I am very much a widescreen watcher, but you don't really get the full effect of WHY widescreen is so much better until you watch the same movie again in full. An example is Fellowship of the Ring. I, of course, bought the widescreen DVD the day it came out. My friend, a moron, bought full. He said to come over and watch it, and I assumed he'd have bought the widescreen. Let me tell you, that movie is terrible in fullscreen. You miss SO much and it gets dwonright confusing in battles. What is my biggest pet peave is how crappy MY DVD player is. It cannot read widescreen movies with a OAR of 1:85:1... and for some reason crops it INTO full. This is so bad because then it isnt formatted, just outright butchered.
