The anamorphicallly enhanced 2.35:1-framed DVD picture on Disc Two (with the first 20-minutes or so presented in 1.78:1 within the 2.35:1 frame) offers digital-to-digital animated images that are of excellent quality. Supporting the natural environments depicted in the story, the colors of the wild are offered in a lovely palette of greens and browns of the earth and gorgeous oranges and violets of sunsets. There are a few instances in which minor halos are noticed around images, but nothing that is seriously distracting. (Suzanne Hodges)An alternate non-theatrical, yet still widescreen 1.66:1
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!
