Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee, To Kill A Mockingbird received three Academy Awards
The black and white picture is wonderful on this anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD, with an exceptional gray scale. Images are sharp and detailed, with excellent contrast and shadow delineation. Certainly, as expected for a movie of over 40 years old, some dirt, film grain, and minor scratches are noticed in the source element, but nothing that is too much of a distraction. (Suzanne Hodges)
This newest DVD release of the classic film includes new Dolby
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.
