I heard that! What a waste, indeed... The least they could do is supply a second dvd/side for the FS version, or just release it separately (or not at all...).
I don't know why anyone wants FS/P&S/etc. on an otherwise great-quality dvd movie. If I were stuck with a small or square screen, I would still prefer WS, and just sit a little closer (much preferable to all the left/right 'loss'). [/B]
Try telling that to the moron purchasers of the latest Hollywood crap movie.
"Duuh...why are there them black bars on the top of muh screen? I PAID FER THIS MOOVIE AND I WANT IT TUH FILL MY HOLE SCREEN!"
Pan and Scan, or "full screen" as the peons call it, is here to stay as long as the smokeless tobacco and NASCAR crowd dominate the movie-buying public.
