Video Suggestions:
 
Well, the list of owned movies is now getting so long it's beginning to be embarrassing. OK, it really is embarrassing. But if you should decide that you'd like to add to it -- always look for 'Anamorphic Widescreen' or 'Enhanced for 16x9 TVs', on the back of the package.
 
BTW, we do not have a DTS decoder for our system but we do have five channel (+subwoofer) Dolby Digital.
 
(I do stop buying DVDs for the last two months of the year, and there are always a few 'import'-type movies in my Amazon Wish List... Otherwise good bets: Old 007 movies, Mulholland Falls, Glengary Glen Ross, etc.)
