Heart first released their Dreamboat Annie album in 1976...fast forward 30-plus years later to The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, and you will find Ann and Nancy Wilson still rocking out and tearing up the stage in this live performance. Recorded in its entirety on Mother
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows solid black levels, but shadow delineation is generally poor, leaving images looking dark and flat. Noise is also apparent in the darkest portions of the picture at times, which is not always apparent. Flesh also looks rather flat, with little life or realism. Long shots can be destroyed by pixilation and edge enhancement, which is also a distraction. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
