I think it's alright for the consumer to sell one of the discs to another consumer. That's legal I'm sure. It's Illegal to copy anyhing on the disc and sell it, thats all.

waskydiver... I thought it's illegal for a store to distribute them like that, but DJTOELL makes a good point. Unless they have a contract, I suppose it's alright.

Speaking of full-screen. I'm sick and tired of studios releasing WS and FS versions of their movies. I wanted to puke when I heard 8 Mile was relasing 4 DIFFERENT DVD's! They should just package them together, or just WS if you ask me. I love the double-sided discs because that way everyone's happy. I dont see why people would want Full-screen though. I know sometimes it's nice, if you have a small tv or whatever, but people like that should do their research about WS. Soon, everything will be in widescreen, even tv.

Here is what you do I have several sony CX-875P 300 + 1 Progressive Scan that I *lock* in full, including my HDTV in full and the discs doesn't show any fat faces.

There are myriad amounts of cheap companies that won't do OAR like "Jade" 1995, so I lock in full and have a non stretched P & S but it fills the entire 16 X 9 screen top to bottom and sides.

There are workarounds and I am forever looking for them.
I'm sorry, no english lessons for you, but ... what?

I mean just the disks, nothing else. I think I have a few titles that came with 2 separate DVDs, WS on one side, and FS on the other. God knows I'll never touch the FS one. Has anyone tried selling JUST the FS reservior dogs or Terminator 2 DVDs (those are the 2 most popular ones that did it, I believe)?

Hopefully the trend of separating disks will continue. I'm only 21 and already I need a magnifying glass on those 2 sided DVDs.

Dude, don't give up the Reservior Dogs full screen, that disc has all the good extras like the Reservior Dolls sequence and the Eddie Bunker and Lawrence Tierney tributes. If you say you don't need those, then why even buy the special edition when they already had a barebones out there?

Yes, Artisan unfortunately splits the extras between the WS and FS discs.

Don't miss out on the goodies!
