You're right for 2D. But the Starz 3D version is OAR, fortunately.

Everything else is still cropped. My guess is that, since Sony has started up their own movie HD channel, they are sending Starz OAR editions of their films, since that is how they are or will be shown on the Sony HD channel.

Not so fast.

Sony HD has been showing Real Genius with the credit sequences in the OAR of 2.35:1 then they zoom to 16:9 for the balance of the movie until the end credits where they jump back to 2.35:1.

Yes, I've since seen that the Sony HD channel does have most of the widescreen movies cropped. Just another HD channel that I will now never watch. I was referring to Starz but, as someone noted, Spider-Man 2D is cropped, so I guess the other films I mentioned got snuck in before Starz programming noticed.

The common knowledge is that Showtime & TMC generally show things in OAR (though there are occasional exceptions).

Yep...Showtime and TMC (along with HDNet Movies) are the only channels that consistently present films in OAR.

MGM is always OAR, whether on MGM-HD or Epix. Not surprising, as they were one of the strongest supporters of laserdisc (under George Feltenstein). MGM has always shown respect to their titles. A shame the same can't be said of Warners, which now holds the rights to many MGM titles.

I recall seeing friends with benefits in oar on starz. Now on encore its cropped. I wish showtime and its sister channels bought rights to the sony pictures library after the sony starz deal expires so that its oar. But that wont happen.

There were a couple Sony titles that appeared OAR on Starz...COLUMBIANA and ZOOKEEPER were two. I had hoped it was the start of a new policy. But all subsequent Sony titles have since been cropped, including SPIDER-MAN, altho it is OAR on the Starz 3D option), so I assume those films just slipped past Starz. Once they noticed, it was back to cropping..Bastards.

It is comforting to know of so many supporting OAR.
How this thread has changed since it began.
The cynic in me says that we will continue to be disappointed in seeing films shown in incorrect AR.
Even a trusted source of enjoyment like TCM, sometimes shows a film in 1:33, when it was shot widescreen, but was told the only reason for it to happen is because it was the only source available or provided to them.
The history of AR is facinating ....as is how the various widescreen formats came to be.
Black bars are not an issue for me....I want to see films as shot by the director and cinematographer.
I always sought out the widescreen versions of VHS tapes, then came dvd and bluray, and my rule has not changed: OAR or bust.
There is great debate over OAR of several films:
On the Waterfront, Shane, and Curse of Frankenstein...just to name a few, and how they are being presented on dvd and bluray.

Verizon users sure are disappointed...FIOS crops even the new OnDemand Pay-Per-View movies.

We also have instances in which films are 'zoomed in' to fill the 16x9 image..not good either.

Movie watching is so much fun.....who knew?

Dial M for Murder is showing at Movie Tavern in 3D...may need to check it out.

I don't remember, and I never watch HBO movies because of it. I'm betting Steven Soderbergh, might have stepped up and said if you're going to play it, play it right.

Must be an HBO AFD error because the movie is full screen SD on HBO west SD and OAR letterboxed on HBO Latino West SD.

Rambo II (1985) is OAR on Outer Max HD and OAR letterboxed on Outer Max SD.

Probably Soderburgh's (sic) doing. He literally had to force HBO (and get others involved) to get OCEANS 13 shown properly. Perhaps he did the same here...or HBO didn't want to go through it again. Oh, how I wish it were a policy change.

Dark knight rises looks like a cropped version with imax scenes intact as seen in trailers for the pay tv premiere on hbo this weekend. Glad I own the bluray.
