I don't have a 16x9 TV, but I have seen them and I do understand the importance of anamorphic transfers and the added resolution. My question is this: I often read comments here where people say "[Film XYZ] is a great movie that I love, but it's not anamorphic so I'm not buying it." I don't mean this to be insulting or antagonistic, but I am curious: what happens when a DVD comes out of a movie you love, but it's not an anamorphic transfer? Do you choose not to enjoy a film that you love because of that? Again, I don't have a widescreen TV so I guess I can't relate; the closest example I could use is that there are films I love with bad transfers, or made from lesser quality elements, like the Marx Brothers movies on DVD from Image. The quality isn't all that great, but I love those movies and they're worth having. I'd gladly go out and buy better editions if they ever came out, but I watch them enough that it's not worth waiting for me. I'd rather watch lesser quality transfers of Marx Brothers movies than not watch them at all. I'm sure this is probably a touchy subject for a few people, and I honestly do not mean to be insulting or cause any fights; I just don't understand how whether or not a transfer is anamorphic can be the only selling point.
