When you buy DVDs, what format do you prefer, widescreen (16x9) or fullscreen? (4x3) Personally, I prefer widescreen. When a movie is formatted to fit a regular TV screen, the sides of the picture are cut off. It's not exactly a lot, it's just annoying. I'd rather see the whole picture with black bars on top and bottom then have part of the movie cut off. Plus when you're watching a widescreen format movie in a dark room, you hardly notice the black bars.
