The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD shows nicely balanced colors with natural-looking fleshtones. The image generally has a soft look, with some smearing of the details, taking away from the realism of the picture. Black levels are somewhat milky, but details in the shadows are generally rendered nicely. Edge enhancement is minor and does not become much of a distraction. Pixel breakup is also noticeable from time to time, and source element artifacts can also be recognized. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #112 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The first thing that grabbed my interest was the DVD reviews. But after I purchased that first issue and read the reviews, I got hooked on all of the other information contained in each issue. I had adopted the DVD format fairly early on, and I have had a strong preference for widescreen, dating back to my VHS days. The technical information is a godsend. I feel that I have saved so much money by avoiding inferior quality DVDs. I was very ignorant about the technology out there for home theatre and was not aware of the resources I had that were really going to waste. (5.1 in my movie collection) I read and read and read and finally updated my antiquated system. It is such a wonderful joy to turn down the lights, turn up the sound, and enjoy movies more than I ever could at a theatre. I knew it was worth it even more when my wife said, “Cool” as we watched The Others with true surround sound. Widescreen Review has actually helped improve my quality of life!
