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 #112 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The first thing that grabbed my interest was the DVD reviews. But after I purchased that first issue and read the reviews, I got hooked on all of the other information contained in each issue. I had adopted the DVD format fairly early on, and I have had a strong preference for widescreen, dating back to my VHS days. The technical information is a godsend. I feel that I have saved so much money by avoiding inferior quality DVDs. I was very ignorant about the technology out there for home theatre and was not aware of the resources I had that were really going to waste. (5.1 in my movie collection) I read and read and read and finally updated my antiquated system. It is such a wonderful joy to turn down the lights, turn up the sound, and enjoy movies more than I ever could at a theatre. I knew it was worth it even more when my wife said, “Cool” as we watched The Others with true surround sound. Widescreen Review has actually helped improve my quality of life!
