I'm wondering what the reaction would be if Studios started offering 16:9 Pan & Scan Anamorphic versions of all films that were wider that 1.78:1 ?
I see no advantage to having a Full Screen 4:3 versions along with the "original" aspect ratio recording , however if the films were Pan & Scanned to 1.78:1 , anamorphically recorded , then those with Widescreen displays would benefit from all the vertical ,non-stretched resolution that is available .
Just a thought...
Scott.

And it's a none-too-good thought!

In the future, all pan/scam will be 1.78:1. They'll probably even butcher 4:3 OAR films like that as well. Let's not encourage them.
It's not just about resolution - most importantly it's the fact that original film information is missing from cutting off the edges! This ruins the whole film, at least it does IMHO.

Scott:
You'll get no support from me on this one. OAR or nothing.
