I love that he's now enlisted Meryl Streep into his cadre of go-to actors. Wonder who wrote this one

Something tells me an HBO exec is gonna get a call from Soderbergh in which he reads down a list of his aspect ratio gripes from the last several years, and I'm very pleased to know that this is going to happen

The plot summary makes this sound like Soderbergh’s Woody Allen movie

They have been keeping all of their newer movies in the OAR. I've been noticing this for awhile with the titles they had from Fox, but it's looking like the other studios they have deals with are doing this now as well. One of the recent movies they got distribution from, O.G. was left in it's AR, and a few of their shows are in wider formats too.

You're both wrong, it's his Book Club.

They’re both part of the Phase 3 Candice Bergen Multiverse

Deborah Eisenberg has had an incredibly successful and decorated career as a writer for decades, but sure, reduce her first screenplay to that of a Lifetime movie. Certainly doesn't make this forum seem toxic toward work by female artists or anything. Thankfully it's in very good hands.

Blows me away that there was a Murphy Brown reboot during this administration. Who thought that was a good idea? Who was watching it?

Per the Lifetime comment, I was reducing, tongue-in-cheek, the synopsis, not the work itself.

CBS grasping at straws, hoping the magic an Roseanne reboot could do for ABC would rub off on one of their shows.

It was really a showing of the networks not having a clue, since Roseanne had new and old fans constantly refamiliarizing themselves with that property via Netflix and non-cable syndication and, to my knowledge, Murphy Brown hasn’t aired anywhere for years and the reruns all aged like bananas even when it was airing somewhere

For many people of a certain age, this might have been their only frame of reference.

Haha that’s actually funny, accurate, and sounds like they actually got the original cast to do it. There, in fifteen seconds we already got all of the reunion we’d ever need

From watching some films over the weekend HBO/Cinemax have stepped their game when it comes to showing the original intended aspect ratio of films. It's not just the Fox titles either, as I saw the black bars for films released by Focus Features, Paramount Pictures, Roadshow Attraction, and New Line Cinema.

I think what will happen is that these networks, not to mention all of the popular streaming platforms that already do this with the movies they have, will see less value in doing pan-and-scan, especially when 4K becomes the norm as far as picture clarity. P&S could become as antiquated a concept as the square tube televisions that facilitated the argument to begin with.
