The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is slightly improved over the previously released DVD. Colors are very similar, with brownish fleshtones and brownish-blacks. However, hues like reds and greens can be richly saturated. Images can be sharp and detailed at times, but there are many scenes that appear soft and hazy. Viewing in a completely blackened room is recommended for the dim scenes and limited contrast. There are a few flecks of dirt noticed in the source element. The most noticeable improvement is the decrease in annoying edge enhancement on the new version. (Suzanne Hodges)
Widescreen Review is the only home theatre magazine that puts the reader first. All magazines must cater to advertisers to stay in business, but at WSR you never feel that this article or this review was generated because advertising needed a little boost right now. WSR also provides the depth that I like in its reporting and analysis. I still have every copy that I purchased and that's testament to my feeling of the statue of coverage of equipment and movies for the home movie enthusiast. The series on building the Holosonic Home Theatre was very thorough, and Iím currently using it as I build a new home with a theatre room that will closely resemble the one at your editorial facilities. Some of us do truly appreciate your dedication to doing it right. Thanks for producing an excellent magazine.
