Based on the novel by Joe Connelly,
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD is intentionally desaturated. Achieved by the bleach bypass process (partial or total elimination of the bleach step in printing), the picture has an overexposed appearance in the hostpital scenes and a somewhat monochromatic appearance in the darker scenes and in the ambulance. While colors are rich and dramatically contrasted, they are also nicely balanced throughout. Images are mostly sharp and detailed, though some scenes are soft and plugged-up. Minor artifacts, occasional edge enhancement and pixelization are apparent.
Reason #102 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I just recently started a home theatre business called Celestial Audio Video. Widescreen Review plays an important part for many reasons. Not only can I keep up with new trends and new technologies, I can understand better, and I am able to also explain to customers about forth-coming products. The in-depth and detail of your articles are not only appreciated but needed. In short, on a professional level your publication is a must-read every month. On a personal level, I enjoy the DVD reviews, the monthly feedback, and editor's couch. I would also like to see more reviews on DVD concerts. As far as I'm concerned, your magazine is top notch for home theatre, unsurpassed by none and stands in a class by itself. A true reference quality publication.
