Based on the characters created by Graham Yost,
This new anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is undoubtedly preferred to the previously released DVD (Issue 39). Also apparent overuse of noise reduction results in the loss of fine details and smearing. There are still some instances in which aliasing is noticed, but the distraction is not as apparent as on the previous DVD. Colors appear somewhat plugged-up at times and wanting in dimension, but are overall nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Pixelization is noticed at times, but there is little edge enhancement. (Suzanne Hodges)
I feel the picture/sound reviews are very accurate. The reference systems are awesome. The WSR staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The on-line version of the magazine is a great reference tool. It is the most technically advanced home theatre magazine out there. If you consider yourself a serious home theatre buff, you should subscribe! It doesn't get anymore cutting edge than your Reference Holosonic Home Theatre Laboratory. Gary Reber has the coolest job on the planet!
