In regard to the supposedly "incorrect" framing of "Sins of the Father" I can't possibly find fault with it, especially since it is the only correct framing during this entire BD release that represents the DP's original intentions because he expected the areas outside the safe action frame to be cropped by the overscan of our 4:3 tube television sets, then.
And probably about 98% of lcd-televisions still overscan 5%. So you end up double zooming.
Everything is always framed with the whole 4:3 area, they do not use CRT-tubes when filming with film. They do know that a bit of the area is cropped but they will stay within the safe area of the whole image. Same thing with every film as a lot of matting is always a bit more than what the viewfinders showed. But a professional crew will not care about that but protect the whole area.
