Is this a problem on every DVD you watch, or just certain discs? Is the DVD supposed to be widescreen, or is it 4:3 content?

I thought the season's first episode was infuriating. "Waterton," Massachusetts? Seriously, Aaron Sorkin, did you not watch the real news at all after the bombing happened? How embarrassing.

You may have seen this movie at a theater that also has Atmos, but there is no Atmos mix for Interstellar. If you didn't see this movie in IMAX, what you heard was regular 5.1. Sorry.
