In the end the marketplace, not Blockbuster or J6P, will dictate how movies are released on DVD, pan and scan or anamorphic 16 x 9. Blockbuster only cares about renting movies not aspect ratio,and right now we have a big problem that will take time to overcome. DVD's and HD TV was engineered to be viewed on a 16 x 9 HD TV. Therein lies the problem. The majority of the general public is viewing DVD's on 4 x 3 TV's. It just doesn't work DVD's and 4 x 3 TV's are incompatable. Watching 2:35 x 1 DVD's on 4 x 3 TV's is awful with letterbox bars taking up 2/3 of the screen. We are going to win this fight but to do so we are going to have to do much more than petition Blockbuster and Warner and others. By all means keep the petitions going but this fight has to be fought on several different fronts. The key to winning this battle is to convert the public to 16 x 9 TV's. It is starting to happen. Recent advertising from Circuit City, Best Buy and others have been centered around 16 x 9 TV's. The prices for these TV's are also dropping with many models selling for less than $2500.00. Even cheaper depending on the sales tax for each state and if you forgo the extended warranty. Once converted the public is going to demand all DVD's be released anamorphic widescreen. Let me explain the benefits of viewing DVD's on 16 x 9 TV's for those who haven't yet made the purchase. Besides film like picture quality all movies shot in 1:85 x 1 or less will fill the screen, no letterbox bars. Those movies shot in 2:35 x 1 will have very small letterbox bars on the top and bottom of the screen, approximatley 1 1/12 inches thick. They are by no means intrusive, the picture will fill 85% of the screen. As I have said we will win this fight because 16 x 9 will eventually become the majority. As it stands now we are going to loose some battles because titles will continue to be released in pan and scan such as the recent Sicilian. Please besides petitioning and boycotting pan and scan try to convince your friends to upgrade to a 16 x 9 TV. This will turn the tide.
