I'm watching Die Hard in letter box format on channel FMC "Fox Movie Channel". They keep showing banners on the bottom half of the letterbox displaying little inside "tid bits" of the movie. Now this can't be a new idea, but I'm surprised the movie industry/television stations don't show letterboxed movies more often than showing the cropped 4:3 version, and show all those snazzy banner ads above and below the show you're watching. Don't get me wrong, I hate ads, but I have a funny feeling that's where things are headed in the future. I hate watching shows on TNT or TNN, forgot which, where they constantly show a black bar at the bottom to display what they're playing, like Star Trek TNG. Argh..
