The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture, but colors are generally balanced and sometimes vibrant. Images are sharp and detailed, though fine definition is wanting. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. There are few distracting enhanced edges or pixelization. Fine film grain is revealed throughout the picture, but the transfer is quite clean.
Reason #45 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR because I enjoy configuring my home entertainment system myself. I don't have enough disposable income to buy all new components and hire an installer to set it all up. So, I have relied on WSR to guide me in almost all aspects of the (continual) upgrade process. I have always stayed glued to the reviews so that I can choose where my dollar is going to affect the greatest impact in my system. When you have a tight budget to work with, even the smallest purchase decisions make a difference.
