    Note the signature... I will NEVER buy a DVD of a film that isn't presented in its original aspect ratio. In fact, I have pretty much stopped buying widescreen DVD's that aren't anamorphic.

    I avoid all non-OAR discs whenever possible. I very much prefer anamorphic transfers for 1.66:1 and higher, but it's not a big deal for 1.85:1 and lower to me. Some Like It Hot isn't anamorphic, but the quality is pretty good. It technically doesn't lose any resolution, but it doesn't gain any, either. I will avoid 2:1 to 2.76:1 films that are non-anamorphic unless it's exceptional like The Abyss.
    Of my 80-some DVD's, only one is incorrectly presented (excluding the cheated 2.75:1 transfer for Ben-Hur...but that's another story) and it's Vegas Vacation. I'll admit that I haven't viewed it since January of 2001. I very well could view it more if it had been matted. [​IMG]

    I bought "Vegas Vacation" on LASERDISC, along with a few other movies Warner messed up on DVD. If this happens with any forthcoming movies though, I won't even HAVE that choice anymore!!
