Fri. Dec. 8 1:15 PM  SHOWTIME

Showtime presents some movies correctly...some panned & scanned.
"The Proposition" (2005) is in what used to be, & still is, I guess,  called "Cinemascope".
Panning & scanning will ruin the wonderful cinematography of this excellent Australian Western.
So...if the screen blows up into fullscreen after the opening titles...I suggest that you turn it off & rent the DVD.

i believe it is how you get a "fullscreen" or 4:3 movie out of the original widescreen print... for some reason, many americans prefer the image to take up their entire TV screen, even if they are losing much of the picture

   Pan & scan came into play, because TV screens couldn't handle the large formats of films. Some stations would show just one person in a shot that originally had 2. It would look like the actor was talking to himself. P&S used to be worse than it is now, you could actually get seasick. Nobody really had a choice about it until DVDs. Fortunately you only see bad P&S in older movie prints on TV and cheap VHS casettes.

Finally caught up The Proposition today and yes its a very good but bleak movie.

Its a great looking movie(the rootsy soundtrack is excellent) and some of the imagery is very striking but in terms of style i couldn't really see too many parellels with Leones westerns because as well as lacking the overall humour theres no "Dollars" type gun play nor is one drawn emotionally into it like OUATITW or DYS though some of the acting performances are undoubtably powerful.

Also unlike Leone movies there isn't  a single likeable character that i can relate to,but still,i agree this is easily one of the best recent westerns i've seen.

The Proposition - 1/5


Oh God did that movie suck! I was so bored, no wonder why the western's doing so bad now. It's because the new ones are all crappy like this!

Hopefully 3:10 to Yuma will be very popular.
