    Absolutely YodaFett...Once you go widescreen, you never go back.

    If you even have to ask this question, then you probably need to upgrade your Beta player to a VHS player. In a few years they are supposed to be coming out with thing called a DVD player, but don't worry about it, you have a long way to go first...


    I will not rest until they stop releasing movies in fullscreen format, it is a disgrace to any film.

    The only feeble, I mean, feasible excuse I've heard for Full screen is if you had a tiny, tiny TV, and the wide screen would make the movie too small to watch. I could understand that, maybe, but then I'd have to ask, why in God's name do you have a DVD player hooked up to a TV that small to begin with?

    I agree with Sebulba, get a new TV for God sakes.

    I prefer widescreen format so I can see what the director meant to be seen even though I still have a puny "standard" TV. And please... I haven't bought a VHS tape since I got my DVD player. I just wondered why the DVD was even sold in fullscreen format. Didn't mean to rile anyone up.

    Nothing directed towards you.

    This is just a very touchy subject because the only people who ever argue for fullscreen are people who do not understand the formats.

    We (my mom, my sister and I) came home from Texas and AOTC fullscreen was there. Hell, it doesn't matter to me if it's fullscreen or not... but, in all honesty, I'd prefer widescreen.
    May the force be with you.

    The only fullscreeners I ever come across are people who can't stand the black bars on the top and bottom....now, having the movie chopped up is more annoying to me than two non-moving black bars, but that's just me.

    Just the fact that you may miss $1-2 million worth of special effects in a "fullscreen" scene bothers me. I can just imagine some poor extra watching a broadcast and saying "Oh, my scene's coming up!"...and he's been mercilessly lopped off of the frame.

    Dude, that'd suck! Of course, I guess that'd be a plausible pick up line to file away for use. "Hey, baby, I was an extra in So_and_So, wanna watch it with me?" Then tell her that they must have edited the film to fit TV. Sorry... I'll go home now.

    Easy answer ...BOTH.

    There is give and take w/ both, so take both.
    I sometimes like fullscreen just because it's a larger picture and no annoying black bars, but if you spend the money on a DVD player you should go widescreen you just get more of what you're paying for especially w/ a movie like this. It looks great!

    neither, the movie sucked. I will buy "My Best Friends Wedding" on Beta. Money well spent.

    See? Now that picture would have been much more dramatic in widescreen format.
