    yet i'm still flummoxed (and bamboozled too).

    so what? its basically a way to gain back disk space from those widescreen black bars? thats it?

    Basically, an animoprphic transfer will allow the movie to fill the screen on a widescreen TV. A non animoprhic DVD will not stretch to fill out the widescreen set, and will leave bars on all sides of the movie.

    If you have or plan on getting a Widescreen HD TV, then Anamorphic DVD's are your best friend. If you have a standard tube TV, and don't plan on upgrading anytime soon, then it really doesn't make much of a difference.
