DVD General Information
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
For mature thematic elements, sexual content and some violent images
Anne Boleyn (Portman) is well known throughout history as the bewitching maid who drove King Henry VIII (Bana) to break ties with the Catholic Church in order to marry her, changing the course of English history forever. Who is not well known is The Other Boleyn Girl, Anne's younger sister Mary (Johansson). Her story was mostly ignored until recently
The anamorphically enhanced 1.84:1 DVD delivers a slightly smeared, soft image, with fine details looking plugged up. Fleshtones also look drab and sickly, but black levels are solid and shadow delineation is defined well. The stylization provides a sense of forboding, and the color scheme
Reason #56 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am most interested in the formats (audio) of DVDs. I buy a DVD, and then it is re-introduced in a deluxe package some time later. I am not that interested in the extras, but the DVD is invariably upgraded in sound. This is usually DTS ES surround but in some cases DTS ES 6.1 (discrete). Most reviews (Home Theater, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Sound And Vision) do not address this situation. I am subscribing to Widescreen Review, hopefully, to solve this problem. I am looking forward to my first issue and a long relationship with your magazine.
