So just what does H.O.T.S. actually stand for? Why Help Out The Seals*, of course. But why it means that is anybody
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a distracting amount of often unavoidable film grain. Rarely does the picture appear very solid. Images are sharp, but the picture is dated. The darker scenes are sometimes undefined. Colors are vibrant and balanced throughout, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Overall, the picture looks good for its age, but a more solid picture is expected from an anamorphic transfer.
The Dolby(r) Digital 1.0 soundtrack sounds muted and distorts at times. Some background hiss is present and the poor fidelity makes the audio production comparable in quality to a 1950s film
Reason #36 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it’s simply the best A/V magazine available. No other magazine includes such a comprehensive discussion of developments and potential developments in the field, as well as a detailed analysis of systems and products available. Widescreen Review provides thorough and easy-to-follow “how to” sections in building and setting up home theatre and is the definitive authority on quality DVDs. No other magazine can beat all that. Kudos to Widescreen Review! I will never stop my subscription.
