The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a beautiful digital-to-digital transfer, with superb image quality in all aspects. Like the original Toy Story, colors are rich and vibrant with excellent balance. Images are sharp and finely detailed into "backgrounds." The amount of detail seen in this movie is absolutely breathtaking and revealing of how much care went into its creation. Contrast and "shadow delineation" are superb, with excellent visual information in the darker scenes. There are no distractions, though, for the record, one instance revealed a slight shimmer in the picture. The visuals are absolutely stunning.
It sat on the nightstand while my husband was deployed. It was “his” magazine. I had my own cooking, home decorating type magazines to peruse. However, one night I reached for Widescreen Review. It was love at first read. I learned so much about new technology and products. I enjoyed the articles and appreciated the reviews. My husband returned home from his military commitment in early July. We now share the magazine, and sometimes we even fight over it.
