"The Official Selections" brings to DVD seven of some of the best short films (some of which are award winners) from past Sundance Film Festivals. Four of the seven are presented in widescreen and are reviewed here. Verne Troyer (Austin Powers
The four widescreen short films available on this DVD are not anamorphically enhanced, and are presented in their variable widescreen aspect ratios. Image quality varies from generally satisfying to rather poor. All of these short films are much better suited for smaller home theatre displays, and are not meant to be used for quality demonstrations. Various source element artifacts are noticed throughout. While edge enhancement is not an issue with this DVD, there is some pixel breakup detected. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #91 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I need a magazine at dose and not a sugar coat approach to reviews. I need a magazine that is not bias or a sell-out. And Widescreen Review is my winner. I am a 23-year old audiophile that likes to stay in the know and up to date on whatís new and whatís hot. I can't do that with a magazine that says every single review is a good one, like other mags out there that will be left name-less. The Sound And Vision of a product is important, but donít sell-out to make a buck, and those people out there are the ones who think that Gateway makes a good plasma. Keep up the good work. I love the mag.
