amazon.com is selling their widescreens for less than foolscreens, and DVD empire are selling theirs at the same price. Man they must have seen you coming and 'painted a target'(U.S. Air Force for locking a target) on you.
Foolscreen should cost more than widescreen. It's cheaper to produce widescreen than it does to produce foolscreen. They gotta pay this one bum to sit at the pan and scan machine and reformat that movie to 4x3 so the Joe 6 Packs will be happy.
Should, is right, but since more people have 4X3 sets, they will make more money by producing 4X3 DVD's offsetting fairly minor P&S production costs. So, companies will probably charge more for anamorphic transfers, until many more people are upgraded to widescreen TV's. What is really needed is a technique for taking 4X3 and filling 16 X 9 sets without distorting the picture, then the 4X3 owners would "get" widescreen.
