What goes on in the mind of a Pan & Scan or Dub lovers? What other convoluted viewpoints does your uneducated movie watcher have about movie formats? I think a good way to educate these types of people would be to place a better disclaimer in front of "modified" movies. Instead of the "this movie has been modified to fit your screen" junk, they should show it visually and say "this movie has been cropped to fit your screen." Of course, these types of disclaimers should only show (forced, that is, shown EVERY TIME the movie starts) up on the Pan & Scan versions. It would only take like 10 seconds (or maybe it should be longer, you know how short of an attention span these people have!). Even more so in need of education are the issue of Dubs vs. accurate Subs. Before any Dubbed presentation, there has to be some mandatory forced attempt to inform the viewer that the original presentation has been altered. A short disclaimer should also give an clip of a dubbed line while showing how dramatically different it is from the subtitles. What other issues does your uneducated movie person have? There is the mono vs. multi channel sound issue of remixes but it doesn't seem like many people would go nuts over it. Then there's the lack of respect for Japanese Godzilla movies or foreign movies in general by non-fans, calling it an inferior man in rubber suit all the time (those bastards!! puppets & miniatures are still a popular tools in the industry!!) Or those people who think the Matrix and Crouching Tiger invented martial arts (idiots!!). OR that animation is an inferior art that can't be taken seriously. OR that "old" movies suck just because they are "old" and that newer movies are automatically better just because of hype. but that's just my own issues. (sorry I just had to put those in!) So, I feel that forced infomercials in front of the start of the altered movie is the best way to educate the non-educated. But then again, if they still prefer the altered version, even when they know, (I know someone like this and I still can't believe it) then they're messed up and they don't deserve to but DVDs or watch movies. They could have screens like the mpaa ratings with a guy saying "the following movie has been altered in this way:" -edited -pan&scan -dubbed -sound remixed And has been rated B, Butchered! Is there any kind of org that seeks to preserve the original integrity of a film release? There should be! Studios need to be pressured to inform the general public!! There should be some kind of original film integrity manifesto!!
