Agree 100%.Just finished watching it wow a massive improvement over the whedon cut,didn’t feel like 4 hours passed had the full cinema treatment at home with the family,sweets,popcorn and some pizza haha roll on the 4K disc will be rewatching it no doubt
Funny I like Watchmen but yet find it a slog.I signed up to Now yesterday. My first surprise was that it was in 4/3. I hadn't read up a great deal on it and I had no idea it wasn't in wide-screen. I have heard people raving about how good it was and how the 4 hours felt like 2 hours. I'm afraid I only managed about 90 to 100 minutes. I loved Watchmen but this wasn't doing it for me at all. I'm not entirely sure if I'll go back to finish it.
The 4K and Blu-ray will be 4:3Liked it. But not like 4:3 format. Beyond me why Snyder choose that format. Hate the black bars at both sides. I hope the 4K disc is not in that format. No buy for me then.
The 4K and Blu-ray will be 4:3
The film was shot on IMAX cameras 35mm with 1.33:1 aspect ratio
Zack Snyder’s intent was to have the movie, the entire film, play in a gigantic 1:43 aspect ratio on a giant IMAX screen,
The ratio 1.33:1 is the same as the 4:3 ratio of a television screen.
To see the film in 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 aspect ratio that means cropping the upper and bottom portions of the image for regular movie theaters to shown in widescreen that's what they did for the cinema release in 2017 and for home media releases

You see more image with the 4:3 aspect ratio as it means the image does not need to be cropped
Zack Snyder’s want's you to watch the film in it's original aspect ratio without been cropped for widescreen
So much positivity about this that even I - yes your eyes do not deceive you! - might give this a blast! Mainly because I didn't mind Batman - Dawn of Justice and I absolutely love Snyder's Watchmen. Don't get me started on the Watchmen TV series...
