    I was at a hotel, and it was an option for in-room movies. It was fun trying to pick out which shots were open S35 and what shots were pan and scanned. It wasn't a bad job, but it really lowered the epic feel of the film.

    I just got back from arguing pro-OAR at a Tolkien board. Some people were undecided as to which version to get, since they don't have large screens. I told them even on my 15" computer monitor I prefer WS. Unless they have a handheld TV, I can't figure out why anyone would want fullframe.

    Crazy. I'll never watch this off of TV. I'll buy the widescreen version so I don't ever have to see it butchered and ruined.

    Funny - I travel all the time and saw this as in room entertainment. The previews were letterboxed but I figured if I ordered it would be P&S. Glad to know I made the right choice and ordered .... well something else.

    I just watched this movie in letterbox format (my roomate has the VCD) and it looks excellent. I couldn't imagine it any other way.
