    Sorry if this as been asked before but i wanted to know for sure.


    ARe all HD-DVD movies full widescreen without any or limited black borders?

    Or do most have huge black borders?


    I ask because i watched kill bill on v+ the other day and it was full screen with no blackborders

    it shocked me because i had seen nothing but bordered HD samples of Kill Bill 1/2 for the last year or so?



    anyone?

    Almost all of the 21 HD-DVDs I've got are bordered 2.35:1 ratio format. The only 1.85:1 (full widescreen with no borders) are The Hulk, A Scanner Darkly and Enemy At The Gate.

    Kill Bill is 2.35:1 ratio. All films that are 1.85:1 will fill a widescreen. Hellboy is a good 1.85:1 film.
