I'm strongly opposed to them callously cropping this shit. It's equally as egregious as the "full screen" DVDs that were popular in when people had square TVs. I want to watch the shit as its creators intended. It's actually condescending on HBO's part to think that audiences wouldn't watch something shot in a 4:3 aspect ratio. (Ironically, Grand Budapest Hotel is HBO's marquee movie now, and they're showing it in the proper format, without cropping.) I would have been fine with the HD remasters if the "square" format (which was a conscious aesthetic choice) was left intact.
