DVD General Information
Pervasive strong crude sexual content including dialouge and nudity, and for some drug material
Comprised of ten overlapping stories, each inspired by one of The Ten commandments
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD generally looks good, with acceptable resolution and nicely balanced colors. Fleshtones can look somewhat washed out, with faces looking somewhat pallid and lacking in color. Black levels are fairly well rendered, although there are times when they can look somewhat too gray. Shadow delineation is generally good as well, and the picture can have a nice dimensionality to it. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #40 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love your magazine and am a subscriber! In order of priority, I read Widescreen in order to: 1) Read about home theatre equipment technology that is on the cutting edge. To see where the industry is going, so that I can make informed buying decisions. As an example, when I saw that the DVD Forum Adopts HD-DVD Format (Feb 04), so(delete) I canceled my plans to buy a recordable DVD player, as I can see High Def DVD players are just around the corner. For the same reason, I am also limiting my purchase of movies on regular DVD as well. 2) Read DVD movie reviews, so that I can see whether a DVD is worth buying or not. If a movie receives poor Widescreen ratings on Picture and/or Sound, I probably will not buy the DVD. Rounders is one of my favorite movies, but I refuse to purchase it based on your poor ratings. 3) Home theatre configuration advice. Thanks and keep up the great work.
