Katt Williams is a comedian who sets out to be a real Hollywood player. He soon finds out that to do so he must appear in a musical penguin show described as a cross between Brokeback Mountain, March Of The Penguins, and Happy Feet. Katt decides that the Penguin scene is not for him and ditches Hollywood, setting off on a cross-country stand-up tour with some of his friends. It seems Williams knows how to do the American Hustle, when the comedy tour is well received across the nation. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a soft image with generally poor resolution. Black levels and shadow delineation are adequate, and color fidelity is good. Whites can bloom, and details in the brightest portions of the image can get crushed. Fleshtones have a natural appearance and colors in general are nicely saturated and vibrant. Compression artifacts are not problematic, but the image can have a digital look with a hard edginess at times. Edge enhancement is not a problem. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #9 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
WSR is a terrific resource for anyone interested in keeping up with the state of the art in home theatre. It's the only publication I know of that dedicates not only significant space to discussing upcoming trends, but considerable time and effort is spent pushing those trends towards realization. The home theatre cruise, Joe Kane's technical discussions, D-Theater, and in the latest issue, the movement towards establishing a surround sound recording standard are just a few examples of WSR's leadership. Greg Rogerís review of the Sharp XV-Z12000 made me want to run out and buy it, but last year I bought the Sony HS10 projector (sight unseen) purely on the strength of his thorough, detailed review. I have been very happy with my purchase. It is impossible for me to evaluate all of the pros and cons of a piece of equipment by looking at it in a home theatre shop. It just takes too long to become familiar with operational quirks and to judge how things might be different in my home than in the retail environment. I have bought other expensive equipment based largely on your reviews. WSR is to be commended for dedicating the space in its pages to such thorough reporting. Lastly, your Web Site is topnotch. I use it regularly to keep up with industry news and to look up past equipment reviews. It serves as my filing cabinet for a wealth of HT information. Keep up the great work.
