    With the re-release of CHILD'S PLAY, the list of classic cult films still unavailable anamorphic in Region 1 shrank a spot. Too bad there's still several dozens of major releases that haven't been brought down the 16x9 train. From the list, which non-anamorphic film are you waiting to see anamorphic most?

    I never include others on my polls, because I am an asshole, but this time I'll make an exception so we can try to make a definitive list of DVDs that are still non-anamorphic.

    Get listing, friends!

    Not horror, but here's a few other big titles still non-anamorphic:

    Armageddon
    True Lies

    Aren't there still some Universal Hitchcock still languishing in letterbox?

    The Abyss: SE (Lenticular Special Edition) I bought that came out in 2007 says Anamorphic Widescreen on the back. I hope that wasn't a misprint :(
    Voted for From Dusk Til Dawn. Needs 16:9 pronto.

    TREMORS has been reissued in Anamorphic. The R1 "Attack Pack" has all 4 TREMORS flicks in Anamorphic Widescreen.

    (TREMORS 1 and 2 were initially released individually in non-Anamorphic).

    I voted Sleepless because it still needs to be released uncut R1 as well.

    I had read reports that the first was still non-anamorphic, but I guess since there's an HD DVD floating around, they must have gotten to it at some point. I'll remove it from the list.

    Voted for The Abyss because I had NO IDEA the DVD I had was mis-labeled. Haven't watched it since I picked it up (need a nice chunk of time to devote to watching it in one sitting), and I'm pretty disappointed in hearing it isn't anamorphic. Can't even use the "auto" feature on my TV that eliminates the letterbox on non-anamorphic DVD's since the film is in 2.35:1. Lame :(

    Would have voted Sleepless, but I have the MIA R2 import.

    Yeah, I ended up picking up the R2 on that one. Good movie and not only is it in full screen on R1, it is cut to hell!

    Great to see so much love for Madman - I'd upgrade for an anamorphic transfer or a bluray disc.
