The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a colorful picture that is typically associated with Spike Lee Joints. Shot on video, the picture exhibits images that are at times harsh, with excessive noise. Other scenes are somewhat solid and smooth. Edge enhancement is noticed, as are aliasing problems. Much of what makes this DVD quite mediocre in image quality is related to the source and Spike Lee
WSR DVD-ROM Review
DVD-ROM Enhancements Rating:
After installing, you are brought to the DVD-ROM main menu, which includes links for reading the Script to Screen, and viewing the Original Web site.The Script to Screen section is not the most attractive, but is easy to read. You can print each section of the script (divided by the chapters of the DVD), or the entire thing.From the Original Web site, you can view a write-up on the story, cast and crew biographies, a listing of the songs in the soundtrack, clips from the Minstrel Show, and four video and five audio interviews. The Minstrel Show clips are satirical, ridiculing comedy of the late 1800s in the south. The features available with this title are well done, but by only transferring the Web site onto the disc, the creators are only showing laziness instead of brilliance.
Reason #81 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I saw my first issue in a newsstand two years ago. The movie reviews caught my attention right away. They were extremely thorough with their inclusion of such items as release dates, aspect ratios, and list of main creators like cinematographer, director, and writers. The breakdown of the critic's composite score is very telling and useful. Equipment reviews are extremely comprehensive and tend to cover a greater range of brands than most publications. One Installer's Opinion is a gem. I've been a subscriber for over a year now and have two of your special publications, both of which are first rate. You seem to be a couple of months ahead of your rival publications with reviews, and new equipment announcements are testament to the quality and dedication of your staff. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next issue as always.
