Includes audio commentary with Oliver Stone, a second commentary with Captain Dale Dye, a Tour Of The Inferno: Revisiting Platoon documentary, behind-the-scenes photo gallery, a poster art gallery, a production notes booklet, and the theatrical trailer and TV spots. Some of these features appeared on the LaserDisc Special Edition.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD appears to be the same as the previously issued anamorphically enhanced DVD. The picture is very solid, with some film grain apparent, but not in excess as it appeared on the previously issued non-anamorphic DVD. Images are nicely detailed, with excellent shadow delineation as rendered in the jungle scenes. Some scenes appear a bit muddy and smeared. Colors are fully saturated exhibiting good balance, but deep blacks often lack definition. A bit of pixelization and edge enhancement is noticed throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)

Reason #7 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Truth is, there is no other magazine, on-line or in print, that covers the substantive issues, controversies, and current topics of the A/V world with as much relevance and detail as WSR does without forcing the reader to filter out the bias of the reviewer. Some other notable sources of information are top-heavy with reviews suffering from too much coloration: the golden eyes or ears syndrome. I prefer the clinical analysis of WSR with a touch of humor thrown in, to make for better reading. Thanks for giving me the facts and helping me with my buying decisions.
