The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits a greatly improved image over the previously released non-anamorphic DVD (Issue 28).

Reason #7 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Truth is, there is no other magazine, on-line or in print, that covers the substantive issues, controversies, and current topics of the A/V world with as much relevance and detail as WSR does without forcing the reader to filter out the bias of the reviewer.
