List of all Universal Studio Selections titles

I would like to know what movies have gotten a crappy treatment in this series. The few that I know of are

Iceman (Fullscreen)
Cloak and Dagger (Widescreen)
Darkman III: Die Darkman Die (Widescreen)
Colossus: The Forbin Project (Fullscreen)
the upcoming Ghostdad (Fullscreen)
Charley Varrick (Fullscreen)

I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I wouldn't say this is crappy treatment....Anamorpic OAR....yah, no extras but for under ten bucks you can't beat it...I don't really need a ton of features on eithere one of these titles....sucks on the full screen only releases though.

No problem with Cloak & Dagger which I grabbed as soon as it came out.

I skipped two other titles of moderate interest simply because they were not OAR.

So, Universal, you sold ONE dvd instead of THREE.

Here's an updated list:

Iceman (Fullscreen)
Cloak and Dagger (Widescreen)
Darkman III: Die Darkman Die (Widescreen)
Colossus: The Forbin Project (Fullscreen)
Ghostdad (Fullscreen)
Charley Varrick (Fullscreen)
D.C. Cab (Widescreen)
Paradise Alley (Fullscreen)
White Palace (Fullscreen)
Yanks (Fullscreen)
Splitting Heirs (Widescreen)
Tank (Fullscreen)
Missing (Widescreen)

The ones in fullscreen I am assuming are in fullscreen because the pics of the box covers at Amazon don't have the widescreen banner on some titles (and some titles they say are in widescreen).

You can add the Oscar winning Missing, which despite having quite a nice anamorphic transfer, has been shamefully treated, shuffled off into Universal's bargain basement range...

Can't forget "Tank", got a full screen release instead of the 1.85:1 OAR. That was a huge letdown for me, along with Ice Man, which was in the same "wave" of crappy releases.
