Filmed on location at the Georgia State Prison, The Longest Yard begins like no comedy I
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture that is mediocre at best. Contrast seems slightly low, and shadow delineation is wanting in definition and visual information in the darker scenes. The dated colors are fairly well balanced, with fleshtones appearing a bit rich at times, and deeper hues lose definition. Images are generally sharp, but fine details occasionally shimmer. Minor edge enhancement is noticed, but is relatively infrequent Source element artifacts and film grain are detected. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
