The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD shows qualities of a source much older than it is, with poor black levels, relatively heavy grain and noise, dated-looking colors, and noticeable source element artifacts. While black levels can be fairly deep at times, night scenes can look washed-out with poor definition in the shadows. Colors have a desaturated appearance and fleshtones look pallid. Resolution is fairly sharp, but there are times when the image can have a digitized appearance. Edge enhancement is not much of a problem. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #35 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
While on vacation at my uncle's house, I was introduced to WSR. My instinct told me it was just another A/V magazine. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down, and I knew this was a keeper. The number one question I receive at work is which is the best sounding movie. With the help of your movie reviews, I now have people calling my cell just to find out which new release sounds the best. Your reviews are always on target! Your product reviews have increased my knowledge beyond expectations. I know that when someone asks me about a new product on the market, all I have to do is wait for my next issue to show up. Your philosophy on sound systems has totally changed the way I go about selling and setting up surround sound systems in my customerís houses. Thanks to WSR I've been able to increase my sales, knowledge, and gain customer satisfaction. In my pursuit for sound perfection WSR is one of my valued assets.
