Firstly, I wholeheartedly agree with OAR and widescreen, I've even converted a few people myself. That said, I want to take a devil's advocate position on something that really pisses me off in Ron's other thread. (also I don't want this argument to pollute Ron's worthy cause by adding this to his thread) Now, on to the controversy... Why do these idiots pressure studios to release in Pan and scan, but no one pressures filmmakers to film in open matte? I hate movies that are not widescreen, but I admit that the argument seems a little watered down at the prospect of full-frame open matte. Even the "Artistic Vision" argument gets a little soft if you were to know that the director WAS thinking about a full-frame release when the vision was hatched.
