I hate wide screens.I don't see the point of wide screens except to get you to buy one to keep up with the crowd. Its all black bars to fill in the gaps or fat distorted stretched faces to fill the screen. Old format films are unwatchable.
Wide screens are the wrong proportions for good composition ask any artist or photographer.
Next thing is wide screen mobiles which will require very large pockets or handbags and in a year or two ....TALL SCREENS then god help us.
