Thumbs up DVD Movies

Hi everyone,

Well here's a question that came to my mind. Yesterday I went to rent a DVD movie from our local video store and I noticed that the movie I was going to rent which was "Assault on Precint 13" had the letters "WS" next to its title and the other had "FF" next to it's title. I wanted to make sure that it meant wide screen and full screen. So I went to the clerk at the desk just to make sure and he said "Yup!" I don't know why FF was chosen instead of FS but anyway... he told me that some people prefer one over the other which of course it's true because I personally like to watch movies in widescreen version. Anyway... so I thought I could have a little fun and get some answers on this one with this question... Hehe...

I selected widescreen because I find that you get to see more of the movie.

I agree. But then again, I did ask a co-worker of mine what does she prefer and she said full screen because she has a small tv. I guess it depends on the size of the tv too. Oh well...

Yah of course, the tv size does matter. I usually watch my movies on a 50 inch ( not sure, but its around there ), so its large enough for widescreen.

Both WS and FF are "full screen"
Most movies are shot in wide screen and are then "shrunk" down to 4:3. Thankfully the US is finally starting to embrace wide screen, (been around for many years in Europe).
We have a 46" WS in the lounge a 26"ws in the bedroom and I use a 32" ws in the office as a demo/setup screen for HTPC work.
