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 #123 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for the articles—honest. Terry Paullin's industry insight is refreshing and lively. The lack of comparisons of which home theatre-in-a-box is best or which sub $200 DVD player is best leaves more room for in-depth product and movie reviews. Most importantly, though, I read WSR for the caricature of Gary Reber morphed on to the movie featured on the cover in the Editor's Couch page. Pierce Brosnan had better watch out!
