Visually, the movie is offered in either a full screen or non-anamorphic widescreen version.
I bought it for the widescreen capability, so I could watch big wide movies as they were meant to be seen.
Its high-resolution 17-inch widescreen display is perfect for movies, music, games, and editing your own digital photography.
Indoors there is, or was, a fabulous curved screen perfect for widescreen epics.
With the advent of excellent home surround sound systems and bigger widescreen TVs, the experience of viewing a movie at home is becoming closer than ever to that of seeing it in a theater.
The introduction of every new DVD and widescreen television eats into our living space, adds another bulky remote console and takes another series of wires across our rooms.
Another thing is that 1280x1024 is a terrible resolution choice for a widescreen movie.
Sony's latest camcorder applies the same benefits to creating home movies, allowing you to record and play back widescreen digital video on miniature DVD-R and DVD-RW discs.
Unless your TV is small enough to pick up with one hand, widescreen movies shouldn't be a problem.
I am glad to get this movie in a widescreen edition: any type of pan and scan would not have done the visuals justice.
