This Version is GARBAGE!, Oct. 17 2003
I just got my copy of the SE version of Christmas Vacation.
I've been waiting and watching for it to come out in widescreen
format for years. Finally it arrives! But wait, what's this??
It's a "Matted Widescreen". What's a "Matted" Widescreen?
Why that's the pan-and-scan version with the top and bottoms
cut off. So instead of losing 30% of the movie's scenes watching
the pan-and-scan version, you can now lose more than 50% of
the movie!! To top it off, I also purchased "A Christmas Story -
20th Anniversary" edition to find out Warner Brothers did the
same thing to it. I'm sending both back!! Shame on you Warner
