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 #105 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Since Issue 5 (my first), I focused on reviews of Laser Discs and now DVDs, and From The Editor's Couch. Also, WSR has a lot of punch in the new equipment features. The technical essays have been superb! My home theatre setup depended (and still depends) on knowledge gained from WSR. WSR has become the media reference for me with regard to picture and sound quality assurance in display equipment and widescreen entertainment (movies, music events, and documentaries). I still do not have Issues 1 through 4 or the Premiere Special Edition of WSR and hope you put them on the subscribers' site eventually, so that I can giggle at some of the early typos and slips (if you leave them in). However, I'm sure that the early editions make for interesting historical reading as well, because I believe WSR has moved the display industry forward through the pushing the envelope attitude of Gary Reber. Carry on.
