This new anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits what appears to be the same transfer as the 2000 previously released anamorphic edition, which was obviously an improvement over the 1997 Trimark released non-anamorphic DVD. Though not pristine, the picture is generally sharp, with fine detail occasionally well rendered. Color fidelity is well balanced, with rich, vibrant hues, and neon lights that penetrate a deep black background in the earlier scenes. Film grain is revealed throughout. A bit of pixelization is noticed, and finer details occasionally flicker and break up. Edge enhancement can also be a distraction. (Suzanne Hodges)

Reason #81 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I saw my first issue in a newsstand two years ago. The movie reviews caught my attention right away. They were extremely thorough with their inclusion of such items as release dates, aspect ratios, and list of main creators like cinematographer, director, and writers. The breakdown of the critic's composite score is very telling and useful. Equipment reviews are extremely comprehensive and tend to cover a greater range of brands than most publications. One Installer's Opinion is a gem. I've been a subscriber for over a year now and have two of your special publications, both of which are first rate. You seem to be a couple of months ahead of your rival publications with reviews, and new equipment announcements are testament to the quality and dedication of your staff. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next issue as always.
