    Widescreen, without question. I don't know why anyone would want fullscreen.

    One screen to rule them all,
    One screen to find them.
    One screen to bring them all
    And in the dark bars bind them.

    If I had it my way, I'd have a full theater sized screen in my house. You lose too much effect with fullscreen.

    I'm a widescreen nut. Give me the entire picture... no pan and scan for me. The picture's always clearer and brighter in Widescreen.

    Heck before DVD's came out, I even used to buy all of my tapes Widescreen- I didn't care I spent more money.

    Widescreen is my choice unless it is a small tv or a comedy than I don't see the need for Widescreen.

    Widescreen. For several reasons.

    1. It is the original picture as composed by the director. The pan and scan version is the picture recomposed by the telecine operator.
    2. If enhanced for 16:9, the scanlines will be placed tighter, making the picture look more stable. It can also be more detailed if the disc is mastered well.
    3. The black bars are excellent places to put subtitles, they will cover little if any of the actual picture. This doesn't work as well in 16:9 mode though.

    When I was younger I used to think that widescreen cut off the top and bottom of the picture for some reason. But now I find that wisescreen IS immensly superior. :)

    Most definitely WIDESCREEN. :cool:

    Fullscreen enthusiasts should be strung-up and used as human pinatas. :)

    Widescreen. I feel kind of ripped off after watching sometihng in fullscreen. I mean, I'll watch a film like Bringing Down the House in fullscreen if I have to, but not important films (SW/LOTR/etc).

    Widescreen or bust! I discovered that I had accidentally bought a full screen version of a movie nearly 2 years after I bought it. I traded it in at electronics boutique and it took nearly 3 months for me to find a widescreen version.

    Widescreen, of course. I can't understand people who prefer fullscreen.

    It was so horrible watching TPM VHS beginning titles and guessing what were the letters in the left and right, which weren't seen in the fullscreen. And it's interesting to find screen captures of WS movies, which I have in fullscreen, and notice how much stuff is not visible in fullscreen.
