For as long as she can remember, Mona (Driver) has dreamed of winning the Miss American Miss competition. Without the support of her drunken mom or her lecherous stepdad, Mona pays her way through charm school and orthodontia in an effort to be Beautiful enough to win the coveted crown. But when a precocious little girl (Eisenberg) enters Mona
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a beautiful picture, with colors that are as bold as pageant dresses. The fully saturated picture exhibits excellent balance, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered depth and definition. Though not extreme, the picture has a slightly dark character. Still, shadow delineation and contrast are nicely rendered. The appearance of pixelization is infrequent, and the picture should surely delight. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #124 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review for its informative articles and DVD and equipment reviews. Most of my DVD purchases come about after reading your reviews. I was also in the market for an intern projector (cheap) until the DLP projector matured and I could afford the more expensive Runco DLP projector. I went through all of my back issues; I have been a subscriber from your very first premier issue, and came across your article on the Sony VPL-HS10 Video Projector. I was so impressed with this article that I called around town to see who carries them and who had one hooked up, so I could review it. I was so impressed with the image quality for a projector in this price range that I ended up purchasing one, even though I was not in the market for an LCD projector. In fact, I have stopped subscribing to other home theatre magazines because I find your magazine to be more informative and straight-to-the-point. Thanks for your informative articles, and keep up the good work.
