. As a general rule, the wider the aspect ratio is, the happier I am. No gay subtext.

I've seen a lot of talk about it being 70mm and a lot of talk about it having a wide aspect ratio. I haven't seen a lot of talk about the fact that 70mm generally equates to 2.20:1 and that this is 2.76:1. Maybe people just don't know or care about these things. Ben Hur was indeed one of the rare ones in 2.76:1, but Lawrence of Arabia for example was the standard 2.20:1.

You are in denial.

Also: by shooting 2.76:1 rather than 2.20:1 QT is telling everyone he's got the biggest dick in the room.

Of course he is. If you cannot stand QT telling everyone he has the biggest dick in the room, why the hell do you bother watching any of his films? It's always about that. Every single Big Mac line, every cut ear, every black and white chapter is about him having the biggest dick.
