The anamorphically enhanced 1.83:1 DVD has a harsh appearance that is riddled with heavy noise that can be distracting. Color fidelity has a dated appearance, with a brownish hue to the entire presentation. The imagery generally looks soft and somewhat smeared, and fleshtones have a pallid, washed-out look. Black levels are somewhat milky. Edge enhancement is minor and less of a distraction than the considerable amount of noise. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #132 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform. Of all the magazines and periodicals we receive, I constantly find myself reading WIDESCREEN REVIEW over all the others combined. The articles are well-written, thought-out, and accurate. I also find the Editors Couch and the equipment reviews very useful and informative. Thanks for producing a quality magazine without all the BS you find in most other publications.
