    Just wondering if the VHS version of Pearl Harbor will be available in widescreen or Pan & Scan or both?
    Don't get me wrong I am planning on buying the Directors Cut in January and in fact have not bought a VHS movie since DVD came out,except for the widescreen version of Star Wars 1.
    If it is only in widescreen,will the average VHS consumer understand what they are seeing even if it comes with an explanation by the director?
    Or will a lot of VHS consumers complain about missing picture information?
    Just wondering...

    You want to buy VHS under the cover of darkness, Fine.
    But don't brodcast the fact.
    you were weak.
    and you are part of the reason it took so long for Star wars to come out on DVD.
    you buy VHS and you are compromising for a sad lack of quality.
    you should be ashamed.
    really.
    -allthough I guess it is your life and your money.
    ....okay, do what you like.

    There are so many movies not on DVD, as well. I recently rented Clash of the Titans on VHS the other day. If it comes down to a movie I want to see, I will watch it on SOME kind of format - even though I only prefer DVD. However, it's pretty rare for me to rent VHS. I don't remember the last movie before Titans that I rented in VHS.

    My daughter just got a TV/VCR combo for her bedroom a few weeks ago. She really wanted a copy of You've Got Mail, so earlier this week I quietly slid into the VHS section of my local retail store and picked up a copy, hoping that no one I knew would see me "slumming".
    When I mentioned to my wife the great "sacrifice" that I had made by venturing out into the VHS aisle, she laughed heartily (assuming that I was joking).
    Little does she know...
