    Have always thought C4 was always good for widescreen, what shocked me was they did not show it in its proper format of 2.35:1, saying that picture/sound were excellent, shame about the ads and the way they cut in, very poorly done.

    Channel 4 on Sunday is the only regular time to get a decent widescreen broadcast on terrestrial TV.

    Smallville is even worth watching. ;)

    Agreed, full marks to C4. Pity the film itself was a pile of old tosh (first time I'd seen it)

    RDB :p

    PS Time to embarrass myself with what is probably a stupid question: What is superbit? :confused:

    the 5th Element is a classic film...!!

    Superbit is a DVD which only has the film on the disc, no extras, goto www.play.com and do a search for superbit on region1.

    Thanks Rock Da Bass ;) I thought I was the only one. I saw it some years ago, and did not like it but every one else seemed to differ. So I decided to give it an other go, and got the same response, the monsters looked like Muppets, Chris Tucker :p, and Gary Oldman was way over the top along with the script, probably the first sci-fi pantomime. It made Judge Dread look like Shakespeare.

    When it first came out i read in Home Entertainment that the Empire in Leicester Square had just installed the best sound system in the land.On a trip to London i decided to sample this for myself,unfortunately this was the movie that was showing.Even the extra quid for a comfy"jim,ll fixit "type chair didnt help.All those Jean Paul Gautier costumes...strange film!!!
    Bloody good sound though!!

    mjn,

    Looked up superbit. You're right about it having no extras. You didn't mention it was to allow room for a higher quality datastream though. Nice one. :)

    Sorry about slagging off the film, but it was just on the wrong side of cheesy.

    Enjoyed 5th Element very much.

    Apart from Chris Tucker. He makes a 5***** film struggle to maybe 3*** at most on the Confuciometer™.

    Contrary to what I said above I think Gary Oldman is a fine actor, It’s a shame he keep getting cast as nutty villains.

    Come on, it was meant to be over the top and strange, it was made by Europeans for christ sake. Your all starting to sound like a bunch of Americans with no sence of humour. Lighten up and enjoy the ride.
