Wow... I don't think about any of this stuff when I'm watching a movie. Lot of food for thought.
That is what I was trying to get at in my last post.
Ah, yeah I see that bit now. When Disney first released their Platinum DVDs they actually framed the picture in a black box I assume for that very reason, and some HDTVs had a setting to emulate overscan because of all the weird stuff that popped up on the sides of the picture.
For those interested, The World's Finest has posted a review for the Batman: Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray release. Click on the image below to check it out.
The blu-ray specs:
With these options, there should be little reason to complain (other than the lack of extras).
It's kind of weird to watch cinematic trailers from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. I feel like back then, trailers were far more simplistic previews of movies to come, as opposed to being events within themselves.
I miss those days. I can't stand all the samey trailers that assault the senses. And lots not even talk about the trailer for trailers nonsense we have now.
Hoping to pick the Blu Ray soon. I own the old DVD but bought it years ago for like three dollars so I don't mind double dipping
All I know is... the movie looks good and I'm glad I have it on Blu-Ray. Life's too short to worry about these little aspect ratio nitpicks.
For those interested, comparison pictures between the Blu-ray and DVD releases of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm were added to the animated feature's Blu-ray review page. Click the images below for an example.

It's......so.......dark. I'm astonished this is such a day vs. night comparison with HD vs the DVD video.
I was tripping out from the start with the opening title sequence.
Blu ray is too bright. Remaster quality is impressive, but the Joker looks perfect white in dark enviroments and that doesn't make sense. They went a bit overboard with the color correction imo.
I think that if you went to look, you'd find it's not so different from JL + JLU appearances. Believe me, seen a lot of remasters of 90s anime, & it's not the first time work like this really pops when it turns up in HD. It may be a shock vs what one is used to, but it's also nonetheless closer to the "real" look it was meant to have.
Mask of the Phantasm is a truly special animated film and it's incredible how successful it was at integrating different eras from the history of Batman in the world of comics, while being able to create something distinctive, original and fresh at the same time (the Joker scenes are priceless and Mark Hamill gave us one of his best animated performances).
Speaking of which, I am currently looking for a potential Mark Hamill (Joker) impersonator for one of my non-profit projects (it's very much tied with the world of DCAU; it is a smart satire on the present state of Joker in general) and was wondering if you guys (BTAS experts) would know someone that I could get in touch with about this?
