Denzel Washington is Bleek Gilliam, a passionate trumpet player, in the noisy Spike Lee Joint Mo
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is slightly soft and hazy in character, though detail can be nicely rendered at times. Colors are rich and solid, with good balance, generally accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Minor source element artifacts are apparent throughout, as is film grain. At times, edge enhancement is noticed. While the picture is generally solid, some may find the soft quality of the picture bothersome. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #105 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Since Issue 5 (my first), I focused on reviews of Laser Discs and now DVDs, and From The Editor's Couch. Also, WSR has a lot of punch in the new equipment features. The technical essays have been superb! My home theatre setup depended (and still depends) on knowledge gained from WSR. WSR has become the media reference for me with regard to picture and sound quality assurance in display equipment and widescreen entertainment (movies, music events, and documentaries). I still do not have Issues 1 through 4 or the Premiere Special Edition of WSR and hope you put them on the subscribers' site eventually, so that I can giggle at some of the early typos and slips (if you leave them in). However, I'm sure that the early editions make for interesting historical reading as well, because I believe WSR has moved the display industry forward through the pushing the envelope attitude of Gary Reber. Carry on.
