The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a vastly improved picture over the previously released DVD. Images are sharper and more defined on this new DVD, and the greatest improvement is the deeper blacks. The non-anamorphic version was severely washed out, and the intentionally dark imagery was tainted by a desaturated appearance. This DVD has rectified the problem, and image quality should surely please fans of the movie. The picture is sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered contrast and shadow delineation. While some pixelization is noticed, the picture is mostly smooth and solid. (Suzanne Hodges)
From the DVD-ROM main menu, you are given links for Enhanced Playback Track, Screenplay Viewer, The Crow Trivia Game, and DVD Destination Web site.The Enhanced Playback Track is great. While you watch the movie, you can read interesting facts about what happened behind the scenes and trivia about the film. To exit this area, you have to click the crow image on the left side of the controls bar.In the Screenplay Viewer section, you can view the screenplay (clever name, no?). This section has a great setup, and is easy to read while viewing the movie.Playing The Crow Trivia game is a lot more difficult then it sounds. I played on the easiest mode possible for half an hour before I even got half way to the end. It may not be as impossible for you Crow maniacs out there. Clicking the DVD Destination Web site will send you online to The Crow
Reason #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
