EdwardKarlinski,

Those disc were purchased about 2-3 years ago when I didn't care if a movie was released OAR. I have been a Widescreen supporter for several years but at one time I would buy any disc regardless of wether if was OAR or MAR. But that changed in July 2002, when I purchased my favorite movie which is Pumpkinhead, after that I no longer purchase an MAR titles from major studios. Those Mar'ed titles that I own which is only a few titles which be tossed out when the studios release a Widescreen version.

Eugene, if you really hold such strong principles, then throw out the SAR DVD's now. Why wait until widescreen releases? I thought you hated fullscreen as a matter of principle. By your logic, you should buy all movies which you want in full screen and wait until the widescreen versions become available. That is what you are doing with Cujo, Pumpkinhead, and Help. So, why not do it with others?

Get a grip man, they've already been purchased. He's changed his ways since then, but to scream fault at him for holding on to them is ridiculous.

I'd buy TWO copies of Miracle Mile on DVD if it were re-issued in its OAR. Hows that for rewarding good behavior?
