I thought for sure that this one would have already been on here but I did a search and I came up with nothing. If it's on here don't blame me, blame the search. I just need to know if it's flat or scope?

9 reels (reel 8 is VERY short)

Prints were struck in triple format. You will get a Dolby A print, a Dolby SR print, or a Dolby Digital print (depending on how smart the depot was in selecting which prints to save).

I remember when I opened up "Pulp Fiction" (which was in "04" -A format) back in spring of '95 and wondered about that very short 8th reel. Why of that short reel, I couldn't figure that out. I think labs likes to mess the operators up some in how much film to be mounted on reels. Course, this was the acetate era, and a bit heavier film was on hand.

The first week of "Pulp" didn't do worth beans, but the second week, it was like having a showing of "Rocky Horror" all over again-the crowds that were coming! We finally ran that flick for 13 wks until it finally died.

"Bubba Gump" blew "Pulp" out of the water that next year in the Oscars.
