    Where's a good page with an example of how much is cut off if you watch a P&S movie? I need to convince some people that widescreen is so much better. Any good pages or examples?

    A simple search of the forum would turn up multiple results. The SEARCH function is a great feature, make it your friend.

    The BEST examples...

    The "falling painting" scene at the end of Around the World in Eighty Days. P&S Version: Just see the painting, LBX version: You see Cantinflas in the windowframe

    The scene where Baby Clark Kent lifts Pa Kent's truck in Superman: The Movie. P&S Version: Looks cheap, LBX version: "Wow!"

    The chariot race in Ben-Hur. You get 15 minutes of blurs in the P&S version.

    The one movie that I would call the poster child of why letterboxing is important would be Ben-Hur. This movie is virtually unwatchable in the pan & scan format.
