Browsing on Amazon.com and found the following comment on the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' DVD page... Disney& other foolish studios that won't release full screen, November 29, 2003 Reviewer: Scott Mitchell (see more about me) from Wasilla, Ak USA This is an absolutely fantastic movie, but for Disney not to release a full screen version is disgraceful. Probably 95% of the population does not have widescreen TV, and yet the studios continue to force widescreen DVD's on us. Bless the few studios that put both versions(one on each side). I, for one, refuse to buy widescreen DVD's. And I will not buy VHS...get it Disney? I don't buy your movie. I rent the VHS and make a copy...now I've got the MPAA mad, and you could so easily make everyone happy, and yourself millions more to boot. Now for the movie...Depp is incredible in the swashbuckler role, being funny, cute, debonair, and just an incredible actor. The movie will keep you entertained throughout, and isn't that why we like movies to begin with. Highly reccomend for those who buy VHS and those with widescreens...for everyone else(90%)of America, hold out till they realize they are missing the big picture(FULL SCREEN RELEASES!!!) All I can say is this guy is about as informed as a can of mixed nuts. Poor fellow. Somebody forgot to tell him that Widescreen is the full picture.
