widescreen is better because you see the entire picture and feels more like a movie theater.

Most people don't know that even though you get to see more at the sides during a widescreen presentation, they have to scale it to such a degree that you loose some of the top and bottom. So no matter what you buy -- ws or fs -- you'll still loosing a portion of the movie. But I perfer ws because I'm use to it.

What happens if I play a Widescreen DVD on a normal Tv?
Does the DVD picture fit itself onto my TV to look widescreen?

Or do I lose the top and bottom of the picture?

I buy Widescreen as much as I can. If I can only find Fullscreen I buy it, but I prefer Widescreen.

Widescreen is the way to go.

If I come home with a fullscreen movie, I feel cheated.

If you have widescreen it fits it to the screen, last time I heard it doesn't cut anything off, top bottom left right.

I like Full Screen format better.
I don't like looking at two black bars while I am watching a movie

In the cinema it's much bigger though. You don't notice because the whole room is black anyway.

When I had a small TV a widescreen didn't fit the screen it was just widescreen in the middle so it was tiny. That was annoying. But now I have a widescreen TV, and whenever I watch a DVD which is widescreen it obviously comes out widescreen, but you can change it and it makes the lines smaller, but it doesn't cut the picture off, so I prefer that because the black bars are too big on widescreen.

Widescreen is better for movies and stuff.

My aspect ratio on my 65' mitsubishi cuts the bottom and top of the screen off on normal television....sad

but it's better than black bars on the side.

Not to mention I also have to explain to they're geriatric asses what the difference is between the two of them.

Full screen should not be even made anymore.

It doesnt really matter for me, because the widescreen provdes a better picture quality with less picture, but the full screen gives you full screen with less quality.

It doesn't matter for me, as long as I am seeing the movie, its alright. rolling on floor laughing

I"m not sure about the Shining, but a lot of other old movies don't lose anything in WS because they use the original which was widescreen in theaters. I won't buy a movie if it is full screen. sick

Widescreen, because its easier for the publishers, aswell.

You LOSE so much of the picture with Fullscreen, so publishers had to edit the picture a lot. There's quite a lot that goes into making a fullscreen presentation out of a widescreen print. Take a simple conversation between two people. Both are on screen in widescreen, but in Fullscreen the characters wont fit, meaning the publisher has to add a panning effect, moving the fullscreen view across the widescreen picture, in order for us to see both characters. Another example of such editting is in Star Wars. There are many cuts of the films that were ruined because the picture needed to be heavily editted (like when C3PO exclaims about the aliens attacking the Millenium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back - the original shot had Leia in the foreground, 3PO in the background, giving his lines as Leia looked on with worry. The Fullscreen edit required Leia to be removed and the result was a blurred, out of focus C3PO, it totally ruined what the cut was trying to achieve).

Movies shouldn't really be chopped up like that. A lot of films use widescreen for a reason - its better.

Fullscreen is only acceptable if it was shot in fullscreen.

The sooner it becomes the standard (and it looks that way nowadays, most TV shows are picking it up now, like The Office) the better.
