Question for film geeks & a poll for everyone...
Hey folks,

First, I'm a big fan of letterboxing on home video, and I usually try to figure out what a film's aspect ratio is when I see it in the theatre. However, when I saw The Ring, I must have been too excited and/or creeped out to pay attention. Did anyone notice if it was 2.35:1 or 1.85:1?

Next, I'm curious as to everyone's age here in the Ring Forum. I'm an old fart of 33, and I'm wondering if I'm the oldest person here. By the way, I'm married with a little girl on the way, but I haven't yet asked my wife about naming her Sadako or Samara (just kidding).

Thanks everyone.

from an older fart...
I'm an older fart of 38! Anyway the aspect ratio was definitely 1.85x1; the LOTR preview was "letterboxed" before the show to allow for the "smaller" screen, and I absolutely noticed the borders on the side of the screen come in to accommodate the more narrow aspect.

I am 21, but I don't act any older than 11 or 12, I don't think... ^^; Hey, to get into the movie you have to be older than 14 (I believe) but they didn't say anything about mental age...

I'm 26...I feel like I'm 90 today, though...have a damn cold that just gets worse...

Weirdly enough, I watched Samara's tape like three times last thursday on my Mac...maybe tomorrow's my seventh day.

She never called, though. Must've been busy. :)

Hello, new Ringworms!

I'm 22, made last September 10th, but, I'm a veteran here... ... ... ... ahem.

I'm part of the older breed of ringworms, which means I'm terribly infected...no longer human, that is.:lol

I can tell people that I'm 28 for a little less than 2 more weeks. Then I start telling people that I'm 23.
