Though not anamorphically enhanced (or labeled as being widescreen on the jacket), the 1.78:1-framed DVD picture looks quite good. Colors are rich and well balanced and shots of King and the performers on stage are nicely presented with full saturation. While finer details can appear a bit soft, sharpness is really not too bad. Of course, there are aliasing problems, like on the guitar strings and stage details that create a shimmering distraction. Overall, this is a very pleasing picture for a DVD that lacks the superior resolution of anamorphic processing. (Suzanne Hodges)
I saw my first issue in a newsstand two years ago. The movie reviews caught my attention right away. They were extremely thorough with their inclusion of such items as release dates, aspect ratios, and list of main creators like cinematographer, director, and writers. The breakdown of the critic's composite score is very telling and useful. Equipment reviews are extremely comprehensive and tend to cover a greater range of brands than most publications. One Installer's Opinion is a gem. I've been a subscriber for over a year now and have two of your special publications, both of which are first rate. You seem to be a couple of months ahead of your rival publications with reviews, and new equipment announcements are testament to the quality and dedication of your staff. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next issue as always.
