Don't some people insist that the fullscreen Full Metal Jacket is Kubrick's preferred version?

I know there's that debate with The Shining. If FMJ is one of the movies in that category it would be matted, which means that wide screen version does crop what was originally shot on the top and bottom of the film, rather than the full screen version cropping the sides. Just because a movie is matted doesn't meant that it's supposed to be full screen though. Alot of 90s vhs had boom mikes popping into scenes (although I don't know examples off the top of my head) because they were the full screen versions of movies that were supposed to be matted.
