I think you're mistaking enhanced widescreen with "dicked around".

Enhanced Widescreen means that the film was transferred into a format that'll fit in a widescreen display natively, but which gets slightly scaled down for display on a standard television. It does not mean it'll have any bonus features, or special effects, or anything.

The way these DVDs are... they're WASTING disc space just so they can encode the fucking black bars on top and bottom of the picture. Instead of encoding a better and larger picture, they encoded a smaller version with the bars. There's hundreds of movies from the same era that have Anamorphic Widescreen versions. So why the fuck didn't they do it to these movies?

Kitsune's explanation was excellent, but here's a more comprehensive look at what anamorphic DVDs are all about:

Word up. And seriuosly, Star Wars wasn't even that great. I never really understood why it developed such a crazy following. <img src=smilies/mystery.gif>

Uh, I know what anamorphic widescreen is. I guess it's just that I don't have any problem with the remastered versions of the films aside from the "Greedo shoots first" bullshit. The rest of the edits were just continuity fixes anyway.

So you're saying that these films don't deserve an anamorphic transfer because they're the original, older versions?

hahaha bitch all you want. I'm sure you'll run to the store at midnight to buy the trilogies and individual discs all over again when they come out on blu-ray or hd-dvd or both (cause lucas ain't an asshole, but he is a genius, and for thaty he's rich.)

if you're not such a hardcore fan than I apologize, cause my old buddie buys all the video releases and shit like that. I have them all copied to dvd+r (rented of course!) take that lucas!

I was just thinking that...if they aren't anamorphic (which is annoying) maybe they just took the LaserDisc version of the film and slapped it on DVD. They should've done it proper.

Yeah, that's the only thing I find kind of strange...the editing is very odd to me on that for some reason. It just looks weird. :P I wouldn't let it ruin the movie for me though...it's not like it doesn't last all of a second.

I don't understand so much why people freak out about this even if it is a bit obnoxious. StarWars is still like 95% the same movie I knew and loved growing up.
