The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits good quality for its age. Images can sometimes appear very sharp, with fine definition into facial details. Still, some scenes are a bit wanting in definition. Colors are nicely balanced, though dated, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are mediocre. Fine film grain and artifacts are noticed throughout. Though definition is wanting, and some scenes appear a bit pixelized, this is the best the film has ever looked.
Reason #36 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
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.
