I loved it when stations sometimes showed a widescreen movie in widescreen. Basically 70% of the screen was black. lol This is back when we had nothing but 4:3 tvs

I prefer the black lines. If I watch media from my computer I will display it letter boxed if it doesn't screw the pooch on being displayed (look) properly.

They sell this where I work. 21:9 Aspect ratio TV




Then you have black side bars. Until we get adjustable screens (Hmmmmm) we are stuck with bars without compromise of PQ.

If all films from now on were shot in the 1:78 aspect ratio, it would ruin movies for me. I especially loathe it when movie channels crop a 2:35 AR to a 1:85/1:78.

Thanks for letting us know by resurrecting an ancient thread which was based on a false assumption. Since DVD pan&scan has mostly become a thing of the past and more films get shoot in 2.35:1 now because film makers don't have to frame with home video and a 4:3 framing in mind.
