Updating the popular Shakespeare, Love
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a generally pleasing picture, with colors that are well balanced, but often undefined. Other times, hues exhibit slight oversaturation, with slightly orange fleshtones. The picture is quite soft throughout, with images appearing hazy and smeared. While intended to look like a 1930s-style musical (a quote from the DVD packaging), the softness is nonetheless distracting. The black-and-white scenes exhibit a good gray scale, and are soft and stylized to resemble stock footage. Source element artifacts are noticed throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #104 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I trust it, and more importantly it is a trust, which has been earned. Reading Widescreen Review is still the best way for me to keep abreast of new products and emerging technologies, and it has heightened my senses and enhanced my appreciation of my own home theatre. Thanks to Widescreen Review, I have been able to make informed purchases, improve the performance of my equipment, and keep it looking and sounding its best. Reading Widescreen Review has changed my life for the better. Were it not for Widescreen Review introducing me to filming techniques; video transferring, production and playback; widescreen TV technologies; and audio production and playback, I probably would not have gone on to study these technologies to the degree that I have.
