The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD is a dramatic improvement over the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 10. The dated picture exhibits sharper and more refined images when compared to the LaserDisc. Colors are more naturally rendered, with realistic shadow delineation, while the nighttime scenes on LaserDisc seem almost black-and-white. Film grain is revealed, but the overall picture is much more solid than the LaserDisc. Image quality, when viewed alone, is generally mediocre.
Reason #101 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because I like dealing with home theatre. I like watching movies the way they are intended to be seen by the Director at the most optimum grade. I am a student at NJIT studying for Electrical Engineering, and hopefully, I will be working in this fascinating world of audio/video.
