Grand Budapest Hotel is an interesting curiosity, but it really shouldn't be part of this argument. The letterbox and pillarbox bars in that movie are part of the design aesthetic of the film, and it...

Scope was a gimmick to to help movie theaters compete with TV. This is true.

You know what else is a gimmick to help movie theaters compete with TV? IMAX.

The difference between us is that, with an 11 foot wide scope screen, I wouldn't beg for pity that the 16:9 portion in the center was just way to small to watch TV on. How very sad that episodes of...

If you're a big-time gamer and it's very important to you that video games be as immersive as possible, then sure, a 16:9 screen makes the most sense. Not all of us care about video games, however....

I have that in my mind because that's what people do. The number of people who buy a 16:9 screen and then only project into a small portion of the center of it is infinitesimal. It's basically just...

The bird sounds that way in my room too, but my Surround Back speakers are elevated a little to clear my chair backs and I just assumed that was the reason.
