Based upon the book
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD, compared to the beautiful LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 27, exhibits improvements for a more delightful picture. Images are sharp and detailed, with excellent contrast and shadow delineation. Still, some scenes exhibit a slight soft focus. Refinements in color fidelity create a more natural picture that is easy-on-the-eyes. Occasionally, fine details shimmer slightly. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #26 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Before WSR, there was a 4:3 picture tube. After WSR, there is a nice 65 inch widescreen rear projection TV. However, it's only a beginning, because WSR started a dream. The reality looks crisper and clearer now, even the sound is more precise and enveloping. Widescreen Review: P5/S5, one's critic’s composite: 5. Thank you, WSR. Keep up the excellent work!
