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 #30 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because of the honest reviews on home theatre components and the great one-on-one interviews. I subscribe to several home theatre magazines, but hands down Widescreen Review is always a must-read every month, and for that I thank you.
