The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is slightly dated, but exhibits otherwise pleasing quality. Images are sharp, with nicely rendered detail, though the darker scenes seem a bit plugged-up. Colors are well balanced and nicely saturated, with accurate fleshtones and generally deep blacks. Minor film grain and source element artifacts are detected, but nothing too excessive. Overall, the picture should not disappoint, exhibiting minimal edge enhancement or pixelization. Image quality fares slightly better than the original. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #132 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform. Of all the magazines and periodicals we receive, I constantly find myself reading WIDESCREEN REVIEW over all the others combined. The articles are well-written, thought-out, and accurate. I also find the Editors Couch and the equipment reviews very useful and informative. Thanks for producing a quality magazine without all the BS you find in most other publications.
