The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is generally sharp, but wanting in fine background definition and clarity. At times the picture is extremely smeared and plugged-up. Fleshtones are a bit on the orange side, but the dated colors are otherwise balanced with deep undefined blacks.

Reason #40 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love your magazine and am a subscriber! In order of priority, I read Widescreen in order to: 1) Read about home theatre equipment technology that is on the cutting edge. To see where the industry is going, so that I can make informed buying decisions. As an example, when I saw that the DVD Forum Adopts HD-DVD Format (Feb 04), so(delete) I canceled my plans to buy a recordable DVD player, as I can see High Def DVD players are just around the corner. For the same reason, I am also limiting my purchase of movies on regular DVD as well. 2) Read DVD movie reviews, so that I can see whether a DVD is worth buying or not. If a movie receives poor Widescreen ratings on Picture and/or Sound, I probably will not buy the DVD. Rounders is one of my favorite movies, but I refuse to purchase it based on your poor ratings. 3) Home theatre configuration advice. Thanks and keep up the great work.
