The third installment in Kevin Smith
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a sharp and detailed picture that is far superior to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 27. The film was shot in Super 16mm, so film grain is apparent throughout. Unfortunately, the unavoidable grain seems excessive on the DVD, as opposed to the LaserDisc, due to the higher resolution. Colors are rich and vibrant, with nice balance and deep blacks. The darker scenes seem a bit too dark and wanting in shadow delineation, though contrast is improved over the LaserDisc. Edge enhancement is occasionally noticed, and artifacts are apparent throughout.
I read Widescreen Review because WSR is my fog lights that cut through the murk and confusion of the twists and turns of the road to home theatre. It provides clear directions and warning signs to any would-be traveler.
