aziz ansari is a pissed off star trek fan

I watched Star Trek again over the weekend. It's just a really fun, cool summer movie. I did not, however, see it on IMAX. And neither did comedian Aziz Ansari, star of NBC's Parks and Recreation. At least, not the "true" IMAX experience.

He recently went to go see Star Trek in what he believed would be an IMAX screen. Though it cost an extra $5 over the standard ticket price, at the time he thought it would be worth it. According to his blog, it was not: WARNING: AMC theaters are running FAKE IMAX's and charging $5 extra for a slightly bigger screen. Boycott IMAX, AMC, and Regal. Don't let them fool you.

Instead of Star Trek projected on a six-story screen, Aziz found himself in a theater with a screen only slightly larger than normal... by most technical definitions, not a true IMAX presentation. He felt wronged, and subsequently turned his rage into an internet sensation: Comedian Aziz Ansari Really Mad About 'Fake' IMAX.
