Has anyone found a source for finding scope blu-rays?

It's a shame how many good films are being released in 16:9 (The Avengers) and then some of the extras in on the Blu-ray are scope. dumb.

Anyway... I wondered if there was a source for trying to find/buy blu-ray titles that are 2.35:1 thru 2.40:1 formats.

Thanks

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do, see movies the way they were meant to be seen

It was odd that AVENGERS was 1.85:1 when all the lead up films (IRON MAN, INCREDIBLE HULK, THOR) were all Scope and THOR was 3D, so I don't swallow the James Cameron thing of the need for more height in 3D that he did with AVATAR and TITANIC 3D.

I believe Whedon said something about wanting more vertical space in the frame to emphasize the height of the buildings in the city, or something like. I don't necessarily buy it either, though.
