Also available in a Columbia TriStar Double Feature DVD Set containing both the 1954 and 1999 editions.
Still based on the novel by Graham Greene, the 1999 version of the classic tearjerker, The End Of The Affair, just like the 1954 original, once again takes us to England during the start of the Second World War. Sarah Miles (Moore) is still restless and bored with her marriage, and once again (you
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD has a soft appearance giving the picture a classic quality that enhances the setting of the film. Though soft and slightly hazy, images are solid throughout. Colors are rich and warm, with nicely balanced fleshtones and deep, undefined blacks. Shadow delineation and contrast are excellent. The picture is easy on the eyes, with no pixelization or edge enhancement. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
