    Also, didn't Columbia recently release a pan&scan of one of the Tran Anh Hung films?

    Count me in for another lost sale. I've waited, quite literally, years for this to come out as I've seen only bits of this movie. Didn't want to sit through it until I had it OAR, with good quality picture and sound. I guess I'll never see this now [​IMG]

    Princess Cariboo was also released P&S/FF only about a year or so ago. I don't know why DTS does this sort of thing, every so often, but it makes little sense.

    I hope this is an isolated incident rather than the start of a trend.

    I don't like this at all. We're sliding down the slippery slope. At the bottom of this hill is full scale pandering the pan'n'scam crowd.

    Call me "Chicken Little" if you like, but this is a disturbing announcement from Columbia, IMHO.

    For Columbia, this is now clearly a trend. I guess parent company Sony has decided that they do not wish to sell any of their widescreen TVs. Unfortunately, this is quite a bit more serious than Willy Wonka -- there is no family film fig leaf here... Time for some more protests!

    I had been wondering why I haven't gotten any replies in this thread from Studio and Manufacturer Feedback:
    Columbia: To Gillian without OAR!!!?
    I'm irritated by this release. If you are too, please include your thoughts in this thread. Non-OAR is starting to proliferate. And it's affected yet another title that I would have purchased otherwise.

    The DVD won't have an old transfer rehash... it's a new hidef transfer.

    Patrick is showing that the packaing indicates "Remastered in High Definition" but is only Pan & Scan. Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland, Matilda, Thomas and the Magic Railroad...and now To Gillian. [​IMG]
