    Hi
    I was recently looking at purchasing some Fox DVD's and I saw that Region 2's Home Alone 1 and 2 and BIG were all anomorphic Widescreen.
    Are the region 1 releases of Home Alone 1 and 2 and BIG all widescreen anomorphic ?

    Moving this to Regional Forum. In answer to your question though, Ricky, no the R1s are not anamorphic (at which point I will warn you that the disc of Big, UK R2 at least, is censored with dialogue alterations).

    Ricky, while I'd question if the R2s were true anamorphic transfers, sure I don't see why not. Reagrdless they would probably still look better than the current R1 releases.

    The Japan releases are true anamorphic.
