Compared to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 26, the THX digitally mastered 2.55:1 DVD exhibits improved clarity and sharpness, though not anamorphically enhanced. Colors are fully saturated with balanced fleshtones and deep blacks, appearing more refined when compared to the LaserDisc. While a nice improvement over the LaserDisc, aliasing problems can be distracting. Viewed along, the picture is wanting in sharpness and detail for generally mediocre visual quality.
Reason #14 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Well, I spent most of my young years in the military (U.S. Ranger). My father really got me going in home theatre gear. There’s nothing like getting a good movie on DVD, turning on my HDTV, my Sony a/v receiver, and sitting down for good quality entertainment. I still enjoy the articles and reviews you give me. Please keep doing a great job. I look forward to the next issue.
