Charly To Be Released in 16×9 Widescreen!
Fri, December 31, 2004

I am now convinced that Charly was delayed so that MGM could prepare a widescreen transfer. DVD Planet and Best Buy both confirm that Charly will be released in Anamorphic Widescreen on March 8th, 2005. Count this as another victory for OAR fans. I would like to thank Christopher Bligh for bringing this matter to the attention to the people who made this happen.

Universal Makes A Colossal Mistake!
Sun, December 26, 2004

I was just alerted that Universal Home Video released Colossus: The Forbidden Project in Fullscreen only just last month! With their upcoming release of Iceman this Tuesday, also in Fullscreen only, it seems that Universal is forsaking quality and ignoring a large segment of the market. Do they really think that people shopping at Wal-Mart looking for Fullscreen DVDs will pick up a film like Colossus or Iceman? If this trend continues, then I would say that Universal will soon become just as bad as Columbia.

Universal Freezes Out Iceman Fans!
Mon, December 20, 2004

I was just notified that Universal Home Video is releasing Iceman on December 28th. Amazon claims it is to be released in Full Screen only. This is just a mere week away, so it’s doubtful that any studio feedback would be effective in getting a re-release. However, I would still encourage those who favor OAR vote with their wallet to send the studio a message that hopefully will be applied to other films. NO OAR = NO SALE!

Look Who’s Talking Films Will Be Re-released
Fri, December 10, 2004

I’ve just learned from Sony’s Upcoming DVD site that they are re-releasing the 3 Look Who’s Talking films as a boxset on Febuary 1st. The first two films are already available on DVD in Widescreen, but the third film was released in Pan & Scan. Hopefully, this release will not just be a repackaging, but new editions with a widescreen transfer for the final film. Sony has not released any details yet. I will post an update when more information is known.

Server Errors Fixed
Tue, December 7, 2004

You may have gotten some internal server errors, or timeouts when trying to access certain pages on the site earlier this week. I recently upgraded my personal site, and I had to change some server settings to make parts of it work. Well some of these changes caused some unforeseen errors with Widescreen Advocate. I have now been able to correct all of the errors. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

My sales tracker script has been reporting a lot of errors lately, but every time I load the page, it displays correctly. I cannot check the page every time the script runs, so if you come across any errors on the page, please send me an e-mail so I can diagnose it. Thank you.
