I understand that general sentiment.

2.31:1 or whatever it is is always my preferred ratio. But that has nothing to do with digital vs. film.

With IMAX, it's more about the size of it than anything, obviously. A widescreen IMAX movie would be incredible, though.

It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
