I'm not talking about your favorite ratio in a theater, but at home, on your television. I prefer 1.66:1, and it has nothing to do with how much of the area on my screen is taken up with image (if that was the issue, I'd obviously prefer 1.33:1). I love 2.35:1 in theaters, but for whatever reason, I find the 1.66:1 ratio on my t.v. to be the most aesthetically pleasing. I just love that SHAPE. I can remember seeing 1.66 in some theaters thirty or forty years ago or so, and I loved it then, too.
