Does the Zooming on the new FRIDAY THE 13TH disc bother you?

The new FRIDAY THE 13TH Blu-ray and DVD discs have an image that has been zoomed in and re-framed 10.6% compared to the original theatrical ratio (and the ratio presented on previous discs). How you feel about this? Too small to matter, or too big to ignore?
Can't argue with a confident man.

Enough to keep my R2 DVD? Yes.

Enough to make the Blu-ray not the go-to version to watch? No.

I don't care. I'm not buying either new release, as I still have my R1 and R2.

I don't really care for the film, so it's not an issue with me...I love the second one though, so I hope they rectify this and it doesn't happen again when they get around to releasing part 2 on BR.

Please visit my site...It's the future!

Fuck yeah it bothers me. So glad I didn't preorder this. Original Friday doesn't get a lot of repeating viewings and I stuck to my 'If I don't watch it more than once a year, I aint buying it!' rule. I break the rule for some movies, but considering I have the Friday box set and the Friday R2 uncut DVD, I definitely aint breaking it for this.

I love seeing the reaction / discussion this is getting around the net. Nice job, Rhett! I'm a bit surprised no other reviewers really caught it, but I have to admit I might have missed it too if I didn't go the mega comparison like you did.

That sucks, I'm sure you don't miss anything significant but if I was a fan of these movies and had been looking forward to this right about now would be when I stop looking forward to this.

Yes it does suck and I am not going to buy it because of this. Just curious though, would you have noticed it hadnt you been comparing the different versions of the film? And if you noticed it before that, what scene did it jump out at you?

no way would I buy this. I have the older dvd release and I don't see any reason to upgrade to a defective release.
