ROCKY II
SPACEBALLS
WHAT ABOUT BOB
NOTHING TO LOSE
BEAN
TITANIC


I also need to pick up the ultimate edition of "Dirty Dancing" to replace my non-anamorphic copy. I just haven't gotten around to it. lol. 'Rocky II' is definitely on the top of my list though. It's the only film in the set that I have which isn't anamorphic. I'm sure I have a few other titles in my collection which lack an anamorphic transfer, but these are the ones I could think of off the top of my head.
My DVD / Blu-ray collection:

CraigL,

This isn't about other Regions. I'm narrowing the listings to Region 1 ONLY. Go chat in the multi-region room if you are going to say those types of remarks, they're not welcome in my thread.
Why can't some of us go region-free you say? Because we don't have the finances as we'd like. Sure, you might say I'm being narrow-minded and egotistical about this, but I'm narrowing the listings so they won't go all over the place with the other Regions.

That's what i was gonna say. Good "Thing" I only bought the non-Anamorphic for only $9.99 at Circuit City. It's the only DVD I have in my slowly building collection, (I'm making the right decisions on alot of releases and checking to see if there might be a better version), that's non-Anamorphic that's officially listed as such.

Let's also name some non-Anamorphic releases which are finally getting the Anamorphic treatment.
Remember, this list is for Region 1 ONLY so we don't overwhelm ourselves with titles. Need to keep it simple.
