This new anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture is a noticeable improvement over the previously released non-anamorphic DVD (Issue 27). Colors are richly saturated with vivid blues, bright greens, bold reds, and deep blacks. Fleshtones quite often are very well balanced (though sometimes appearing a bit hot). Viewing in a completely blackened room is recommended to compensate for the many dim scenes within the picture and will reveal that shadow delineation is right on. Only the most scrutinizing viewers will noticed edge enhancement from time-to-time, and smearing and pixelization are also a rare find. Rarely does the picture show signs of its age, as it does not have that typical 1980s pink tinge. This is a nicely rendered DVD that is a definite replacement for the previously released edition.

Reason #83 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
