Great Movie but One Widescreen One Full Screen?

"I received my Bourne Supremacy/Bourne Identity value pack a few days ago. Went ahead and watched identity, wonderful movie. Then I went to open the supremacy and was shocked to find it was FULL SCREEN. The product details of the value pack says WIDE SCREEN. The Bourne Identity is wide screen which is what I wanted. I know there are a lot of people out there including me who won't watch anything but widescreen. The fact that they have the two mixed boggles my mind. Some like FULL some like WIDE, this mix isn't good for anyone. I just contacted Amazon and am waiting on their reply. I know Amazon normally has great customer service so I'm expecting they'll pay for me to ship the full screen version back and send me the wide screen version of supremacy. I'll change this post and my rating as soon as I find out what they plan on doing. So beware to anyone purchasing this item.
Amazon sent me new copies of the movie I just received today! They also paid for me to ship back the wrong copy. They took care of this problem immediately and didn't give me any trouble. Truly excellent customer service."
Rivetting and original yet again

"This is one of the best sequels I have ever seen: not only does it avoid degenerating into a formula - with one of the principal characters killed off at the beginning - but it adds to the characters of all the players. Bourne is still evolving in Damon's hands, becoming a new person from the confused automaton that he was in the first film, someone you can believe in and allow to enter your imagination. Of course, there are great action scenes, filmed in a you-are-there jiggle, that reach new heights of realism. (Interestingly, the director refused to use any computer animation, as he knew the audience would recognise it as such.)
But it is Damon who truly impresses: he adds creative twists to his characters like only a truly great actor can, carrying an entire environment with him, a consciousness that the viewer can envision and empathise with. I would say he is this generation's Gene Hackman, a star who rises not on simple sex appeal but on outstanding acting talent. I will watch any film he is in.
Warmly recommended. Let's hope they stop here, while the quality is maintained."
Jason Bourne Rocks

"I am very much a fan of this genre' of story (film, book whatever). I think that the "spy thriller" is the most entertaining amusement. I grew up in the early cold war era and much of this was in the news from time to time. The Bourne series has been a DELIGHT , I really like the casting,the direction and the acting. Sometimes it is a little predictable but not so much as to distract. If you like this stuff be careful the rest of the genre' will seem pedestrian for a while after this."
Who am I??

"Matt Damon is marvelous at rogue agent Jason Bourne: fluent in several language, martial arts expert, holder of multiple passports, a Swiss bank account, and high intelligence. Both movies were great except that Marie was murdered in the sequel. Ludlum's Bourne really does come alive in Damon. From Asia, to Berlin, Moscow, Paris, New York, this is way better than James Bond!"
