The Grinch P&S kicks widescreens butt.

DVDFILE has the full story. It outsold the widescreen 2 to 1! DVDFILE brings up a good question. Do all the DVD's that Blockbuster and Hollywood buy for rent part of the total?

Well, being that of the 45+ P&S vs. 4 WS that were on the self at Wal-Mart when I got mine, it may be a matter of supply, not demand. Infact, I had to return our origional purchase because my wife picked up the full screen by mistake.

I only think pan and scan outsold widescreen as pan and scan was offered everywhere compared to the widescreen which wasn't (look at The Mummy Returns, lots of stores offered both flavors). IMO, we will see if pan & scan will beat widescreen again come Tuesday. We got two versions of Jurassic Park III coming out, that, and it's going against one of the biggest blockbusters of the year (Rush Hour 2) which is widescreen only.

Are some of the people in this forum for real?
Yes we are. I got movies that you would classify as "moron movies" (Stay Tuned, 2Gether, The Rage: Carrie 2, Bring It On, Scary Movie, Toys, etc)... does that mean I'm a moron?

Tom has a good point, some of these movies that we complain about being in P&S are moron movies (ie. The Grinch, Cats and Dogs.) The only real value they have is to further our war against P&s by making one more DVD WS. As far as I'm concerned these types of movies are for kids and kids alone. I believe that OAR is important for all movies but we should not take it so critically with a movie like The Grinch. Honestly, do we really need to raise our kids in a strict code of OAR?

So Kids are morons? Were you just speaking of yours or everybody's kids in general?

Don't try and use the "it's for kids" excuse to somehow excuse the butchering of cinematic art.
And YES I think the Grinch is art, as are most films. Whether you like them or not does not diminish their artistic contribution.
I guess that makes me a moron too huh Tom? BTW, Welcome to the forum
