    Hi

    Please Release a Widescreen SPecial Edition on "The Bodyguard" Whitney Houston's Performances make this film Worthy of Special Edition DVD Treatment. A DTS track here would be appropriate too. I have long wanted to add this film to my collection but as I've said many times before Pan and Scan = No Sale!

    This is a great movie and one I would buy in a minute if it were OAR 16X9. I can't imagine why WB isn't doing something with it. Hello WB, are you there? Do you hear us.

    I know, but it's still happening sometimes. These first P&S only releases caused a LOT of hatred of the DVD format by the laserdisc fans.

    I have the LD too & I would buy a nice OAR DVD version pretty quickly. But I have BIG doubts above the backward thinking execs at WB.

    The only thing that has kept me from buying this movie is the fact that it's Pan And Scan. Please release a widescreen anamorphic transfer Special Edition of The Bodyguard!! I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
