Back from a Christmas Holiday with the family, my attention is drawn by my brother to this highly amusing and disconcertingly accurate satire on DVD aspect ratios in The Onion.
Worse, in my view, than ‘full screen’ renditions of widescreen movies are non-anamorphic widescreen versions. The former at least has some element of providing what some people want (those with 4:3 TVs who can’t come to terms with top and bottom black bars). The latter is sheer laziness.
UPDATE (Thursday, 8 January 2004, 1:36 pm): Damn, the Onion link is now dead. It was funny while it lasted.
UPDATE (Monday, 8 March 2010, 12:23 pm): Found the article. Link fixed.
