Today, I went into my local Wal-Mart to buy Lord Of The Rings.Well while I was cashing out, some guy came up and ask the cashier What the difference is between Wide Screen and Full Screen. All the lady at the register said was Wide Screen has those black bars, and full fits your whole T.V. Now being a member here I could not let this guy go thinking that was it, That one had black bars and one doesn't. So I threw my two cents in. I told him that in full Screen you lose a chunk of the movie. That they cut the sides of your movie up to fit your screen. Then I told him that those black bars make your screen, well wider. So you can see the movie the way it was suppose to be seen. He just kind of looked at me, so I just told him that wider is better. I am not the best at explaining things, and we did not have the time to sit down and talk about it. I think that the 20 seconds we had, I did my best. Anyway he bought the Wide Screen version. I hope I did my fellow HTFers proud today.
