    I read a review online (wish I had kept the link) where the reviewer stated the the DVD release was "OPEN MATE" and not PAN & "SCA'M'"
    So which is it?
    Is the "FULL FRAME" release really a "OPEN MATE" release or is really a PAN & "SCA'M'" release..
    Like many others all I can find locally is the packages listed as "FULL FRAME"
    --David
    Will not buy PAN & "SCA'M'"
    Might buy "Open Mate"
    But prefer "Widescreen"

    With all the special effects shots, it will be P&S. There might be a few open matte scenes but for the most part, it will be P&S. Get the Widescreen version.

    That would be "open matte" by the way, not open mate. An open mate is a good thing to have, but that's a completely different hobby! [​IMG]
    Anyway, if it isn't OAR, it's no sale as far as I'm concerned. Movies are not TV shows.

    Open Matte, P&S, whatever. It's Full Frame and MAR.
    MAR-shmar. I'll pick up the OAR version today while I'm getting Star Wars. We HTFers fought for a widescreen version of this title, and today we get it.
    THANK YOU WARNER BROS.!!

    If you can find it Dave. I had to order mine along with Shrek to give the retailers a chance to get it in. Wal-Mart brought out a display last night after TPM which had VHS and fullscreen DVD. Had there been a WS DVD, I would have purchased it.

    BestBuy in my area had all "FULL SCREEN". I went to Fred Myer and they had 2 WS and a bunch of FS. I hope the shortage of WS means that people are buying the WS version and not FS.

    Cats & Dogs was filmed open matte, but the gazillion effects shots may have been composed at a matted ratio.
    It's hard to tell...maybe someone could post comparison pictures of the FS and LBX versions to show what the differences are.
