    Does anyone know if Columbia Tristar ever releases widescreen DVD's that are not anamorphic? I used to be under the impression that all their widescreen releases were enhanced for widescreen TV's, but seem to recall some talk about the quality of CTS DVD's recently going way, way down.

    At any rate, they've announced the upcoming release of two movies I want to buy, SON OF THE BRIDE and NINE QUEENS, and while online retailers have announced that they will be widescreen, there's no word yet on the 16X9 specifics.

    Thanks.

    A handful of older C-T DVD's are non-anamorphic widescreen.

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the only one I can think of...they may have released a handful of others. None recently, however.

    99% of CTHV's widescreen DVDs are anamorphic, though they don't always say it

    And how did they arrive at the magic number of 28 chapter stops? It seems like all their releases feature this....
