I would love to see someone(gilliam or otherwise) release a film that has different sections or scenes in different aspect ratios, just to fuck with everybody. As for Tideland, I'm holding out for a fixed dvd.

Looking at the dvd package, you'd never think they molested it. It seems packed with extras. I wonder why they would dishonor a Gilliam film like this...

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen Deluxe Edition coming in September.

Can't wait. Truly an underrated film. Any chance the old Criterion extras might find its way to this disc?

Is there any other confirmation of this? I haven't read anything anywhere else about it.

I hope the packaging is quality; the current edition of Munchausen makes the film look cheesier than a hunk of havarti.

I can now confirm that the rumored-to-be-correct region 3 (Hong Kong) release of Tideland by Panorama is in fact NOT correct, and has the same framing as the US release:

Moreover, it's a New Yorker style PAL-to-NTSC transfer:

I wonder if this will have the right AR?

Whatever happened to the Baron Munchausen re-release? It was supposed to be announced for September.

Is this the SD 2-DVD set only or also the HD DVD?

Apparently The Other Side of the Wind is going to be like that too. Welles apparently wanted a collage of footage with different film types and aspect ratios.

German DVD (rental DVD without extras) vs US DVD

The German Special Edition coming October 25th

HD DVD and BluRay on November 11th.
I believe the DVD is from their HD master and so the HD DVD and BluRay are also in the same ratio.

God, it looks so much better in 2.35:1. Great news!

And here I was thinking the 2.35 was just matted. Thank god, I hope it gets released properly now. 16:9 pan-scan, there's a new one.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen 2 disc SE is going to be released on April 8th, 2008. Amazon.com is running a poll to select the cover of the DVD.

At least the third one has a decent concept. The other two are the typical affairs of floating heads that we'd find in the worst covers thread.

I kind of like the third one, even if the execution is a little lame.

Is this going to be the long-discussed director's cut of the film?

The good news is that Munchhausen is getting a Blu-ray release as well.

Turns out Amazon.com customers actually have some taste. The 3rd cover is way ahead on the voting.

Apparently it took an entire decade and a poll to determine "people don't like ugly DVD covers". Who'da thunk it?

Special Features according to the Bits:

Quote:
Special features will include audio commentary with director Terry Gilliam & co-writer/actor Charles McKeown, The Madness and Misadventures of Munchausen 3-part documentary, 3 featurettes (As We Once Dreamed It, A Voyage to the Moon and The Baron & Bucephalos Charge the Turkish Gates) and deleted scenes.

Hang on to your old disc because I don't see any trailer listed (this is Sony's DVD policy - never advertise the featured movie on the disc it is being sold on) and it is quite a treat. Shame.
