The first thing I noticed about the Music Of The Heart DVD was its snappy packaging. Miramax took a regular-sized keepcase and added a hinged tray to hold the extra disc (with the other in its normal spot). I like it! My only concern was in regard to marketing. A double case lets people know there

The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 picture exhibits excellent quality, with sharp and detailed images. Colors are warm and vibrant, with balanced fleshtones and deep, pure blacks.

I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
