"Anamorphic": "adj -- [NL anamorphosis distorted optical image] (ca. 1925): producing, relating to, or marked by intentional distortion (as by unequal magnification along perpendicular axes) of an image." To the novice DVD buyer, who might be unaware that Anamorphic = A Good Thing, terms like "distorted optical image", "intentional distortion" and "unequal magnification" surely can't be real, real pleasing! After looking up the term in the dictionary, an uninformed buyer just might be inclined to run like a scared rabbit right back toward the Full Screen section for all their future DVD purchases! After all, this novice disc-purchaser is going to probably think that FF is much better than that "awful, intentionally-distorted anamor-phucked stuff". He might think: Who wants a picture that's "intentionally distorted"?! I didn't really understand fully what the term meant until visiting the HT Forums, and other websites. Heck, I'm probably not alone here when I say that I'd never even heard of the word "anamorphic" before the "DVD Fever" hit. For those who have just a passing interest in Home Theater (and its terminology), I can easily see how this funky term, "Anamorphic", could produce a frown and a furrowed brow once a first-time buyer heads for the dictionary. Don't you agree that perhaps a clearer video description of DVDs, without including that confusing "A" word , should probably be utilized on packaging? "Enhanced For Widescreen TVs" seems much better and more easily understood by the masses. Anybody have any funny "WHAT THE HECK IS ANAMORPHIC?!" horror stories?
