I have no objections to the choice of aspect ratio, but it seems an interesting choice. Was he trying to personalize this sequel to the 2.35:1 ALIEN in any way possible - to make it as unique a sequel as he could? For ages I thought the 1.85:1 laser had got it wrong. Maybe it's because Cameron hadn't worked with a Scope ratio before and was uncomfortable with it or didn't feel it was necessary (and didn't use it himself until TERMINATOR 2)? Anyway, just a thought.
