Historically accurate, visually invigorating, emotional and compelling, Glory is an epic masterpiece in which Denzel Washington won an Oscar
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD looks virtually identical to the previously released DVD reviewed in Issue 29. The color scheme is quite natural, with accurate fleshtones, rich and warm colors, and deep blacks. Images are sharp, with nicely rendered fine detail, though some scenes are a bit soft. There is a hint of edge enhancement noticed at times, and occasional details shimmer slightly. Still, the picture is quite solid, with minimal film grain and artifacts.
I read Widescreen Review because it’s simply the best A/V magazine available. No other magazine includes such a comprehensive discussion of developments and potential developments in the field, as well as a detailed analysis of systems and products available. Widescreen Review provides thorough and easy-to-follow “how to” sections in building and setting up home theatre and is the definitive authority on quality DVDs. No other magazine can beat all that. Kudos to Widescreen Review! I will never stop my subscription.
