The made-for-TV sci-fi thriller Race Against Time we see what would happen if we had complete control over our bodies; meaning suicide or selling our organs was perfectly legal.The year is 2008, and a new industry is born: harvesting body parts. The leader in the field is Lifecorps who offers a unique program where they will pay you today for the body parts they need tomorrow. James Gabriel (Roberts) signs up for the deal because he is desperate for money to save his desperately ill young son. The problem is...the diagnosis of his son
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture has a slightly soft quality, though fine detail can be nicely rendered at times. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues, and deep blacks. At times, colors appear slightly subdued. Contrast and shadow delineation are quite pleasing. Though the picture can be a bit flat and wanting in dimension, overall image quality is quite pleasing. Edge enhancement is rarely noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #87 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review for at least three good reasons: 1), Reviews of new, interesting components are uniquely personal and effective. A fine example is the recent piece on the Plinius multichannel amp. 2), I am an early adopter who wants to know about things like Blu-ray and HD DVD. Widescreen Review covers HDTV issues like no other publication. I cannot find this information anywhere else. 3), I consider Joe Kane to be the video display guru par excellence. I have had my 65 inch Mitsubishi RPTV calibrated twice by a technician here. He first calibrated it after I bought it and then after a move. He does a great job. He follows Mr. Kane's arguments in WSR, and we usually discuss his latest manifesto. We trust him, and really agree with him about moving from interlaced to progressive displays of film and video. If you are an enthusiast in this field, and certainly if you are a professional, you have to be conversant with the problems and opportunities covered in Widescreen Review. The smartest thing you could do is pick one up regularly.
