    Anyone else disappointed that Columbia went with 2 different coverart pieces for the Widescreen and Fullscreen DVD editions?

    Were I buy based on covers, I would have preferred the cover for the Fullscreen edition.

    Boo!

    But the second cover is also the fullscreen edition cover.

    I'm guessing there is no "original threatrical edition" in widescreen available.

    I like it when they use different cover art for WS and FS (this doesn't seem to be the case here, but for Indiana Jones it is)

    It's hard to make a mistake (some DVD are virtually identical)

    And I think it's fun to have different cover art, I wish the Widescreen was always the coolest, but it's not a big deal.

    Hopefully people who didn't really know about the difference will do a bit of research and find out why "Wider is better"!

    In this instance, it just feels like Columbia is suckering people into buying the fullscreen with the more attractive(IMHO) coverart. Grr...

    Not planing on buying this, but the WS version looks unusual and better overall, while the FS looks just like any other actiony cover.

    Have to go with the widescreen cover myself for best looking of the two. The full screen one looks alittle cheezy.

    I like the widescreen unrated cover. It's the original poster art.

    I wish that in the future, they would differentiate WS/FS by coverart. The widescreen version can have the original theatrical poster as the coverart and the fullscreen can have floating heads [​IMG]

    I just wish they put the word unrated in a different place on the front of the box [​IMG]
