Includes audio commentary tracks by the surviving Queen members, reminiscing on the making-of the videos. A second disc of bonus material offers, in the menu selection Hot Space, two additional videos for
"Queen: Greatest Video Hits 2" is just that: a fully restored compilation of Queen
The DVD exhibits more video hits from Queen restored for this DVD in a reframed 1.78:1 aspect ratio and presented in anamorphic widescreen. As with the previous DVD, the restoration makes the best of the often poor source element quality, but the videos are still far from impressive. Colors are generally weak with milky blacks. The picture can be generally sharp to downright blurry. Overall, the videos are quite clean, though a few are revealing of serious scratches or dirt. There is some pixel breakup noticed at times, as well as some minor edge halos. And despite image quality that is generally wanting, these classic videos should give a warm, nostalgic feeling to those who have loved the band for decades. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #40 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love your magazine and am a subscriber! In order of priority, I read Widescreen in order to: 1) Read about home theatre equipment technology that is on the cutting edge. To see where the industry is going, so that I can make informed buying decisions. As an example, when I saw that the DVD Forum Adopts HD-DVD Format (Feb 04), so(delete) I canceled my plans to buy a recordable DVD player, as I can see High Def DVD players are just around the corner. For the same reason, I am also limiting my purchase of movies on regular DVD as well. 2) Read DVD movie reviews, so that I can see whether a DVD is worth buying or not. If a movie receives poor Widescreen ratings on Picture and/or Sound, I probably will not buy the DVD. Rounders is one of my favorite movies, but I refuse to purchase it based on your poor ratings. 3) Home theatre configuration advice. Thanks and keep up the great work.
