If Donaldson wants the disc to be 1.78:1 then thats his choice. Its my choice not to buy it if thats the case, though. I buy films to watch them like they are in the cinema, even if the director thinks they are "improved" by changing them for home release. Thats why I bought the theatrical cut of Fellowship, thats why I still have my VHS tape of Aliens, and thats why I don't own many Kubrick films or Apocalypse Now. If I'm prepared to pass on The Shining because its wrong I'm hardly likely to bother with this one.
