I don't understand why alot of people get annoyed at the black bars on the tv screen. Even my mom can't stand them. Don't they realize the letter box format is how the movies were shown in theaters and how much stuff gets cutt off when they crop it to it thescreen? It's funny how one little thing such as "Black Lines" seems to ruin a whole wonderful visualizing movie to some people.
I don't have a widescreen tv but the black lines don't bother me one bit.
I prefer letterboxed DVD's.....if people would just realize how much they gotta BUTCHER the movie to make it 'full screen' maybe they would change their minds.
The black bars don't take anything away...if anything, they give you MORE.
Now, if all the companies making DVD's would just grasp the concept of putting any subtitles in the space occupied by the black bars, life would be perfect
