| Im sure the overwhelming majority of people who pick this up will be picking it up for their very young children who can't comprehend OAR anyway. |
That is the same ridiculous attitude that got us into this mess in the first place. Why did Warner decide to put out Willy Wonka in fullscreen? Because people believe, like you, that only small children are purchasing/watching "family entertainment."
You and the rest of the people that hold this opinion would be singing a different tune if you owned a 16x9 TV, like I do. Imagine trying to watch the movie on a widescreen set with black bars on the sides which are actually covering up a chunk of the movie as it was originally produced. Pretty damn frustrating.
As David said, No OAR = No Sale
I just wish that Warner would release both at the same time, even on the same disc. The movie is only 85 minutes long, both versions would easily fit on the same disc. (See the Columbia Muppet releases)
