    Actually if you watch a movie both ways you see more in winde screen because its wider...theyre both the same height, I used "A Few Good Men" as an example for the wife in the court scene in regular you only see Tom Cruise in wide screen ou can see that Demi Moore was still breast feeding /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    some players seem to make the black area larger than others. I think anyway. I like widescreen, though I'd like a bigger TV. Do you think widescreen TVs have the black bars at the top and bottom of it?

    OAR is the ONLY way to watch a film. Anything else is poop. Assuming the film is created in "widescreen" it MUST be viewed in widescreen in order to be fully appreciated, otherwise you are missing significant information from the sides. Here are some great examples... with widescreen being demonstably superior...

    sample 1

    sample 2

    btw, you yahoos who buy "standard" 4:3 versions of films on DVD are going to look like real idiots when, in the near future, widescreen TVs become the only type you can buy and all of your old dvds have bars on the left and right sides...

    most movies that are twelve years old are new to me,i'm an out door guy and don't watch much TV. i call it the IDIOT BOX . i figure when i'm to old or crippled up to do sh!t i'll have that as entertainment. i still don't know why i got a 36in. TV, maybe to see the weather channel better from the kitchen? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I won't watch a movie in fullscreen. I've got a widescreen tv and the bars on the side annoy me, and I won't watch a streched image.

    nope! GOT TO HAVE the widescreen! Fullscreen sucks!
    I'd reather watch widescreen on a 21in tv then fullscreen on a 36" tv /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Re: wide screen DVD\'s,do you guy\'s like them??

    We have an entertainment center with a fixed width for a TV, so I figured I'd go with a wide screen TV. When I did the math I figured out the picture would be larger on the biggest standard TV I could fit versus the wide screen TV.

    For the longest time I didn't know that fullsize meant the stuff on the sides got cut off. Now that I know that I won't take anything but widescreen.

    But it is time for a bigger TV.
