Here's a list of movies where the fullscreen version contains more nudity:
Abyss, The (confirmed: additional shot of Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio's breast in the resuscitation scene.. only amounts to one additional shot as the OAR has two breast shots with the full frame having three.)
Bonnie and Clyde (confirmed: Faye Dunaway's breast visible in the scene at the window in fullscreen version.)
Bully (confirmed: full screen unrated version contains a shot of male nudity, full frontal, from Nick Stahl, viewable via a mirror, and possible, unconfirmed, additonal brief female nudity.)
Carrie (confirmed: Sissy Spacek's full frontal nudity in shower scene, only topless and butt in OAR. Additonal info here.. sounds like one would need to find the CBS/Fox VHS and not the later MGM/UA which was reframed to remove the full frontal shots.)
Cat People (unconfirmed: possible extended views of Nastassja Kinski in fullscreen version (butt?).
Cheerleaders, The (confirmed: a few full frontal shots are matted out from the OAR The Cheerleaders Collection dvd but are present in the full frame VHS.)
Embrace of the Vampire (confirmed: extends to show Alyssa Milano's butt in first scene and an extra topless scene(s) later on. Both versions on current release though the unrated version is widescreen and the R rated version is full frame so it may or may not contain the aforementioned butt/topless shots on that fullscreen version.)
Fraternity Vacation (confirmed: "B-Queens Barbara Crampton and Kathleen Kinmont both had brief full frontal nudity in the fullscreen version of this movie, but the widescreen cropped the scene so that only breasts were visible."
Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (unconfirmed: as posted by Julie Walker.. "may suffer from overmatting cutting off much of the nudity durring a key sex sequence in the woods". This would likely be full frontal nudity of Deborah Voorhees. Currently available on dvd in widescreen only.)
Ghost Story (confirmed: full frontal nudity of Alice Krige in open matte fullscreen version that is covered by the matte in the OAR version.
Hitcher in the Dark AKA Hitcher 2 (confirmed: current R1 dvd release is 1:85 (can't find confirmation on whether this is its correct OAR or if it was shot 4:3 and matted for the dvd release.. DVDAf classifies it as "Incorrectly Framed Transfer") which omits some nudity that was/is present in full frame versions (Midnight Video info).
Jackie Brown (confirmed: open matte version shows Bridget Fonda's butt at about the 1:10 mark. Currently available in OAR only.)
Kalifornia (confirmed: In the FF version, Michelle Forbes shows a very brief flash of her bush during a sex scene with David Duchovney. In both the widescreen and fullscreen, there is a fleeting glimpse of a tuft of her pubic hair seen in silhouette. A second later, she shifts her legs, and in the fullscreen version her bush is visible in light for a couple of frames.
Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (confirmed: In the scene late in the movie where Indira Varma goes down on her knees in front of Sarita Choudhury and kisses her thigh, you get more breasts)
Killing Me Softly (unconfirmed: ? Unrated version contains both fullscreen and widescreen on dvd.)
Mischief (confirmed: extended footage from the waist down, full frontal, in the open matte version of Kelly Preston.. OAR and fullscreen. Not available on dvd yet.)
National Lampoon's Vacation (confirmed: as posted by MJKTool.. "There are basically three boob scenes here. The first is when the Psyco music starts and she (ed. note Beverly D'Angelo) is washing herself in the shower. In the fullscreen version the frame cuts off right beneath both her tits. In the widescreen it crops off on top of her tits so you dont see them. The second scene is when Clark opens up the curtains startling her. In both the widescreen & fullscreen versions you see both breasts fully bouncing up and down. In the fullscreen you seer her panties...widescreen you dont. The third and final scene is when she says "Claaark". In the fullscreen version the frame cuts off right beneath the nipple. The widescreen crops the tits out completely." Both versions are available on dvd seperately (full frame has been discontinued but is still currently available.)
Poison Ivy: New Seduction (confirmed: extended topless shots of Jamie Pressly not seen in OAR version..
Pump Up the Volume (confirmed: open matte version contains footage that extends to approximately Samantha Mathis's navel compared to the OAR version that barely shows her entire breast..
Ready To Wear (PrÃªt-Ã*-Porter) (confirmed: The film ends with a nude fashion show. The first model, a blonde with long straight hair is shown fully nude in both versions. However, the fullscreen version gives a closer view of her bush. The second model, a brunette with short hair ), barely shows her bush at all (side shot) and from a great distance in the WS version, but a nice close view is afforded in the FS version.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil (confirmed: Joan Severance's breasts in hotel shower scene at roughly the 1:08-1:12 mark.)
Showgirls (confirmed: The NC-17 full screen version contains an extra Elizabeth Berkley bush shot from a distance during the pole dance scene that is covered by the matte in the OAR version)
Single White Female (confirmed: Jennifer Jason Leigh's full frontal nudity in shower scene, and another.. only topless in OAR. )
Some Girls (confirmed: Patrick Dempsey full frontal nudity probable in fullscreen version that is matted out in OAR version.
Supernova (confirmed: extended Robin Tunney topless footage. Both versions on current release.)
Wings of the Dove, The (confirmed: as posted by Buck Turgidson, "Helena Bonham Carter's fully exposed breasts are clearly visible at the bottom of the frame when she sits on the bed in profile, after she first undresses, in the 4:3 version."
World Is Not Enough, The (confirmed: Sophie Marceau nip slip in fullscreen version)

When you look at the number of movies that are listed above versus the number of oar dvds that have been released, the errors are few and far between. The studios tend to get oar right the majority of the time so I can live with a few missteps here and there. Now, if that list was longer, then me might have something to be pissed about.

i always thought Oar showed more than fullscreen. This sucks, like somebody else stated, i wish i never seen that
|The nudity isn't the point as much as the zoom/crop of 2.35:1 - or more to the point - a 4:3 format that not only has more vertical info but also more horizontal info.|

I can't imagine that the Fullscreen version has more footage per frame than the theatrical release - the true OAR.

|I seem to recall reading on this site that James Cameron actually prefers the fullscreen version of T2 to the OAR!|

The T3 widescreen DVD transfer is strange. There's a huge thread about it over at the Home Theater Forum for those curious about it.
|If the widescreen 2.35:1 DVD is much more zoomed than the 2.35:1 theatrical release - I'd love to know what jackass took it upon himself to "reshoot" the movie through his own editing.|

I want to watch a movie the way it was made. I don't buy DVD's because of 'goodies'.
