    why do people hate the black bars in widescreen when watching blu-ray movies?

    showtime cuts out the black bars making movies look bad

    Personally, I want the original aspect ratio. But on plasma sets, as well as old fashioned cathode-ray tubes, prolonged letterboxing, either vertical or horizontal, over rtime can lead to uneaven burn-in, ultimately leaving the blackened out areas of the screen producing brighter parts of the image in those portions where the blackened bars used to be.

    I don't hate them unless it's a smaller TV...

    Movies shot in cinema widescreen have a 21:9 aspect ratio, not 16:9. The movies that make use of all 1920x1080 pixels of an HD set are 16:9.

    The 21:9 movies have large black bars on the top and bottom.
    The 16:9 movies have very little, if any at all, black bars.

    When you trim 21:9 movies to fill up a 16:9 screen you're cutting out a LOT of the actual picture.
