The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is an edge-of-your-seat
Though sourced from a print, the dated picture is quite solid due to the anamorphic transfer. Viewed in component video, colors are rich with deep blacks, but fleshtones are slightly unnatural. The picture is dated throughout, with images sometimes appearing very soft and wanting in clarity, though images sometimes appear sharp. Print scratches, artifacts and film grain are apparent throughout. The imagery would be unacceptable on DVD without the anamorphic transfer. The anamorphic and letterbox aspect ratio measures 2.20:1.
Reason #41 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I subscribed to WSR because I finished building my home theatre and no longer need to subscribe to magazines that give ideas on how to build a theatre. Widescreen Review focuses on the films I would like to see and the equipment I would like to upgrade. It is the next step to the home theatre experience.
