Any news about whether One Deadly Summer is widescreen or pan/scan? The Amazon page lists it as 1.33:1; IMDb has it as 1.66:1. Other than that, it's a pretty cool movie!

I'm not sure. Bayview's website didn't have their May releases listed yet, but I don't typically trust Amazon with regard to a DVD's aspect ratio.

Can't wait for "Bluebeard." Love Brellait.

(Also really like Burton's "Batman Returns" funnily enough... who's with me?... no one?)
