Like the previously released DVD, the anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD has a soft, smeared look, with images that are only generally sharp and detailed. Colors can appear well balanced, but are at other times slightly plugged-up with brownish fleshtones and hues that are wanting in definition. Though soft, the picture is quite solid. Occasional edge enhancement is noticed, as well as minor shimmering, for a picture that is generally mediocre throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #48 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
In addition to Widescreen Review, I subscribe to several audio/video publications, such as Sound And Vision, Stereophile, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Audio Video Interiors, and peruse through the myriad of British audio video publications when I go to Borders, Barnes & Nobles, or Tower Records. I must acknowledge that Widescreen Review is one of the better ones because it is more like a trade publication than a magazine full of advertisements. Moreover, Widescreen Review was one of the first publications to delve into DVI and more importantly, HMDI, which I deem important because it can make a lot of the current products out there obsolete. Put simply, Widescreen Review is The New York Times of audio/video publication. In other words, if you want real news, you read The New York Times. To stay on top of what’s happening in the audio/video industry, you read Widescreen Review. Enough said.
