    True. I was just remarking how awesome the imagery looks.

    Whatever this is should be in IMAX.

    Just watched Aquaman for the first time (I know, I'm late). It's safe to say that the majority of the movie was 1.78:1, leaving me perplexed as to why 2.35:1 was even in the mix at all? If they knew this would be released on IMAX screens, which are more similar in ratio to our screens at home...

    I believe they just zoomed the image, right? I applaud the effort though.

    The standard changed, and thus no content creator chooses to create in 4x3 anymore. Why can't the same argument be applied to film? I understand it's not exactly the same, as there are still 2.35 screens out there, but home video is more popular than ever, and movie attendance is going down...

    Curious though, does anyone have an issue with the fact that TV shows are no longer produced in 4x3?

    Thanks for the explanation. I think, in order to advance this discussion, it would be nice to understand what each of your opinions and thoughts were on the Black Panther example. Otherwise, I accept that I'm in the minority on this, but please don't assume that all I'm thinking about are...

    I think I understand what you are asking, but respectfully sir, I never said I was concerned with not taking advantage of the maximum pixel resolution, although I understand it's relevance. Your question did make me think of something though. Imagine you have a 2.35 screen at the theater. The...

    I hear you, but that's not where my beef is coming from. I'm bothered that the content creators are purposefully masking when they don't need to, like my Black Panther post earlier demonstrates. I have less of an issue with the black bars if the movie was shot anamorphically, because under...

    Maybe if I could get my setup like this my opinion might change, but lighting conditions would have to be perfect, and even in my pitch black room with matte paint there's still enough ambient light from the projector to nullify any pure black framing that might come from the scenario you describe.

    I'm all about ultra-wide, but unfortunately the home experience does it a disservice, which is important IMO because that's where we are watching most of our movies.

    BTW, just to clarify, if blu-ray/UHD manufacturers gave consumers the ability to project 2.35 without all the hassle, and in a way that is superior in resolution to 1.85, then my opinion might be different. For example, reviving the 'anamorphically enhanced' aspect, but for blu-ray/UHD

    Not sure if I understand what you are saying here, but allow me to clarify with visuals below what one of my main issues is. "Experience Black Panther the way it was intended." - See? They are literally selling the IMAX version as the definitive version. Using Black Panther as an example, why...

    UGH 2:1...why? All they're doing is removing image.
