As a consumer--as opposed to a producer--of the movie experience, I find that I don't really care that much whether I'm watching video or film, so long as the composition of the image *fits* the screen. Movies that aren't letter-boxed, for example, drive me crazy. I vastly prefer watching David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" pilot, to his much-better "Blue Velvet," on video--because unless you're seeing "Blue Velvet" on the big screen (or laserdisc?) you're not seeing it the way it was intended to be framed. Frame is everything to me. I know this wasn't the question, though. --Fiona O.
