Who are you kidding? People have been watching 'em on 12" TVs for years!

I am not sure that I understand the point of this article. What size screen is too small? What about sound? Given the argument presented, watching at home on my 60" plasma with surround sound speakers would not be good enough for these films. With this snobbish argument, we should insist that the movie industry not release certain movies to dvd or blu ray since it would be impossible to get the true experience anywhere outside an imax theater.

Jake. Jake!! 2001: A Space Odyssey.--You're right about Barry Lyndon, but I've gotta wonder if you've ever watched 2001 on a big screen? Not one of those extra-large flat panels found all too often in so-called movie theaters, but a big puppy, with good sound and a bit of a curve to the screen (2001 was more a Cinerama type film, after all). 2001, Jake. My God.
