Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Santa Clause: 3 Movie Collection (DVD)
Why can't Amazon more clearly indicate which DVD's are in Full Screen (i.e. pan-and-scan) - I had searched for "The Santa Clause widescreen" and this was the 3rd product from the top of the list, so I just bought it. The old 4:3 format TV's are nearly impossible to find on their site, why would they assume that people want to buy movies in 4:3? With many movies, they indicate widescreen or fullscreen in the product title, making it easy to see at a glance which is which.
It's not even clearly indicated on the box itself - the only place it was indicated was on the spine of one of the 3 movies, but that label was obscured by a sticker!
The recipient of the movies opened one of the DVD's and played it before I even realized that they were full screen, otherwise I'd return the set.
I rarely give 1 star reviews, but I'm very dissapointed in this purchase. I realize that many people enjoy and even prefer full-screen movies, but I'm not one of them.
