The non-anamorphic 1.85:1 DVD appears to be a production done entirely in home video. Images are wanting in sharpness, and lack detail throughout. Colors are blurred, but are otherwise vibrant with undefined blacks. The picture is poorly contrasted, sometimes under saturated, and exhibits poor shadow delineation. Still, those who purchase this DVD are probably not looking for a reference quality picture.
Reason #76 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Our family has made a significant investment in a dedicated home theatre. Upon reading nearly every other home theatre publication, I have found that Widescreen Review has consistently provided us accurate reviews, and as such have built a substantial library of movies and equipment, which we consider “Keepers.” I find the equipment reviews, especially the Subwoofer Special Edition, to be right on the money and a must-have. The video equipment reviews (we are currently in the market for a front projector) are educationally based as well as comparatively based, so I learn about equipment in general while I can compare specifications. I thank you for a publication well worth the cover price issue after issue.
