The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD has a dated quality, with images that are a bit soft, though detail can be nicely rendered at times. Colors are well balanced, though slightly dull. Fleshtones are generally accurate and blacks are quite deep. Still, with less-than-vibrant hues, the color scheme seems appropriate for the subject matter. Contrast seems a bit low at times, but shadow delineation is satisfactory. There is no distracting edge enhancement or pixelization to speak of, though minor shimmering is noticed. Minor source element artifacts are scattered throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #128 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it gets to the details I'm really interested in knowing. It doesn't beat around the bush. I love the DVD reviews and the insightful articles. Besides insightful, WSR seems to be able to put into print some of the latest breaking news in this ever-changing industry within weeks, if not days, of the original release of the news. And last but not least, I have access to the subscription website.
