La Vie En Rose depicts the tragic life of France
The anamorphically enhanced 2.33:1 DVD exhibits a smeared image that looks noticeably soft. Black levels are somewhat milky, but details in the shadows are delivered nicely, which can give the picture a dimensional appearance. Colors are somewhat subdued and undersaturated and the palette is dominated by hues of green and brown, giving the picture a downtrodden look. Pixel breakup and compression artifacts are noticeable at times throughout the presentation and, edge enhancement is also noticeable on the highest contrast transitions. (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.
