DVD General Information
MGM Home Entertainment
For strong bloody violence, some graphic sexual content, nudity, and language
A successful businessman, a generous philanthropist, and a fine family man
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD can be hampered by relatively poor black levels, which makes the image look flat and lifeless, but details in the shadows are delivered nicely. Fleshtones can have a slightly sickly, green hue. The picture generally has a harsh look, and pixilation and edge enhancement is noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
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.
