OPEN MATTE - Master List
#1
LIST OF OPEN MATTE AND VARIABLE ASPECT RATIO MOVIES

Updated 2018-01-24 - 3092 entries!

At the moment, there are almost more than 3000 entries, and, even leaving only titles and few data, the list will still be cut in a quarter, maybe, if posted here, due to space constrain; so, I've decided to not post titles here anymore, but leave them all in the master list:

Hope you would appreciate all the hard work behind compiling and maintaining the list updated; as usual, additions and corrections are welcome.

Have fun!

Now there are few Pan&Scan titles listed; should I remove them, or leave them so someone would know the avalable full screen is not open matte? That's not a bad idea, but if I should add every P&S released movie, even on VHS, the list will end to contain more than ten thousand titles...

Maybe a seperate List for Pan & Scan on DVD, so someone looking for a 1.33:1 DVD, thinking it is open matted, he can check, if it indeed p&s.
I won't have bought the Escape from New York, Red Dawn and Rambo's if I would have known that they are not open matted.

If you only list the open matted, and the list is indeed incomplete, someone might think a release on DVD could be open matted.

If someone would provide a consistent list of P&S releases (DVD, VHS, LD) I would start another thread with it!

I agree with you; I made this list as reference; hoping it will grow during the next months!

With the "code" tag, you could start the p&s warning list in this thread, and split it, as soon as the p&s list grows to a certain length.

Strange... I thought you had corrected the Terminator entries... But now with Jacky Brown and the others inserted the Terminator entries are incorrect/uncompleted again.
