As mentioned in a previous thread, I'm planning to do a series of short articles in the Minneapolis Star Tribune (a large U.S. daily newspaper) called Widescreen 101. The articles, which will have to be crafted carefully to run in a small, formatted space, will be aimed at general consumers. Basically, I'm answering the call to educate consumers about widescreen in a mainstream way. But I'm looking for suggestions on what movie to use as the example for the first installment on "why are there black bars on my TV screen"? I'm familiar with the usual examples, but they don't meet my criteria for the perfect example: * A movie on a Region 1 U.S. DVD that's currently available. * A DVD that offers both widescreen and P&S options on the same disc (or the same set, if it's a double-disc set). Widescreen DVDs that have no P&S option are not ideal, nor are DVDs that have separate P&S and widescreen releases. The idea is to make it as simple as possible for readers to see for themselves what I'm talking about. * A 2.35:1 ratio movie--or one in which there is a dramatic contrast between the widescreen and P&S examples. * A popular movie that most people would know or at least know of. The bigger, the better. My favorite comparison example is The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, but the DVD is widescreen only. Failing to find something that meets all of my criteria, I'll probably use the "why widescreen?" examples on Pearl Harbor or Die Hard. Anyone have suggestions? Please keep the criteria in mind and stay on topic. I'll ask that the thread be deleted if this becomes a free-for-all. If I end up using a movie suggested here, I'll send a DVD to the first person who mentioned it.
