Special features include up-front previews, an interview with Writer/Director Shane Meadows, seven deleted scenes, a seven-minute making-of featurette, two written essays: Skinhead Culture: Cropped, Braced, & Booted, and The Falklands: A Pathetic War, and the original theatrical trailer.
It is the summer of 1982 in a grim Northern England Coastal town, and 12-year-old Shaun (Turgoose) is out of school for the summer. Having just lost his father in the Falklands War, young Shaun has lots of time on his hands and little supervision. He soon befriends a group of skinheads, who against all expectations are friendly, and take him underwing. But when an older, overly racist member returns to the gang after a stint in prison, the group
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a washed-out image, with gray black levels and little sense of image depth. Colors can occasionally look pastel, especially greens, and fleshtones can look pasty. Colors are slightly undersaturated, and details can look soft. The imagery can look harshly digitized and occasionally the darker scenes can be noticeably noisier than the others. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
