I just caught part of Fearless on Bravo and found it to be a really good movie. I liked what I saw so much I wanted to rent it from Netflix so I could see it in its entirety, but much to my dismay it is available in pan & scan only. It is always such a disappointment to find a movie that I had missed in the theaters only to find that the DVD release is not OAR.

The folks at Warner stated that there are no plans to revisit the title.

The film was shot hard-matted 1.66:1 (Allen Daviau does this will all his 1.85:1 films) and then soft-matted to 1.85:1, which means the DVD is at least partially panned-and-scanned. The LD, however, is widescreen and has far better composition.

I just picked up the LaserDisc for $1.00. I hope to give it a spin soon.
