Video Likes 16:9, 16:9 and more 16:9!!! Clear picture, good colour without oversaturation
Video Dislikes 4:3 version of a 16:9 image. Oversaturation, soft image

Most Eagerly Awaited DVDs Raiders of the Lost Ark

Opinions About Specific Movies and their DVDs

Titanic Like most people, I was unpleasantly surprised by the lack of 16x9 enhancment. Perhaps a Superbit version will be out?

Terminator 2
Star Wars
