Re: Blu Rays Aspect Ratio Question

I have to admit I find the idea that people actually want to lose part of the image that was intended to be shown kind of mind-boggling, especially if the reason boils down to "I want an image that fills my screen".

Black bars bother you? Turn off the lights. Imagine you're in a movie theater.

Even when I had a 27" 4:3 tv (and a 15" monitor) I still wanted letterboxed movies when possible. I knew sooner or later I'd have a bigger tv, and I don't think anyone thinks we'll be going back to 4:3 at some point.
