What's with HBO?
Can anyone out there please explain why HBO, the premiere cable channel, doesn't show any of its feature films in wide screen? Never. Ever.
Yes, it shows its own original films letterboxed in wide screen.
And it shows its original series, such as "The Sopranos," in wide screen. Even Bill Maher and Bryant Gumble.
Their theatrical trailers are shown in wide screen, but not the films themselves.
Does anyone know? Can anyone explain this bizarre inconsistency? If so, share.
