HELP! Need list of all non-anamorphic Criterion dvds?

If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it. I'm trying to compile a list of all of Criterion's dvds that are widescreen, yet non-anamorphic.
I do understand that several of their dvds are made in the 1.33:1 aspect ratio and then matted for theatrical view... and then the matted version is presented on the dvd. Then in other cases, the movie is 1.33:1 again and since it is the oar, that is the way it is presented there.
Again I am looking for all the widescreen Criterion dvds that are NON-anamorphic.
If there is some reason why you believe that I should own or keep any of the non-anamorphics then please say so as well.
Thanks

Well, if you like and enjoy a film, that's what matters--regardless of whether it's anamorphic or not.

Well, that's certainly a good notion in theory. However, between lay-offs, injuring my back at work, sick-leave etc... through the last six months, money is EXTREMELY tight right now for me. I have to sell off parts of my collection to make ends meet, and one of the best filters I could come up with is to weed out most of the non-anamorphic titles that I feel I can part with.

inri222, is that a complete list?... or are those just the ones that you own? I'm looking at the back of my unopened (don't want to open if I don't have too) Charade and it mentions nothing re: anamorphic or enhancement. Is Charade anamorphic?

Btw, for those who are wondering, I wanted the compete list so to try and avoid obtaining any more unnecessary non-anamophics in the future.

SMART-ASS, if you are selling Armageddon, Robocop, or The Killer assuming you own them, I would be glad to buy them from you.

This one still bugs me whenever i look at it, let alone watch it...it's a 39.95 list with a commentary but they couldn't make it anamorphic? I realize it's one of the last to do so, but most others that preceded it following the 50s were anamorphic so it just makes no sense.... grrrr
