I've always been a fan of widescreen releases, and it pains me to have to admit that, in my opinion, with just a few exceptions, Chris Columbus and his crew persisently (though regrettably, not consistently!) compose the picture for the standard 4:3 proportions of a TV screen, rather than the 2.35:1 scope of the wide cinema screen. As a result, on the basis of image composition alone, it is very difficult to recommend one version over the other.I have always bought the widescreen over the full screen, and I will this time around too. BUT, I'm curious as to what you experts think of the above.
