    I've been waiting and waiting to find out the ARs of Buena Vista's new Movie Showcase series. I'm interested in buying as many as fifteen of the films coming out this fall, but don't want to place an order until I know if they will be Original Aspect and Anamorphic if applicable (I believe so in every case since they are all new(er) films.
    Specifically I'm interested in:
    Ernest Goes to Camp
    Ernest Saves Christmas
    Ernest Goes to Jail
    Ernest Scared Stupid
    Mighty Ducks Box Set
    Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
    Honey, I Blew up the Kid
    Mr. Destiny
    Swing Kids
    Captain Ron
    Spaced Invaders
    And I think there are a couple more but can't remember them. My most wanted title on that list is Swing Kids, I would be extremely upset if it were not anamorphic widescreen. It's getting very irksome not knowing if these titles are worth purchasing or not, why, when Buena Vista released a press release for the series, did they not indicate the Aspect Ratios of the disc?! Do they not want the consumers to know? Is the quality of the product so bad they wont even release specs for it? Or do they just not want my money?
    If anyone can provide me with the ARs of the series or can point me to a site that has posted the news I'd be very grateful. Digital Bits was supposed to post them, but never did. [​IMG]

    The Ernest films are said to be pan & scan with no supplementary materials.

    Most of these come out tomorrow, yet it is still unclear as to what is pan and scan and what is OAR, I know that Swing Kids Ernest Goes to Camp, and Captain Ron are all OAR, but what about the others?
    Anyone?
