The amount of speculation threads we can come up with for this non-existent movie have reached self parody level.
Anything that is not Widescreen. I hate Widescreen and honestly have no idea why people love it, having two black bars fill up the top and bottom of the screen drives me nuts not to mention I wan my monsters to look tall not wide.
Also, this is one of the most hilariously silly things I've ever heard said on a forum. Tell this to any filmmaker and they may as well laugh in your face. You clearly know nothing about the format and what it actually does
. There's a reason EVERYTHING is in Widescreen. There is a reason Toho made Toho-scope, and the assertion that widescreen makes the monsters look wider is hilarious, because that's completely wrong
. Anything filmed in widescreen is portrayed with a proper aspect ratio. Everything on screen is an accurate image of what was photographed, except that there's MORE of the image due to enhanced scope. Fullscreen cuts off the sides, while Widescreen adds more to each frame without losing anything. But it's an easy mistake for simpletons to make when some TV's cannot display a widescreen film in it's proper ratio without adjustments, so it's letterboxed, thus making the image look
smaller on the most superficial of levels(Anamorphic Widescreen, I believe?). Widescreen works incredibly well on epic films(especially in a theater) because more of the image meets the eye, and the quality of the image
is enhanced due to the larger print. Why do you think once Widescreen was invented, the greatest directors who ever lived used it exclusively
(Kubrick, Spielberg, Scorsese, Kurosawa switched over to it, Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, and even every Godzilla film post GRA hs used a form of widescreen) ?
When a film is converted to fullscreen, it's actually the one being squished inwards. And you're "annoying black bars" comment makes you sound completely cine-illiterate; as on any modern
day television, if you watch a show or movie in Fullscreen Format, you get the black bars on the sides to a MUCH worse
degree than one for Widescreen. So, that argument is flat out wrong. There just isn't one. The only reason most TV shows and Made-for-TV movies, or movies converted to fit television format, were fullscreen is because there didn't used to be Widescreen TV's, and it was a lot cheaper, due to lower camera and film costs(worse quality) to shoot on, so it made sense. Now with the advent of EVERY TV being sold having Widescreen capabilities, and lower costs of Digital Filming(Widescreen without the expensive film or camera), more and more Television shows are making the move to widescreen format for that more "cinematic" feel. Watching a movie, in fullscreen, in a modern day theater, or on a modern day television looks archaic and horrible
. And don't say it's unfair because you only have older TV's at home. The Film industry cannot halt progress because of some people who still haven't progressed with it. "Full-Screen" is a gimmicky lie that tries to convince people they are filling their TV screen when they are really getting much less image, and probably could get a widescreen film to fill there screen if they could calibrate the settings properly. And a Widescreen film DOES fill the screen in any theater. People are so mindless sometimes.
