Simba, Rafiki, Pumbaa and more return as the circle of life continues in The Lion King II: Simba
The THX-digitally mastered and anamorphically enhanced DVD (windowboxed and pillarboxed at 1.66:1) exhibits a beautifully animated picture with rich and vibrant colors. Compared to the previously released, non-anamorphic edition, the picture appears cleaner and more solid. However, as was the case with the previous DVD, there is an enhanced effect around the edges that is quite distracting. Still, the picture will surely please its young audience, due to its solid appearance and vivid colors. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #80 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper. I consider Widescreen Review to have the most professional bias of the home theatre magazines. Whereas something like Sound & Vision, I would consider to be more of a consumer bias. One of the things I like about Widescreen Review is the articles about the industry and technical articles (e.g., room setup). I also like its detailed equipment reviews that tell it like it is. One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
