New Resources for Widescreen Information!

I recently discovered that several of the links on our what is widescreen page no longer work. I have replaced the dead links with some new resources. Added are Hong Kong Fanatics Intro to Widescreen, Why Widescreen? @ DVDAnswers.com and the Widescreen Information Page at twowiresthin.com

The pages removed include the Atombrain Guide to Letterboxing, and Richard Sliwa’s Harry Potter DVD comparison pages.

List of Columbia Full Screen Re-issues Updated

I have updated this list of full screen only re-issues of DVDs that Columbia/Tri-Star has previously released in both widescreen and full screen formats. More of these titles continue to be released, and as I find out about them, I will post them. This list will also be linked to from the OAR Watchdog from now on.
