Special features include nine behind-the-scenes featurettes (Into The Woods, Whale Watching, Angie Goes Accordian, Bear Witch, Ninja Accordian Player, Forest Shake, Ferry Boat, Hula Mama, and Bridge Over Chilly Waters) and an Angie Stone biography.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a very satisfying picture, with images that are sharp and nicely detailed, though some scenes appear slightly soft or hazy. Colors are rich and nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Pixelization causes the breakup of finer details at times, but edge enhancement is not a problem. Occasional shimmering details are noticed, but nothing that is too distracting. (Suzanne Hodges)
The 5.1-channel audio presentation offers fine fidelity, with a nice, clean low-end presence and a generally palpable sense of spatiality. The on-location recordings have been processed in 5.1, with a somewhat nebulous, contrived-sounding presence. The tonality for the music sounds quite nicely balanced. The LFE channel is rather active and is frequently engaged throughout. The DTS 5.1 audio track could not be accessed due to an encoding error. (Perry Sun)
Reason #102 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I just recently started a home theatre business called Celestial Audio Video. Widescreen Review plays an important part for many reasons. Not only can I keep up with new trends and new technologies, I can understand better, and I am able to also explain to customers about forth-coming products. The in-depth and detail of your articles are not only appreciated but needed. In short, on a professional level your publication is a must-read every month. On a personal level, I enjoy the DVD reviews, the monthly feedback, and editor's couch. I would also like to see more reviews on DVD concerts. As far as I'm concerned, your magazine is top notch for home theatre, unsurpassed by none and stands in a class by itself. A true reference quality publication.
