The average person (from my experience at least) really REALLY hates black bars, and wants to get rid of them at all costs. Some bigger ultrawide monitors feature even higher screen resolutions such as 3840×1600 and 5120×2160. No matter what size you enter, the original aspect ratio (proportions) of the movie is preserved, and extra, empty space is added to fill any area not filled by the movie. For example, how the hell was the movie twister shot Widescreen back in the day? The original Super 35 negative was full-frame and the top and bottom were cut off to get the 2.35:1 aspect ratio, not the other way around. If I were to buy the fullscreen version of a movie (example, Harry Potter), would it cut of the top/bottom and/or sides that you would have on the widescreen version? In fact, I have the widest screen that you can buy, and I still can’t avoid the black bars on top and bottom! Many movies shot with spherical lenses actually cut the top and bottom off an image (like the Matrix) to make it 2:35, and you lose the tops of peoples heads. Finally, the price of wide-screen 20" monitors is still higher than for 5:4 displays. just because it fills the tv doesnt mean it is the whole picture. The black bars on the sides are not even that bad. I prefer to look straight ahead or up as opposed to left or right. The Matrix was filmed using spherical lenses rather than anamorphic lenses. The Matrix is not really the best film for this example, because it was filmed in Super 35, as open matte format which compromises very little in the transition from widescreen to pan & scan.

I compared the dvd version of friends and blu Ray version and noticed that it was remastered in 16:9 in a different way as a saw the tiniest bits would be cropped from the top and bottom so friends did a better job with remastering. I don’t see the point in re-adjusting the framing just so that it can fit on a certain screen (and with a lot of movies they often just cut off large parts of the sides). Widescreen is wider. If you do that everything will look stretched out and way too thick”. Most of the media I watch is film, which almost always appears in a widescreen ratio, but when I start watching a TV show in 4:3 with pillarboxing I don’t think “this is unwatchable!” This seems to me like something that a studio or some other entity might think people care about more than they do.

If you put a pan and scan movie on DVD, you’re using much more of the resolution that the DVD offers than you would with a letterboxed movie.
