Bought 'Robbery' this week. Packaging claims "brand new transfer, ratio 1.85:1"on the extra's blurb, but specs claim widescreen 1.66:1.
Well yes it is a 'new' transfer, because it has never been tranfered to DVD before, but the print used is certainly not new or even restored. Very damaged in the opening 30 seconds but evens out for the majority of the film.
As for the ratio. It looks closer to 1.66:1 but at least is widescreen and appears to have been origionally shot with a widescreen cinema aspect in mind. Transfer is divided into two parts/episodes as per the original television presention.
Fine film though. Sam Neill is exellent as capt.Starlight.
< Thanks for that.
Will try to get a copy of it.
EzyDVD seems the best place for online DVDs, unfortunately about 3 days before my pay went in they sold out of Robbery :( Bought a copy off ebay tonight so will hopefully have it sometime next week!
