Why the fuck are shows made for TV and never shown in cinemas being produced at super-wide ratios? I know they will fit some phones nicely, but surely no director wants to optimise for a tiny phone screen?

Is it just snobbery? Do directors just associate 16:9 with lesser-quality work? I'd wish they'd get over it because cropping like this shits me.

I prefer 16:9ish aspect ratios even at the movies - it's just a comfortable width and I can see the whole screen. I know people love wider pictures at the cinema, though, and it can be an artistic choice or whatever. Cool, great, enjoy. At the cinema!
