The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD has a desaturated look, awash in earthy hues of brown. Resolution is generally good, but the imagery often looks somewhat smeared and soft. Black levels are slightly milky, with the entire image often looking somewhat washed out. Shadow delineation is not great, as the near-black portions of the video can look crushed. Edge enhancement is not overly obtrusive, and the print is very clean. (Danny Richelieu)
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!
