Strong bloody violence, language and some sexual content/nudity.
The highly contagious and lethal "Reaper" virus has returned to the British Isles three decades after an initial epidemic killed many hundreds of thousands of Britons, causing a brutal quarantine to be imposed across the entire country. Now with parts of the country in total chaos, an elite unit of specialists are dispatched to the affected city where the virus has reared its ugly head again, in hopes of finding a cure by any means necessary. With Doomsday on the clear horizon, the crack team of scientists must fight both time and the infected local residents in order to find a way to kill the virus, once and for all. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD shows nicely balanced contrast combined with deep, unwavering blacks and very good shadow delineation. Details in the darkest scenes are always visible. Resolution is very sharp, and while compression artifacts are noticeable at times, the image generally looks clean. The color palette is cool, with dreary hues that match the story well. Colors are consistently desaturated. Fleshtones appear cool at times and natural at others. Occasional dirt from the source element can be noticed, but it does not become a huge distraction, and while edge enhancement can be noticed over high-contrast transitions, it isn
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
