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 #52 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The DVD reviews are very informative. I especially like the detailed specification information available for both the DVD and the theatrical release of movies. The recent news features are often quite interesting to an amateur audiophile like myself.
