I was wondering the same thing [fullscreen is my preference also]. You can ask used/new companies this question. I received a comment immediately to my Inbox. If I purchase dvds when they first come out, I usually have a choice...this tells me that most people prefer fullscreen. Good luck!
You want to know why people prefer widescreen? Think of it this way as an example:
1) Take a DVD Case. 2) Turn it sideways so it's a Rectangle in front of you. 3) Now take BOTH your hands and place them over the LEFT & RIGHT SIDE of the DVD case covering about 2 inches on each side.
That's what your precious Fullscreen does, it CHOPS OFF the sides of your film making you see less. So if you are happy with paying the same to see LESS of what's going on (and sometimes have an artificial panning of the screen to show you what you're missing), then keep on begging for Fullscreen Movies.
Your field of vision is widescreen, when you watch a movie in the theatres it's in widescreen and now all the new TVs/HDTVs are in Widescreen... see the pattern here?
And to answer your question, Juno is only available in Widescreen... as the Director intended you to see the movie. Widescreen is not going anywhere, but Fullscreen movies are on their way out the door. Adapt or don't watch movies anymore. Either way is fine for me because I enjoy widescreen for what it truly is instead of people complaining that is "doesn't take up the entire screen" or "it's wasting my picture with blackness".....
Hey crazysweetaaron? They already make DVDs/Blu-rays like this without having black bars... it's called BUY AN HDTV (widescreen) and it will fill it up 99% of the time...
Sassy eh? I looked at it again and it's informative... even my parents can understand what I wrote, and they are far from tech savvy.
EDIT: crazysweetaaron has edited and deleted their post which is why I replied. The generality of the post said I was "sassy" and (for lack of remembering the exact word) I was an Elitist trying to preach to others in my previous post. The point is, Widescreen is better for all and gives you what you would see in the theatre and the way the studios and directors meant for their material to be seen. This is not going away and is in fact growing. Educate yourself on the benefits instead of arguing on your thoughts on the CONS.
Well,i didn't pay 3000 Dollars for a 55" TV, that the movie's only fill up 70% of the screen either. If I wanted to watch a movie like that, I would have bought a 42" TV. I absolutely hate your precious widescreen format, because of those absurd black bars at the top and bottom of the picture. I only purchase full screen now,and I'm very happy with them.
If your "Full Screen" format is taking up the WHOLE screen on your 55" HDTV, then you are NOT watching the movie properly. It is stretched to fit your TV but leaving off MORE of the picture because you bought a 4:3 ratio format of the movie vs. a 16:9 ratio. So you're double wasting money. Buy widescreen and stretch that, at least then you're seeing more picture even if you are completely oblivious to your stupidity.
