When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in the early 1980s
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD shows pale fleshtones, although different shades are delineated nicely. Flesh occasionally has a slightly pinkish hue as well. Black levels are relatively deep, and shadow delineation is nicely rendered. Details are resolved well. Colors are bold and vibrant with natural-looking saturation. Pixel breakup is rarely noticeable, but edge enhancement can be recognized on high-contrast transitions. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #50 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Your magazine was the only one available to me that not only provided forward-looking articles (such as reports on the development of the HDTV standard), but also provided information on equipment and offered the only reviews I could find on Laser Discs. Thanks to your publication, most of my video library is letterboxed. I am now prepared for my dream HDTV. Thanks for the information that allows me to prepare for the future!
