First of all, NO. I am an enemy of non letterboxed editions of movies and films. I don't buy them. I recently returned my R4 edition of Monsters, Inc., because it was Pan and Scan. Or so I thought. And so the story goes. When I bought the R1, I realized the entire movie had been reformatted for TV, meaning that, instead of watching less of the picture, I was actually getting more of it. Interesting. Then I noticed how incredibly good my IMAX movies looked on my projector. Which got me thinking... And then, I saw the TV at my kitchen. If it was anamorphic, or widescreen, I would definitely need a smaller set in order to fit it in there. Which is not good. Maybe the solution is not less. Less as in "less height per width". Maybe the solution is more, as in "more image for your TV". Let movies be widescreen, with black bars on top and bottom of the TV. BUT... When HDTV comes, instead of a long, thin image, let's get a big one. We have the resolution now; let's now settle for less. Instead of watching a football match in widescreen, let's see a huge view of the field, showing exactly where the strikers and the goalie are. We now have the technology to make it happen! I guess I could sum it all up with "Say yes to OAR, NO to Widescreen sets!"
