Every other day there's a new thread expressing the outrage over some new pan-scan release, I mean ultimately how much new discussion can be prompted from a thread about the existence of a pan-scan A.I.? As far as I can see, as long as theres an accompanying widescreen version (and I know there have been a few notable examples without this necessity) whats all the fuss about. I mean, what do you care if the average movie-watcher wants the picture to fill his screen... sure it isnt the 'right' way of watching a movie, but then again, what do you care how a home-theater-layman cares to watch his flicks? It just seems like a BIG waste of time, energy and thought! So long as widescreen sales are good, and its been shown countless times that even though widescreen doesnt always beat fullscreen, its always high. Because of this, widescreen DVDs will ALWAYS be available, so if your constant complaints are in fear that eventually full will beat out wide, rest assured that this will never happen, and just cut out the whining! I'm sure i'll get some hostile replies to this, but on some level that hostility will be like that of those that angrily complain that there are black bars at the top and bottom of their screens - i.e. a lack of thought or understanding on the part of the hostile parties!
