On the What Netflix Does website, a look at how Netflix chops up the aspect ratio of movies it plays.
Netflix does not always respect the original aspect ratio of films.
This would be by far my biggest complaint about the service, but not so many people seem to talk about it out here.
Let this place be a desperate cry for help.
(Note that I jump between different Netflix regions. The same film could have different aspect ratios in different countries.)
