Please read the reviews of "Name of the Rose" on Amazon located here Here we have several people claim that the movie is only being released in full screen which is not the case as I have just watched it and it obviously is not. Then we have someone commenting on the review who goes to rail on against "corporation" that has released the movie in full screen because of their "greed". Then we have people complaining that the movie is in widescreen but are mad because it is matted, not in "true anamoprhic widescreen" (even though it was not shot in 2.35:1). Then we have another who has no idea what "matted widescreen" means and thinks that a full screen release has simply been matted to make it 'appear widescreen' when it really isn't. It saddens me that people are being dissuaded from purchasing items based on erroneous information. Just as annoying as people who advise others not to buy a DVD because it has those "stupid black bars" on the top and bottom.
