    Several of my favorite films are available only in MAR (modified aspect ratio), with no OAR (original aspect ratio) version in sight:
    A Christmas Story
    The Jerk
    The Karate Kid
    True Stories
    Warlock
    What other MAR-only DVDs are you guys waiting for in OAR?

    I agree with the "All of them" statement but the one I'm craving the most is Christmas Vacation. It's most appropriate this time of year but this flick gets played 4-5 times a year in my household.
    They need to OAR this film............BAD!!!!
