The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a stylized picture that can appear slightly desaturated at times, while other scenes seem to be flooded with warm saturation. Blacks seem just shy of true depth at times. The picture is quite sharp and nicely detailed, with natural clothing textures and facial details. A few flecks of dirt are occasionally revealed in the source element. Overall, the picture can be very nicely rendered, with the occasional nuisance of edge enhancement.

As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform. Of all the magazines and periodicals we receive, I constantly find myself reading WIDESCREEN REVIEW over all the others combined. The articles are well-written, thought-out, and accurate. I also find the Editors Couch and the equipment reviews very useful and informative. Thanks for producing a quality magazine without all the BS you find in most other publications.
