It's Switching/Shifting Aspect Ratios, aka SARs, that heightens and lowers picture heights in a presentation process in a big-eye-popping inconsistent run.
Not Changing, aka CARs, where one is opened to accept a original theatrical screened film to be cropped, either on left and right or top or bottom to heighten the “sense” of the film to what the original film to be related to the genre.
using back the homevideo release of TOPGUN way back to laserdisc time. the one and only release i encountered and owned till today was the “Remastered Edition” of the movie with DD5.1 and surprisingly... WS1.90:1 “IMAX-ish” Aspect Ratio! ...although the DVD release some years later trim it further to the “correct” WS2.35:1 and brought over to Bluray...
No idea what this has to do with what I said.
You seem to believe a large number of people dislike - and even get sick from - the AR variations in "Maverick" and other movies, whereas there's no evidence of this.
YOU dislike it - and you're not alone, but you throw out mass generalizations and seem unwilling/unable to accept that plenty of people are fine and dandy with this presentation.
Like I said, if people hated this, the movie wouldn't still occupy IMAX screens 3+ months after its release.
