4.5 Great film. Non-anamorphic DVD BacktotheFutureMay | 19/08/2014 | See all BacktotheFutureMay's reviews (6) The Thing is a really good horror film. However, I'll like to comment on the transfer. While it's not bad, be warned that it's actually a non-anamorphic transfer, so the 2.35:1 film image in enclosed in a 4:3 frame instead of a 16:9 frame like you would expect in anamorphic dvds. Granted in the description tab only says "Widescreen 2.35:1" so technically it doesn't say it's anamorphic. However I would expected an anamorphic dvd since this edition was released in 2011!
