    Every site that I went to that had information on the aspect ratios said that the disc contains the widescreen and full frame versions of the film.

    Columbia has been quietly removing the widescreen version of several films that previously contained both P&S and WS. They were usually flippers, and are now one-sided P&S only. These tend to be titles reduced to about $10 retail, which is still $10 too much.

    I'm beginning to think Canada got all the WS/FS versions of SpiceWorld. My local Walmart had a tonne of them during their boxing day blowout, which up here lasts for about three weeks. They we're $6.88 Canadian and I'm afraid I must admit I bought one. Oh, the shame. I actually thought this film might age better than it has. Perhaps I'll look at it again in ten years and see.

    I found Idle Hands there in WS. Out of the whole bin of fullscreen ones one emerged that was WS.

    What was the point of pressing new FS-only DVD's?

    The 10 people who wanted the DVD already bought it.

    My last visit to Wal-mart drove me nuts. So many DVD's that were nice priced that I wanted. All of them were foolscreen. The only widescreen titles they had were Widescreen releases only.

    2 DVDs for 11 bucks is a steal! I wish I could find some good ones. I got Rambo 2 and 3 from there once. But fullscreen is so 'popular' amongst families. It's too bad!!

    There it is - your official Inevitable First Threadcrap! Frankly, I'm shocked this thread made it to seven posts before this happened, but I still thought I should commemorate the event...

    Wow didn't know that using a DVD-5 instead of a DVD-10 could make so much of a difference in cost [​IMG]

    As mentioned, Columbia released a lot of the previous flippers as fullscreen only. Who knows why, but they did it.

    They are all open matte titles though. No panning and scanning.

    Idle Hands for $5.50? It's a horrible movie, but I'd say the price is well worth it for seeing Jessica Alba in that angel costume...
