The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD exhibits a very nicely rendered picture with vibrant colors that are well-balanced. Sharpness is quite satisfying, with satisfying details and impressive contrast and shadow delineation. The scenes with bothersome edge enhancement on the previous DVD are much cleaner, and appear merely edgy but without the blatant halos. Pixelization is rarely a problem with this title, as the picture is often quite clean and solid. (Suzanne Hodges)

Reason #114 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I appreciate the technical nature of your DVD reviews; that is, the way you rate the sound and picture quality of newly released DVDs.
