Also available in "The High School Reunion Collection" DVD set which includes "The Breakfast Club," "Sixteen Candles," and "Weird Science."
Geeks and brat-packers remastered! Three of John Hughes' most popular movies -- "The Breakfast Club," "Sixteen Candles," and "Weird Science" -- have been re-issued with 16:9 enhancement, and are available individually or as a DVD set. In addition, two of the three titles are appearing with multichannel soundtracks for the first time, and all three have their original songs intact (some songs were replaced with alternate songs in previous home video editions).Samantha Baker (Ringwald) is a slightly melancholy teen on the verge of seeing Sixteen Candles on her birthday cake. But, her family is so busy preparing for her older sister
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD looks great for its age, with few obviously dated characteristics. Colors are quite natural, with accurate fleshtones and generally deep blacks. Images are generally sharp and detailed, with nicely balanced contrast and shadow delineation. A few minor flecks of dirt are noticed in the source element. There is little in the way of pixelization or edge enhancement, leaving few distractions to detract from this John Hughes classic. (Suzanne Hodges)
The 5.1 remastered soundtracks offer generous doses of spatial engagement from the repurposed music. There
Reason #35 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
While on vacation at my uncle's house, I was introduced to WSR. My instinct told me it was just another A/V magazine. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down, and I knew this was a keeper. The number one question I receive at work is which is the best sounding movie. With the help of your movie reviews, I now have people calling my cell just to find out which new release sounds the best. Your reviews are always on target! Your product reviews have increased my knowledge beyond expectations. I know that when someone asks me about a new product on the market, all I have to do is wait for my next issue to show up. Your philosophy on sound systems has totally changed the way I go about selling and setting up surround sound systems in my customerís houses. Thanks to WSR I've been able to increase my sales, knowledge, and gain customer satisfaction. In my pursuit for sound perfection WSR is one of my valued assets.
