Well I'm not conflicted at all. I'd buy this if it were OAR, but I won't buy it non-OAR. I frankly don't give a damn whether you're losing picture on the top or bottom, or from the sides, you're losing picture. If the marketing morons think this will sell more as presented 'widescreen', then they need to at least make sure it's also presented OAR. As much as it galls me to see a dvd with a MAR presentation in addition to the OAR, it galls me far more to see MAR only. If marring a widescreen film is pan & scan, what do we call marring a 1.33 film (or tv show)? Crop & Drop?
