    I bought a non-OAR DVD.
    I wanted to watch Deathtrap this weekend and none of my usual sources (public library, Hollywood Video, Blockbuster) had it available to rent. But I really wanted to watch it.
    Best Buy not only had one in stock, but it was $6.99.

    So, all I can do is pray that they re-release it in OAR so I can double dip. This is only the second DVD I've bought with the intention of double-dipping (Grease is the other).
    BTW, I watched at the end, and it says it's filmed in Panavision. That means the OAR is 1.85:1, right? Or is it more complex than that? (See, I'm trying to learn here. [​IMG])

    Yes. I said it's the other title I've bought with the intention of double dipping.

    I didn't mean to be confusing.

    My name is Micah ["hi Micah!"] and I broke down and bought MOONSTRUCK on DVD because I just needed to see it already and I know that it will never ever be released correctly. And I have issues about it. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Ken. Now that you mention it, I think it did say the "cameras and lenses" thing.
    And thanks for the absolution, Father Paul. [​IMG]

    I will buy non-OAR discs as long as a) there is not an OAR edition of the title on DVD and b) the title is obscure or non-commercial enough that a re-release in widescreen is unlikely.
    I have quite a number of Warner and MGM discs that fall into one or (usually) both of these categories.

    I don't think we're ready for a 12-Step program just yet. :wink:
