  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:

DVD Picture:
Compared to the non-anamorphic DVD, this new anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits color fidelity that appears to be slightly refined with more natural fleshtones. Colors are rich and vibrant with deep, solid blacks. The picture is noticeably sharper, with nicely rendered detail and clarity. The difference between the two DVDs is very easily seen, as the new version is much brighter and cleaner. Still, there is, at times, a considerable amount of edge enhancement and some pixelization noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD-ROM Enhancements Rating:

DVD-ROM Review:
Even though this title has pretty much the same features as Jackie Brown (which received an Awesome), I was really expecting more. I was surprised there were not fancy Easter Eggs hidden everywhere, as that would have worked well with this title. There is however, an Enhanced Playback Track, Jack Rabbit Slim's Trivia Twist, Screenplay Viewer, Open Mic Commentary, Articles And Reviews, and DVD Destination Web Site. The Enhanced Playback Track is an interesting feature showing the movie, as well as introducing interesting facts about the different scenes. These facts are later used in the Jack Rabbit Slim's Trivia Twist as questions. The interesting thing about this Trivia Game is you select how many points each question is worth before you answer it, allowing you to risk more on questions you know and less on questions you do not. I could not attain a score high enough to receive a prize, but maybe after I watch the Enhanced Playback a few more times. In the Screenplay Viewer, you can view the screenplay. Shocking, but true. It is laid out like most other screenplay viewers, with easy to read font size and color. You can record and playback your own commentaries to different scenes of the movie in the Open Mic Commentary section. The scenes you do make a commentary for get posted on the Internet where other users can download and listen to what you have to say. This title does have some great features, but I was disappointed to not see more. I know it seems unfair to not give the same rating for a similar title just on preconceptions, but if life were fair we would not be in this situation would we?
