4:3 Pan & Scan? Seriously?

What year is this? I can't believe this is being sold in “full screen” format. I spent 10 minutes double-checking my Apple TV settings because I was sure this was a mistake. Apple should show a prominent warning when movies are being sold in P&S mode. RIDICULOUS!

Don't buy: Pan and Scan...

Great movie but why not widescreen? Ruins the whole experience.

Fullscreen 4:3 format - not widescreen

Why are all of my other movie purchases in HD 16:9 widescreen but this one isn't? I bought my copy using my Apple TV, expecting the same quality, but I wish I had seen these reviews on iTunes beforehand.

This is ridiculous. Don't waste your money.
