"Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom" is the sequel to "Raiders," but was actually a prequel (it was curiously set one year prior to the events in "Raiders"), and finds our favorite archaeologist-adventurer (Ford) in India on a quest to locate the Sankara stones that were stolen from a village and return enslaved children to their families. The chief instigator of the PG-13 MPAA rating, the Oscar-winning visual effects and the thrilling mine car chase are among the film's highlights. (Michael Coate)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a colorful picture with fully saturated, well balanced hues, generally accurate fleshtones, and deep, solid blacks. The jungles of India are lush and green, while reds and golds abound in the Pankot Palace. At times, however, fleshtones can appear a bit hot. The picture is sharp and nicely detailed, with very satisfying clarity and definition. Very few scenes appear soft or smeared. Contrast and shadow delineation are quite capable of delivering a natural visual experience in the film
I read Widescreen Review because it has had a consistent editorial perspective since its inception: a no-compromise approach to making home theatre the best that it can be. I have read the magazine cover to cover since Issue 2. Despite staff and reviewer changes over the years, thanks to Gary's leadership this perspective has never changed. As new technologies are introduced, Widescreen Review always provides in-depth analyses of not just the technology itself, but the political and industry forces that may be forcing compromises in its development. You have always sounded the clarion call to stop compression madness or any other madness that may force us to accept a home theatre experience that falls short of what it could be. Thank you!
