Compared to the problematic non-anamorphic DVD (reviewed in Issue 31), this new anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits long-awaited improvements. Certainly the picture can still have a dated appearance, but images are sharper and more solid throughout. Colors are also well-balanced, with accurate fleshtones, pleasing saturation, and generally deep blacks. Some pixelization and minor edge enhancement are noticed at times, but overall this is a nice re-issue. Minor artifacts are inherent in the source element, but not nearly as obtrusive as on the previous DVD. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #12 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I started with the Ultimate Widescreen DVD Movie Guide and havenít missed an issue since. I thought it would be nice to have a good resource for DVD reviews, but itís turned into so much more. Itís to the point where if I don't see certain segments in the mag (new products, one installer, etc.), I feel a little disappointed. Please keep up the great work.
