  1. I watched a bit of The Hunger Games movie on Sunday whilst I was waiting for my wife to join me in the lounge to watch Captain Phillips. I never watch movies on TV, including Sky, as I import most movies to NZ well before they appear on TV. The most annoying thing that TV stations regularly do is screen the movie in an incorrect aspect ratio – normally down from 2:35:1 down to 1:78:1 to fill the screen as some people don’t like the black bars top and bottom of screen. This approach means that we are missing out on a sizeable amount of the picture. I much prefer movies filmed in 2:35:1 aspect ratio as this adds a lot more scope to the movie.
