Buddy cops Martin Riggs (Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Glover) are back with their guns drawn in a sequel that is just as good as the first. This time the delightful bachelor Riggs and family man Murtaugh are in charge of Leo Getz (Pesci), a fast-talking government witness who knows a dangerous secret about laundering drug money.
The previously released non-anamorphic DVD does not look nearly as sharp or clean as this new, anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD. Colors are rich, with balanced hues and deep, pure blacks.

I love your magazine and am a subscriber! In order of priority, I read Widescreen in order to: 1) Read about home theatre equipment technology that is on the cutting edge. To see where the industry is going, so that I can make informed buying decisions. As an example, when I saw that the DVD Forum Adopts HD-DVD Format (Feb 04), so(delete) I canceled my plans to buy a recordable DVD player, as I can see High Def DVD players are just around the corner. For the same reason, I am also limiting my purchase of movies on regular DVD as well. 2) Read DVD movie reviews, so that I can see whether a DVD is worth buying or not. If a movie receives poor Widescreen ratings on Picture and/or Sound, I probably will not buy the DVD. Rounders is one of my favorite movies, but I refuse to purchase it based on your poor ratings. 3) Home theatre configuration advice. Thanks and keep up the great work.
