You’re Missing the Best Aspect of Movie Watching

Is it the potentially bad cinematography of a movie that turns you away? Maybe it’s the bad acting that keeps you from watching a movie. Well here’s a new deal breaker for a quality movie watching experience; aspect ratio.

Youtuber, Patrick Willems brings to light how distributing companies have ruined movie watching experiences by selling movies in a 4:3 aspect ratio (fullscreen rather than widescreen). He also notes how HBO’s streaming service is doing this as well.

Willems makes some great points about why this should be a bigger issue for the viewers. When distributors and streaming services change the aspect ratio from a wider one to a more narrow one, you lose much of what’s happening on screen.

Take some filmmaking advice, and be sure to watch your next movie in its full and glorious aspect ratio to which the director intended.

“Tons of people are watching these damaged, incomplete versions of movies, and not realizing it.” – Patrick Willems
