The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing picture with sharp and detailed images. Colors are rich and nicely balanced, though the picture has an appropriately dark quality to enhance the suspense. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. Fine film grain is occasionally revealed. Instances of minor pixelization and edge enhancement are apparent.
I appreciate the technical nature of your DVD reviews; that is, the way you rate the sound and picture quality of newly released DVDs. The reviews in most other magazines are concerned not with how good the DVD is, but with just the film itself: quality of the script, actors' performances, etc., all of which are subject to the critic's personal tastes, which may be wildly different from my own.
