Just got back from a Monday-night youth Bible study group at the youth pastor's house. When I got there, the Monsters, Inc. DVD was playing on his tiny little TV, and I noticed that it was in widescreen. I didn't say anything, because I would seem like a weirdo if I said something to the effect of "Yay, widescreen!". We turned off the movie partway-through so we could begin the night's Bible study. Once it was over, we turned the movie back on. On the menu screen where you choose which aspect ratio to watch, whoever was in charge of the remote control arbitrarily chose widescreen. One of the guys on the couch said "You should have picked full screen! Widescreen sucks." Peter, the youth pastor, about 25 years old, replied, "No, in my house, you always choose widescreen." One of the other guys said, "Wha-? It doesn't even fill the screen!" I said "Who cares if it fills the screen? You're not supposed to look at the black spaces. You're supposed to look at the movie between them." If I'm not mistaken, one of the other guys chuckled and muttered "Yeah, really..." Peter called to his wife in the kitchen. "Hey, Angie," he said, "Tell them what we noticed about people who like widescreen and people who like full screen." She came out of the kitchen. "People who like widescreen are more sophisticated," she said. Then I thought about all of us here on the Home Theater Forum, and nodded in agreement. Pastor Peter and his wife had their first baby earlier this year. I expect that Peter Jr. will grow up to be "sophisticated" like us.
