After having upgraded my display to 106" 16:9 FP, I noticed most of my favorite movies are having black bars (well like my 29" SD TV). I couldn't imagine so many of the good movies are 2.35:1. Yet all pixar and some movies are 16:9 enhanced and will fit fine to the screen. But SD TV from the other side will have side bars.
When stretching to 16:9 with a 29" display was acceptable, it is not even thinkable with a 106" display:raped:!!
It is sad that with a 16:9 display we are still having bars, and Masking systems are not an option for me.
Why so many formats? How can people calculate the required screen size when the format is not fixed? Moreover the beautiful look of a flat pannel or "tableau" goes when there are bars.
Are some movies sold as differnent versions: anamorphic and 16:9 or 1.85:1? So that one can chose the most suitable format for his display?
Why doesn't the industry have a fixed standard format?


I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
