    I've always wanted to check out Bottle Rocket. Now that its coming down in price, I might. Anyone know if its 16x9 enhanced?

    It's my duty to inform that Columbia's Legend of the Red Dragon (a Jet Li flick) is non-anamorphic and dubbed-English only in 5.1 and 2.0 formats.

    Opt instead for New Legend of Shaolin from Universe or perhaps any other incarnation with this movie's original English name. (edit) Do this for the Chinese soundtrack and to avoid any possible cuts made for Legend of the Red Dragon; Universe's New Legend of Shaolin is also non-anamorphic.

    All it says is Widescreen 1.85:1....is that anamorphic widescreen or no? I dont visit DVDEmpire enough to know where they would indicate that or not.

    Aren't nearly all Columbia/TriStar widescreen titles 16:9 enhanced? Outside of the one non-anamorphic title mentioned in this thread, I can't think of any others.
