    Carpenter's The Thing - it is an excellent DVD at the moment but it really does need the Anamorphic treatment.

    Commando, Deep Impact and Big are avilable in anamorphic widescreen in Brazil R4 NTSC really cheap. True Lies was also available but it's now discontinued, though it can still be found on some retailers.

    If anyone is interested in Brazil's R4 NTSC rare DTS or anamorphic titles check out the "Rare DTS and/or Anamorphic titles (Brazil R4 NTSC)" thread in the Regional DVD Area forum.

    probably all have been mentioned but here are mine:

    Armageddon
    Abyss
    The Thing
    From Dusk Til Dawn
    Happiness
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1 and 2)
    Office Space
    Vertigo
    Showgirls (not joking!)


    funny thing is, apart from the Texas Chainsaw discs, the non-anamorphic versions don't look too bad. I actually thought Office Space was anamorphic until i realized my dvd player was scaling it. Same with the Thing and The Abyss.

    For this list to be truly helpful, someone (*cough* Justin Hargis *cough, cough*) needs to create a master list, check it for accuracy, & frequently update it as people contribute new titles. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of random posts with lots of repeated titles.
