"But what about those black bars?"

Ack. This pisses me off. Warner's releasing a special edition of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory tomorrow. Because they feel this is a family title, they're releasing it full frame. I guess it's actually open matte, meaning you won't lose any picture, but you'll gain some on the top and bottom, screwing up the framing that was intended. A lot of people wrote in about this. So now Warner's releasing a widescreen edition on November 13th, the day before my birthday. That's all great and happy. The only problem is... it's now too late to cancel my pre-order of the edition coming out tomorrow. Argh! I guess that's one of the problems with pre-ordering... Oh well...
