The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits colors that are bold and vibrant, with deep blacks. Hues, however, touch over saturation at times, appearing overly red, with fleshtones appearing hot, and whites with a hint of pink at times. Images are generally sharp, but finer details are wanting, with the picture appearing slightly smeared at times. There is some apparent edge enhancement. The source element is revealing of a few artifacts and dirt, as well as a little bit of film grain. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #16 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read to try and find the best quality movies for sound and video. Too many movies these days have horrible sound and with today’s home theatres seem unacceptable. Also, equipment reviews are helpful.
