The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD, viewed in component video has a dated appearance that is quite solid, but somewhat soft throughout. Colors are balanced, with nicely rendered fleshtones and deep blacks. The picture has kind of a pasty quality, with poor clarity especially in the darker scenes. Though aliasing problems are usually not distracting on anamorphic titles, this DVD is an exception. Due to the soft, dated quality of the DVD, the picture is mediocre throughout.
Reason #116 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is my favorite magazine because it is different from all the other A/V magazines. The ads are better, and it seems like all the others (that I subscribe to) have the same boring ads. You also have better product information in your equipment reviews. I love the DVD New Release section. It tells me how much I have to save up for DVD purchases. My favorite section is the Coming Soon To A Retailer Near You section. I have learned so much from this magazine I use information from it every day of my life. I am an A/V fanatic. (ask my wife). Anyway, I will subscribe to this mag forever. Thanks for such a great magazine
