You want to do something about it, DO SOMETHING!
I think it is unfortunate that some people want to give up and just sit back and see what happens. But I'm very encouraged to learn that others are still willing to give it the old fashioned try.
My thoughts on this matter, though, are more targeted towards the financial implications for the studios. Since they clearly care nothing for the proper presentation of film nor do they regard it as the art form it is, I believe the key in fighting this battle is to get it accross to the studios that going P&S only is a money losing venture.
Of course, it's rather obvious that it is, but they haven't seemed to realize it yet.
So write letters, continue the petitions and above all never, ever buy a DVD that doesn't present the film in its OAR.
There is another thread going on about this right now, seemingly condoning P&S only and asking whether you would buy your favourite movie on DVD if it was only available non-OAR. Click here to view the thread. This plays right into the studios’ hands and will only give any lurkers the idea that if they force it on us, we will accept it. Be sure to chime in on that thread with a resounding “NO.” We mustn’t budge on this issue.
