  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Documented since the 1970

DVD Picture:
This 1.78:1 DVD picture, although anamorphically enhanced (not labeled) is not of very good quality. Much of it is shot on poor quality video and is completely lacking in details. Colors vary from unnaturally hot to blown out and undersaturated. Edge halos are often noticed. Shimmering details, aliasing artifacts, and pixel breakup are all problems with this visual experience. The still photographs of the crop circles are often pleasantly sharp, however. Most people interested in this subject matter will not be expecting much in the way of image quality, and this title is better suited for smaller home theatre displays. (Suzanne Hodges)
