The anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 DVD exhibits fairly solid black levels and good shadow delineation, although the image can look somewhat flat at times. Color fidelity is fairly good and fleshtones look natural. Resolution is generally good, but there are many instances when the imagery can look soft and under-defined. Contrast is nicely balanced for the most part, but occasionally whites can look slightly overblown. Compression artifacts can be distracting fairly often. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #71 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Before reading WSR I was an electronics nebbish. After reading WSR for more than a year, my friends and family consult me on purchasing TVs, sound systems, DVD players, and DVDs. I explain to them the differences between HDTV ready and capable, how to select a TV, DVD, and sound system and recommend that they become an expert like me by buying a copy of WSR. My life has new meaning!
