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)

I read Widescreen Review, because of all the A/V magazines I read, I trust the writers of Widescreen Review to give the most thorough review and honest opinion of any equipment being reviewed. I count on Widescreen Review to keep me informed on any and all new information in the world of home theatre more than any other source. I also base many of my DVD purchases on the review of the picture and sound of a particular DVD. I always look forward to finding Widescreen Review in my mailbox!
